I have been doing some scope swapping between my .338rum and .308 as my ongoing test for both scopes .

I put the XOTIC on my .308 Winchester stealth and took it to the range for some testing.

I shot two 3 shot groups at 100 yds that were .707” and .818” witch is about typical of this gun no matter what scope is on it.

I moved the target out to 500yds, dialed the XOTIC up 38 clicks and left 12 clicks for wind and shot a 3 shot group that was 5.37”but was a little low. I dialed up to 41 clicks and gave it 10clicks for wind and shot a nice .244” 3 shot group ay 500yds.

The XOTIC has done very good during my testing but I have not tested it on the .50 yet.

I got a pic late after shooting.

I have the scope mounted with a base I made and XTR medium rings.It is slanted so far forward that the elevation dial

is almost bottomed out.

Longbow 308

I have been experimenting with a couple different paint jobs on my rifles and I think I have found one that I like on my .300WSM for now any way . I have been trying to blend the scale pattern with other patterns and then fade them into each other with an over spray or what I call a light frosting of other camouflage paints.

I have found the scale pattern its self to draw attention to it up close because people think it is a snake or some kind of animal.

This is the new paint and it is kind of ugly but the humans ( friends and family )I have tested it on had a lot harder time identifying it because it doesn’t really relate to anything that draws their attention other than dirt or maybe an odd looking stick.

Even though I still use the scale pattern it is a lot more subtle.
