EOTech 512 Review

The eotech 512 offers amazing quality and durability that any person would want.  Holographic weapons sights should be highly considered by any gun owner.  They offer extremely fast target acquisition, and sights like the eotech 512 sight are very accurate to boot.  Coupled with a weapon light, could prove to be a dangerous combination for night time hunting.

These holographic sights have been used by fighter pilots, military and police units for years and have been very effective.  They are tough even in the roughest conditions.

Types of Scopes for your Guns

To keep this post simple I will just describe a couple different types of scopes very broadly, but with enough detail you will know what the basic ideas of these scopes are. You can find links to each of these and in those links I will get a lot more detailed and involved in each different type of scope.

Just to clear some rumors, so everyone knows just because you put a scope on your gun doesn’t mean that your bullet will hit in the exact same place every single time. There are limits to ammunition, shooter, etc. It is impossible to put every single bullet into the exact same hole. There are just to many variables. However a scope will help you to provide a much more accurate shot and get a lot closer to that goal. Let’s face it, that is what everyone wants to do. Read the rest of this entry →

Nikon M-223


The Nikon m223 scope is among one of the increasingly popular specialized scopes.  It has been designed specifically for
the AR-15 platform, and provides shooters with not only long range accuracy but very fast target-acquisition, and also an option for short to medium range tactical situations.  It has been designed with 3 different reticles to help accomplish this.

These types of scopes are designed for use with .223 round with 55 gr. polymertipped bullet at 3240 fps.  Now if you buy the Nikon M223, this is not the only round you can ever use with it, but it is the round that is ballistically-matched to the scopes for accuracy out to 600 yards with no other calculations.  Nikon does offer a program on their website and also apps for i-phone/i-pad and android apps, that will do all calculations for you.  I won’t go into all the details in this post but here is the link for their Spot On program.
