10-60×52 March Zoom Scope Makes Debut

There’s a new high-magnification zoom scope in development that will offer precision shooters “more power” than ever before. Lou Murdica, who has been working directly with Deon Optical/Koto Precision in Japan, makers of the March 40x BR scope, is getting a new prototype variable-power March that tops out at 60-power. That’s some serious magnification ladies and gentleman.

In addition to the 60X magnification, the new March promises best-in-class resolution and, importantly, ultra-reliable tracking. We’re pleased to see that the zoom March offers 60 MOA of elevation–good enough for 1000 yards. The scope has a 52mm objective, 30mm main tube, 40 MOA of windage, and weighs 24.8 ounces (704 grams). It has a side-focus parallax control, 1/8-MOA clicks, and focuses from 50 yards to infinity. Currently, the only reticle choice is a 1/16-MOA dot, but that could change with production models.

Lou hopes to use the March 10-60×52 at 200 yards next week in the NBRSA Nationals hosted at the Kelbly’s Range (Ohio). Here are the remaining specs for Lou’s new scope:
