On the Cabela's Euro Riflescopes, IK-713696, the 100 yard line in the EXT reticle is the main horizontal line in the reticle. The picture that we have showing what the reticle looks like is a little confusing, because we show the picture of the reticle zoomed out, and then we show a second picture that is zoomed in focusing on just the extra reticle lines. Below is a link to the picture, which you may be able to see a little better than the one in the catalog.

No, when you look thru an actual scope, you will see they are not. I know it looks that way in the catalogue but it's not.

I have mounted this scope (3x9 40mm) on three firearms, Weatherby Vanguard (300 Win Mag), Savage M14 (270 WSM) and a TC Icon (.280 Rem) and I used medium rings. I prefer the Warne permanent rings. Height varies a little between different ring manufactories but medium fits the best.

Pretty sure that is a well kept secret. I now have 5 of the Alaskan series. All are by far the best scopes I have owned! Last yr I beat one up pretty good bear hunting for 10 days. Stayed true. I was amazed.

Question

MOA per turret click?

I bought the 6-20x40 Alaskan Guide scope about two years ago (pleased with it). My turrets read 1/8" per click at 100 yards, though I see the model as currently posted claims 1/4" per click. I am curious why the change was made.

Cabela's Alaskan Guide® Premium Riflescope (712036). The 3-9x40 choice would use medium height rings. You would also need a scope mount base specifically for your Marlin XL7.

Question

Is there a Rain Guard type coating on outside lenses?

In the latest Cabelas Shooting catalog it says these scopes have a Rain Guard type of external lens coating, that implies prevents outside lens fogging. I see no mention of that in the online description. Please confirm this.
