I've not used that series, but I do own an ATN Thermal scope- one of the 640p versions.
I've not hunted with it yet- zeroing it in has proven difficult only because I can't generally fire off rifles out back and thermal isn't going to
work on a paper target at the range.
I have, however, carried it around as a spotting scope- and the thermal is amazing.
Deer standing still in thick cover in daylight are clear as day through the thermal, even when I can't see them with a 6x fixed scope. Same for
coyote... in the pitch black maine woods at night you can spot a mouse at 30 yards with this thing, it's nuts.
I did take it out to the deep woods last weekend to try and sight it in using candles as targets, but found that at 75 yards the resolution just
wasn't really enough to see THAT well.
To sight it in you'd probably need to bolt the rifle to something solid and start with a 30yd target, zero, move out to 60, then 100... I might try
again next weekend, but the trick would be moving the target between zeros- You're supposed to take the shot, then tell the scope where it hit vs
where you aimed so it can "correct" for you. Maybe a piece of plywood and a hot piece of steel for the bullseye is what I need.
