Playing around with my first ‘night vision’ optic. Went with ‘night vision’, over ‘thermal’. Both have pros and cons. The ‘night vision’ fits more into my needs. Purchased the ATN 4K Pro 5-20X, plus the IR850 Supernova, and the ABL 1500 laser range finder. Took it out for the first time yesterday to run some simple test. The ‘one shot zero’ works very well. Scope holds zero very well. The IR850 Supernova illuminator is a huge upgrade from the stock IR850 that comes with it. Can see in pitch black darkness for hundreds of yards, with very good target identification. The ABL 1500 is accurate. So far tested out to 300 yards, and it was dead-on accurate. Once I develop a load for this setup, and enter the ballistic data into the scopes computer, I simply range the target, and place the cross-hair on where I wish for the projectile to impact the target, then press the trigger. No more hold-overs, or guessing the distance.
