Well I finally got a little time to get out and try a box test with the Clearidge ultra XP5 4.5x22.5. I'd like to tell you it was a perfect day to be at the range, but I'd be lying. Temp at 24 and winds blowing from the right at 10-15 mph made for a pretty raw day. Wind also made my cheapo portable shooting bench not so stable to shoot from. Prior to this test I had been shooting off the ground with a bipod and wanted to do the test that way, but vegitation prevented me from seeing the bottom half of the target.
Any way here's what I did:
Point of aim remained center bull throughout test,
All adjustments are moa,
Target is in 1" grid 12x12.
Ammo was my reloads in virgin brass (minimal prep, flash hole deburred, chamfered, loaded)
Shot 1 dialed up 5.75(6.02") and Right 5.75
Shot 2 dialed down 11.5(12.04")
Shot 3 dialed up 11.5 and left 11.5
Shot 4 dialed down 11.5
Shot 5 returned to zero
Repeated this sequence 3 times, except for shot 4 & 5 the last time around, out of ammo:(
I didn't confirm zero the first shot and probably should have, point of impact seems to be a little higher off the bench than the bipod. Also opted to shoot the corners of the grid instead of the 5 bulls to get more adjustment tested.
I can't say for certain but I suspect this one adjusts a little more that 1/4 moa per click , however it seems to do so in a consistent manner. Also I'm just an average hunter not a bench rest shooter and that could be a large part of the results. I have to confess given the weather conditions and my limited ability I'm pretty darned pleased with this scope for the price.
