I'd like to try one on my comp gun I run a strike eagle 1-8 right now but I have the Burris XTR II 5-25 on my long range rig and it's much better glass than the strike eagle.

I'd have to look but pretty sure they're only MOA. If they come in MIL I would have gotten MIL

Because you know better. grin

The reticle, in the Strike Eagle is a BDC, that is my only turn-off. Still, I have recommended the 1-8X Strike Eagle to several friends on a budget, and told them to confirm or deny the reticle holds. All of them have been very happy with the optic, especially for the price they paid. Stepping up to a Burris is a significant improvement in features, and it is also a significant price difference.

Yea the reticle holds from 15 yards to 200 yards in the carbine match. 25 yard sight in and just hold center dot on target and you're good to go with federal 55gr FMJ.

Last one I did I shot at targets at 15 yards and then went out to 200 on Clay's and hit it holding same point of aim.

50 yard zero is often a 200 yard zero. The other holds would be coyote hits out to 400+ yards. It would just take some practice.

Hell it's been a while but I'm pretty sure since the dot is so big it's a 25 yard zero with the strike eagle.

More to do with your sight off-set, for your particular ring height.

Rotated 90° again bang




Just now took a break from work, and did a little carbine/pure holds/barricade training. SS 1-6X did just fine at 300 to 500 yards, with no dialing (though I know it will track). They really did a great job on that optic!

6X and 8X will you a ways out there. 1X on the bottom end is the only way to fly!
