It's tough to describe the satisfaction of owning a great rifle scope. My journey towards the Midas HMR started with a shot in the dark purchase that didn't work out too well. Athlon customer service was very, very good at helping me resolve the issue. The scope I was having trouble with was no longer in production so the nice gentleman in customer service offered me a similarly priced scope or an upgrade for a reasonable price. I chose to spend a few extra bucks and get the Midas HMR. Boy am I happy that I tried this scope! It worked perfectly mounted to a 6mmAR. The field of view is quite generous at any power and the eye relief is long enough for use with the hardest kicking rifles....although my little 6mmAR is a pussycat. For my intended uses the Midas HMR 2.5-15x50 AHMR MOA is the perfect choice. From the prairie dog towns to the coyote woods this scope will have you covered........early morning to late evening!

By far my favorite scope for night hunting. I have tried vortex, konus, leupold and a sig electro and my pick is this midas hmr. Very clear and very bright glass. The illuminated reticle doesnt glare in the sight picture and drown out what you are looking at. The magnification range of this scope is perfect for those cats that sneek in close or those coyotes that hang up at 200 yards +. I like the capped target turrets, i dont have to constabtky check my turrets in the dark but it has the capability to dial out if I need/want to. I run this scope on my 220 swift and my 22-243AI. I highly reccomend this scope.

After trying Vortex, Leopold, Sig and a couple of other scopes for night hunting I found the Athlon midas HMR. Hands down the best night hunting scope I have used. The fact that this scope is a 2.5-15 makes it easy to get on target for those coyotes that seem to pop up right on top of you out of nowhere. The illuminated reticle does not flare up and blind out your target in the dead of night. The 30mm tube lets in lots of light with a wide field of view. I like the capped turrets so that I don't have to constantly check if I am on zero climbing in and out of the high rack. But if I am able to dial out If I need to. I currently have two of these scopes on a 220 swift and a 22-243AI. I highly recommend this scope.

I have used a wide variety of optics on various rifles, from high-end tier 1 optics to cheap rimfire scopes. I wanted a SFP optic for a long-ish range hunting rifle. This scope is, IMO, perfect for this application.
The eyebox is very forgiving at max mag, the glass resolves very well and shows good contrast, and the color rendering is neutral. There's a bit of barrel distortion at the low end of the mag range, but it's reasonable for the zoom range and it's pretty much unnoticeable after 8x or so. All the controls move easily and smoothly. This scope really shines in low light at lower mag where the 50mm objective gives you a very large exit pupil that really maximizes the available light. The AHMR reticle is, IMO, the perfect width for this application being thin enough not to obscure the aiming point and bold enough to see against all but the darkest of backgrounds (and then there's the illumination for those conditions). Parallax is marked down to 10 yards and I've tested it down to 8 yards at max mag. As the magnification is lowered the depth of field really expands making it possible to leave parallax set, let's say for 100 yards, and the image stay in focus for objects up close (25 yards) and far away (250 yards). Optically this scope is really well balanced for hunting.
Unlike many scopes with capped turrets, the turrets on the Midas HMR are tactile and solid with no play between detents - they feel like the turrets of a tactical scope that have been scaled down to fit under the caps. It doesn't have a zero stop, but the turrets are resettable. This makes it actually useful as a long-range hunting scope where you might need to dial for a ballistic solution. The parallax knob is very smooth and moves easily making it easy to dial out parallax and focus on the target. I can say that this scope has the best mechanical feel of any hunting scope I've used.
This is really an impressive package for the price, and IMO it may be the best value in a SFP hunting optic out there. And of course, it's backed by Athlon's outstanding reputation for customer service. I have zero regrets about buying this scope and recommend it 100% for a mid- to long-range hunting optic.
great scope. i hesitated on buying for my 22lr because i do a bit of target shooting with it as well. the reticle size is perfect, not too small that it's invisible but not too thick that it covers the targets. the glass is clear, the parallax adjustment is great, and the illumination is a nice touch. i liked it so much i have ordered another for my 6.5 creedmoor, and have a midas tac on another gun. i have only good things to say about the midas line.
