    Spent a couple hours at the range this afternoon re-sighting in the AR-15 with my new XOTIC scope.

    Overall I was very impressed with the scope, it’s optical clarity, operation and function.

    My first shot landed exactly 6 1/4 inches right and 6 inches low. My second shot was almost touching the first shot, but was 6 3/8 inches right and 6 inches low. I moved the elevation knob 24 clicks high and 25 clicks to the left. My third shot was dead on in the X. Excellent tracking and was dead nuts on.

    I then shot for group which was 5 shots in .7 inch @ 100 which is pretty standard for my rifle. At 14 power, the cross hairs were a bit thick for my liking, at 10X they were perfect for me.

    I then shot 5, 5-shot groups. The first group was dead on center of the target, then moving the turrets 6 moa right, then 6 up, then 6 left, then 6 down. Each group moved 6 inches in the direction I moved it and tracked perfectly. All groups were under an inch.

    Not a bad day at the range and I really liked the scope for the first day at the range with many more to come.

    Interested in hearing from some of the other new XOTIC users.
