Re: PSE TAC 15 crossbow - first range outing

Hi Len - thanks for update on bag target / the Morrell does look like the best fit. - I am looking at two new scopes that are just comming out - this one: HHA Sports Optimizer Speed Dial Sighting System - which allows you to dial the distance to target and Red Hot™ Pin Point Dial-A-Distance Illuminated Crossbow Scope. Both sell for about $300. Both made for crossbows. These make sense if truly accurate as claim - check these out and let me know what you think - for white tail deer hunting I am hoping these make arrow distance drop less guessing! Cost of arrows are pricey but if hold up to stress of this cross bow speed - worth the cost! My cross bow arrives Wednesday - now all I need is a scope that works for hunting! Will use my Ten Point Scope until decide on best scope for PSE TAC 15i. THANKS

Re: PSE TAC 15 crossbow - first range outing

HHA is located one hour from my house. I will call them tomorrow and maybe go visit them this week. I want a scope system with enough moa to go from about 30 yards out to 110 or so. I am not quite finished creating my drop table so I can't say exactly how many MOA that is but it appears to be in the range of 69 moa from 50 yards to 100 yards.

The HHA scope looks promising - thanks let me know what you think of this particular scope and its capability for reducing guess of drop - probably go by Bass pro nad look at this week - - we have a Bass Pro in Baton Rouge

sorry this is not a scope - it attaches to scope and mount
just add to existing scope

Re: PSE TAC 15 crossbow - first range outing

I did a rough drop test this morning at the range. It needs to be verified again in the field. But -- we all need to know what we are dealing with in total moa drop out to, say, 120 yards to know what our scope needs may be.

The Accupoint scope ($140) offered by PSE is what I have been using. PSE shopped pretty hard to find one that wan't too expensive for their market, our market is used to spending much more. And PSE understood the need for an airgun type of recoil tolerance and the need for gobs of vertical capacity. The parallax is decent. I found I needed only 2 positions on the dial to handle everything out to 100 yards. Up to 40(?) yards I set mine at 40, from there out to 100 I set mine to 90.Otherwise I leave it alone as I change distance. Yours could be different.

This one has 6 mildots above and below, making there 13 points to work with. At 9 power, that is 41 moa, not enough, but at 3 power it is 123 moa, just enough.

Thanks Len : for tests and chart

mine comes in this week - start testing mine at hunting camp

I ordered that scope last week with cross bow - But I am curious concerning HHA's elevation adjusting device addition to scope mount. Probably buy one just to try out -
Thanks

Re: PSE TAC 15 crossbow - first range outing

I checked my drop table (above) this morning at the range. I got as far as dot #10 and my 2 arrows were 1.5 inches low and 1.6 inches apart.

So the chart data is verified.

I may go out to 121 yards tomorrow.
