I was fortunate to test drive the 10x SS.  I was delivered to my office and then I was gone out west for a few weeks.  This past Sunday I was able to take it to the range for a test run.  Here is a few pics of the scope on my DPMS.





Sunday was 77 degree and windy.  Constant wind was from the SSE at 15-20 with gust to 30+.  This particular angle is bad due it is almost perpendicular to the range, but it blows most of the time here in SD so it ain't nothing new.

Here is the entire target.



Starting off in the center to confirm that it was centered (bore sighted and fired 10 rounds previous weekend).  The holes with a 1 over top of them were the first 4 shots, the 2 with yellow around them and the #2 are the returns from the box test.  Groups are not the best, but have not done any load development or trigger work yet.  Rounds were Hornady 40gr.  As you can see, tracking was great.  I moved 24 clicks or 6 inches and made the rotation 5x.  Scope tracked perfectly, but shooting left some to be desired.



Here is the top left target.  Included in this area are 4 rounds fired at 200yds.  The box test was run at 100yrds.   Interestingly the 5 rounds for the box test measured the same as the 4 rounds at 200yrds. 



Top right. 



Bottom right.



Bottom left.  This was the best group at 1.25"  The holes with orange are 9 rounds shot as quick as I could get back on target at 200yds.  3.25 isn't great, but I don't normally shoot that way.  P-dogs just haven't been that thick before.




The scope itself was great.  The only problem I had with it were the windage knob was loose which was easily tightened by an allen wrench.  For the box test, I rezeroed the knobs and it worked great.  Each click had a possitive feel.  The glass was very good.  Did not do any low light testing of the optics.  Slight distorsion around the edges, but it was minimal and not distracting while shooting.  All in all, a great scope.

The original 10x Super Sniiper is an awesome value and tough as nails.

That .204 is a good PD round. It is so fast that the Dakota wind is not much problem.
