Hey guys,

Thinking about getting the new EOTech 557 for .223.  I know that it is set up for an M4 with 62 gr. ammo.  Here is my question, how closely would the Wolf brand 62 gr. ammo track along with the BDC in the sight?  Would it be close enough for Minute-of-Plate?  Also looking at the 4x magnifier for it.  Any personal use of the scope out there?  Thanks.

If I could find something I liked that met everything I was looking for I wouldn't hesitate to get a 1-4x.

BDC (not caliber specific preferably)
FFP
Clear glass
Durable
And won't completely kill my wallet

Thanks for the help though sir.  Opened a new line of thinking for me.

you can't get a BDC that isn't caliber specific to some degree, its an oxymoron. in this price range NF 1x4, IOR 1.5, Leo 1.5x6 the magnifier on the eo does not give the same image quality at the same power these optics will get you
