    This PSE TAC Elite crossbow review just came in from our customer Wiley in Louisiana.

    Wiley also said this about the Hawke XB 30 Crossbow Scope that we sell.

    That is the advantage of XB 30. However, I have found XB 30 needs higher magnification for longer distances than XB 30 can provide when it is adjusted for TAC 15 arrow speeds around 400fps.

    To tune TAC 15 and sort arrows into groups you really need a 8X scope when shooting at 100-yards. The XB 30 scope would need at least a doubling, if not tripling, of its over all magnification, being velocity adjustment changes the scopes power.

    Actually, all of my own TAC shooting over the years has been with 3 power. I have achieved many, many 2 and 3 inch groups at 100 yards and 3 power.

    x2,

    1 inch to 1 1/2 inch groups consistently at 76 yds for me, 3 power works well for hunting, yea if you were only shooting paper an 6x18 power would be great:D, of coarse this is a crossbow

    I believe with a 6x to 8x scope, a modified TAC 15, and using custom arrows; the combination can shoot better than 2 & 3 inch groups at 100 yards. The Hawke XB30 is great scope for hunting, but XB30 bottom reticle when set for 90-yards more than covers bulls-eye making precise aiming an estimation.
