Hi guys, how's it been?

What do you guys think about a clearidge 4.5-14x40 on an s200? Purpose, I would say 80% non-competitive target shooting and 20% hunting.

Too much scope? Too large? Too heavy?

Length = 14.5 inches.
Weight = 19.4 oz

Never owned anything larger than a x32 bell size

... perfect for my CZ 200S (same gun). It's about 12 inches and 12 ounces.

This is all subjective of course, but to me 14.5 inches and 19.4 would be a little more than I would like, and it might make the gun a bit top heavy. That said, I think your proposed scope is doable, just not ideal.

I bought my scope used here on the classifieds a few years ago. I had not tried a Clearidge scope and the price was right and I bought it. It is a great scope. It rivals the Bushnell Elites in clarity to me and just about everybody that I have let look though it said the same thing.

I know you did not ask about other scopes but, if you want a neat package, consider the Clearidge Ultra RM 3-9x32 AO, " with fine cross hairs".

I have owned one with fine cross hairs for about three years and love it.
At 50 yards, you can put the center of the cross hairs "inside", a half inch dot or square with room to spare.
Also, have no problem with centering on a squirrel in a tree unless he is in a dark spot. In this situation, 95% of the time, small game could not be seen with thicker cross hairs either.

I have a Burris Timberline 4.5-14. AT 50 yards, I can shoot just as good of groups with the Clearidge 3-9 as I can with the Timberline 4.5-14.

In case you are interested:

Clearidge Ultra RM
3-9x32AO
length - 11.5"
weight - 11.9 oz
AO - 10 yds - Infinity

# 3310 - fine cross hairs

about $145. at Optic Zone

... I like it, but those crosshairs are really fine. You are right that they make the 9x zoom feel as accurate as a 12x or 16x, but I wish they were about 50% thicker -- they'd still be very fine!

I will do some thinking before my purchase. Either way I will purchase a mil-dot reticle.
