Has anyone tested this?

I do have a sweet 22 and it is good enough for the 10-22 plinking. Quite accurate.

I have a SS on my varmiter, but is this worth a try?

I would say no. They aren't going to be clearer or track better any than the SS.

If your looking at them as a way to figure out drop those turrets wont be right on. Everything changes drop so you need to shoot the ammo you will be shooting out of your gun out to whatever distance to figure out the actual drop. They will get you close but nowhere near what you, yourself could figure out. Just going by bullet weight like these are calibrated wont be exact.

 

But You could always try and let us all know how they work out...

 

It would be decent as a first scope on a .223 but I would say a definate step down from the Super Sniper you have now.

The Sweet 223 is going to differ from the 17 and 22, in that there are various weight bullets available, which will affect trajectory and therefore, a single turret calibrate for one weight bullet, will not work for all weights.  The 17HMR has one weight bullet, 17 grains, with one charge and therefore calibration is simpler.  Now, it is a BSA, not the best scope maker in the world, but I just switched out a cheap Tasco on my Savage 17HMR, with witch I could hit quarters all day long at 100 yards, with the Sweet 17, but have not shot the rifle yet.  So will see.  I will say, the optics are bright and clear up to 11 power and at max., 12x they diminish only by a slight margin.  The scope was inexpensive and on a non-recoiling rifle, so to speak, I think it should hold up fine and I was curious how accurate the calibrated turrets would be.  I will let you know.
