Welcome to the Social Regressive! In a few videos I've referenced this Weavergrand slam multi stop scope as the weirdest scope that I've ever tested andin my testing I found that it works really well for certain applications; sowhat we're gonna do is we're gonna delve into this scope we're gonna take a lookat those peculiarities and see if maybe this applies to certain functions thatyou have in mind.
now before we do that I wanted to give a shout out to my patronsof the destructive arts thanks a bunch you guys for helping me to get certaingear like some of the lights and cameras and review gear that we have here andjust ammunition, powder, all kinds of stuff like that so you guys out there ifyou're not a patron if you want to see more reviews like this in depth reviewson scopes in-depth reviews on rifles fun tests and accurized techniques thingslike that then consider just kicking a buck a month out to patreon so let's goahead let's take a close look at this Weaver grand slam multi stop scope andsee what makes it work the grand slam multi stop comes in two models there'sthe 4-16x44 millimeter and then this one which is the 5-20x50millimeter they both have a 1 inch tube.
overall length on this highmagnification one is 13.
4 inches and weight is 23.
2 ounces so that makes thisheavier than that 2.
5-10x44 millimeter Bushnell Engage that wereviewed recently and it does make this a little bit heavy for a hunting stylescope but once you dig in and see what kind of things this thing can do youmight see if that weight is worth the trade.
the side parallax adjustment rollsall the way down to 25 yards which is handy for me because instead of puttingthis on a hunting rifle like most people will probably do with these I decided toput this on a 22 and see how it could perform in various situations and itreally did fantastically and this is a good time to point out just theprecision and the Japanese manufacturer of this thing it is just very wellpolished all around and every one of the dials on this thing just feels perfectthere are no steps in this thing tension is just right this thing feelsjust wonderful and even just the contour of the turrets themselves they're justbrilliantly laid out this whole thing it's not going to snag on anything ithas a somewhat conical shape on here and then when it comes to any of the otherturrets you can see that they're nicely rounded across the top you get tractionon some of the the sides here and everything just feels really highprecision as you might expect the glass on this scope is gorgeous resolution iswonderfully high contrast is great and you get excellent color reproduction italso has a really good eye relief considering the fact that this thingdoes magnify all the way up to 20x and it's not that difficult to get your eyein the right place behind this scope now that we have the baseline stats out ofthe way let's take a look at some of the weirdness that I was alluding to thisscope doesn't feature any numbers all the way around if you look at this fromthe outside instead what you have are these little colored tabs right here sowhen you spin this you get these stop points based on color and what's reallycool about this is of course these are going to align with some kind of droprelated to your cartridge but the neat thing is that you actually set theseyourself so right here here are the little replacement tabs that you can putin there so you get a whole bunch of colors you get yellow orange greens redsblues and then all you have to do is just pick where on this inside dialthose drop into so let's take a look at that once you remove this top screw thiscap comes right off and inside this cap there are some splines that made up withsome splines inside this and this you can kind of think of as the may be trueturret cap it's kind of an intermediary piece this whole thing just lifts rightout alright so there's the turret down therethis mates up with splines right on top of here and then you can set theposition of all these little colored markers you can see that thisintermediary piece includes numbers all the way around up to 18 MOA so all youhave to do is just make a ballistic chart and then put your drops in at thecorrect positions and one of the neat things is that if you go on Weaver'swebsite you can actually use their ballistic tool to create a speciallittle chart that goes into the objective lens cover on this scope itactually has a clear sleeve on it and this is a very nice objective lens coverthis thing is held in place by a magnet not by the usual little you know likeclaws or anything like that it's a very just high polished piece it's a piece ofaluminum and it has this neat sleeve here and then you can put in thisspecial chart that they'll create for you and if you print it in color it'sactually going to correspond to the colors that you place on this dial andone thing that the website states is that this is a 1/8 MOA per click turretcap on both the elevation and the windage and as far as I can tell no it'snot true it's actually one-quarter now one quick note on the positioning ofthese tabs you can only place these every two clicks you can't put themexactly everywhere you want so it's not going to be accurate to the click or tothe quarter MOA they're actually accurate to the half MOA so you might inyour chart need to make an indication okay yeah go to orange for 50 yards orwhatever and then give it one extra click the way that you zero this scopeis to take your shot and then adjust this actual turret right here it doesinclude a little coin slot you can use the rim of a piece of brass and then youjust crank this around until you get your zero just right then you take yourlittle intermediate piece right here that has all of your drop set the waythat you want you put that on top place the cap on screw this down and thenyou're ready to go I do have one word of caution if you're interested in this gothis pin right here that you see sticking into the side and the pin thatyou see inside this piece right here these two set up the zero stop there iskind of a fixed zero stop in here so that when you are attached right hereand you try to turn this dial past that zero point it is going to stop there isan issue with this though in that you only get one revolution of this capbefore it stops in the other direction so once you spin this thing all the wayaround it also comes to a stop this is probably not going to be an issue formost folks within reasonable ranges but if you want to be able to do extremelong-range work or anything like that you are going to be limited by thiscap there may be some things you can do like backing this screw out and removingit I did give that a try to see if I could open up some of the distance thereit may be locked hided or something I'm not sure I could not back that screw outor you could maybe shave that pin off on the inside of this but just know thatthe zero stop can be an issue if you are going to have some kind of distance thatgoes beyond eighteen MOA weaver didn't stop the innovation with this elevationturret the reticle on the inside pairs with this perfectly assuming that you'regoing to be doing all of your drops using that turret the reticle is free tojust do windage so you get this nice little target dot in the center which isit's a really nice balance of fine and being able to find this thing if you'rein kind of a a more dense environment and then it just provides windage whichis going to be true at your highest magnification at least on this 20x scopeat 20 X this is going to measure a true four MOA eight MOA and then all the wayout you have 12 MOA so do these differences really make a difference inmy testing yes this isn't just a unique scope on the market it's one thatactually makes a lot of sense it's really slick and for the first time whenI saw the stats on this thing and how it worked it just it justclicked it made a whole lot of sense I really enjoyed using this thing inmatches I could just set my elevation for the known distances that I wasdealing with and then all I had to do is just think about the windage in thatreticle I think that hunters especially those in open plains are out in theRockies places where you might have long distances to take a shot or reallyvariable ranges I think they would really enjoy this scope especially whenpaired with a rangefinder if there's one limitation of the reticle it's that youonly get windage for doing any kind of range finding and it doesn't include alot of the little intermediary hashes that you might get with certain othermilling types of scopes this will work and it'll definitely work better thanyour average duplex or a cross hair type scope but still you just don't have awhole ton of data for ranging so if you have a rangefinder I think that'd be agood match for this and as far as competitors go I think theymight find its feature set really interesting to the typical match scopefor silhouette rifle which is what I shot in is going to have an adjustableobjective out here and it's going to have big target turrets and all that andthis actually does kind of fit most of those bills in that you do have a sideparallax adjustment right there and you can set your drops right here it makesit really quick instead of having to think about what the actual numbers arefor your different ranges you just turn to that color and then it just worksright there and this is how it's going to work in silhouette matches anywaywhere you're really just gonna be dealing with wind when you finally takethe shot you're gonna have that turret set up for your range and then you justmess with wind the windage turret is a zero it and leave it sort of feature youjust twist this cap off right here and you get a small dial right here and thisis also one quarter MOA per click and all you do is just click this around andthen you leave it for whatever your 0 is and then you just close this thing backup you can remove this right here if you want to make sure to zero this out likeI actually have on here you just back this out with a torque screw pop thisoff Reesie row it just like you are used to with a lot of other scopethe eyepiece on this scope is the fast focus type so instead of having alocking ring like you used to get on the traditional hunting scope this one isalways loose and you can move it around and bite loose I mean it actually iskind of tight this isn't going to accidentally move around on you easilythere's a fair bit of tension going on herebut what I would recommend for anybody that has this type of eyepiece and I dothis on all my scopes just make a mark I've made a little kind of light mark upat the top to indicate that's my diopter adjustment just in case something doesget moved both of the multi stop models have that 4x zoom ratio that I talkedabout so this one goes from 5 up to 20 and since 20 is where everything is kindof true inside that reticle it's going to measure if it says 4 MOA then it'sgoing to measure 4 MOA but the neat thing is with that 4 X multiplier if youdo back off to 5x then anything that's 4 is going to measure 16 and so on so it'sgoing to make the math pretty easy think of the weaver grand slam multistop as a replacement for your very limited hunting style scopes or is aninteresting alternative to a target scope you easily get elevation out ofthe way using the turret up here and then you can just spend your time inthat reticle either addressing windage or leading a moving target you get thisnice flexible zoom range that makes the math kind of easy if you need to backoff just make sure before you buy this scope that your combination of cartridgeand the reasonable distance is at what you'll be hitting your targets is goingto be within that 18 MOA thanks for watching if you like thisvideo be sure to LIKE share and most importantly subscribe even if you
