I'm looking at scopes for my AR 150. Has anyone tried the Super Sniper 20X. Do you think it will hold up?

I also have a 10, am gearing up to get a 16 for another project. Kirby (fiftydriver) suggested the SS to me so I bought one. It is an incredible scope! I wish I had one on every rifle I own. I think it will hold up as well as anything out there!

I've got two of the 10X ones. One is mounted on a .308, the other was and soon will be again, mounted on a 300 WM. Both have performed very well. I've beat the crap out of them and they keep their zero.
I have a friend who has the 20X model and he really likes it also.
For the $300 you pay for them they are a steal. I would say they are equal to any $600-$800 scope on the market.
More MOAs then most anything up to the Nightforce scopes and stout as hell. May not compete with the very top end scopes as far as clarity and brightness but they are as good as many much higher priced scopes in these areas and much stronger and much more adjustment as well.
Remember though, they are $300 scopes. there are no frills here, just a working mans scope.
I have owned several. Used them on everything from 22-250s up to 50 BMGs and never had a problem with them. Only problem I sell them as soon as a customer shoots one of my rifles with them on it. I have played with all three powers and personally feel the 16x is the best compromise for me for long range shooting. At times mirage will raise hell with a 20x and at other times I like a bit more glass then a 10x. 16x is a good mix for me.
I will get more very soon.
