  2. Scott Holloway on October 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Great video I would like to buy one of every make and try them out, right now my favorite scope is the Burris XTR ii love the 34

  3. Tracey Matula on October 28, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Have you ever reviewed sniper precision optics ? If not they make some low budget FFP scopes, I know of several people that have liked them but I would be very interested to get your opinion on them.

  5. Brian Amuro on October 28, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Hi, I was just wondering what scope is good for a.177 Gamo pellet pellet rifle?

  6. Aaron Blanco on October 28, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Will you do a review on the Monstrum tactical G3 6-24

  7. Dennis Snider on October 28, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    I have a RPR 300prc I been saving but I still can’t make up my mind on a scope but I really like the Tremor reticles

  8. Colby Odell on October 28, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Kicking ass keep it up

  9. James Dingle on October 28, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Absolutely the best scope reviews to be found anywhere.

  10. juan mejia on October 28, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Gracias cíclope por sus conocimientos en visores, saludes desde Honduras, América Central.

  11. BLACKHEAT1028 on October 28, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Joe how about a little series on the scopes that are advertised on Instagram, are they as good as they say?

  12. James Blade on October 28, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Definitely interested to see a review on Crimson Trace CTL-5324. I can pick up one currently for $800. Your thoughts, opinions? Anyone commenting have experience with this optic?

  13. Kaban Chan on October 28, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    your sir ern my subscribe with that intro

  14. Christopher T. Noll, CSP, CPP on October 28, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Love your channel and your reviews. Because of you I picked up a Bushnell Engage for a steal at Midway. Have you done a review on the Bushnell Elite DMR II? I couldn’t find it. They are way cheap right now at Midway.

  15. jeff chamberlin on October 28, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Great show, great info.

  16. Brad Schaeffer on October 28, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    I’m hunting elk in Wyoming this fall with a lightweight 28 Nosler. Definitely want SFP and top limit of magnification between 18 – 25. MOA reticle preferred but I’ll dial distance with turrets and rarely use hash marks on reticle. Budget $500-$1500. If you have to choose one scope to fit this which would it be?

  17. Jason Paul on October 28, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    I picked up the US Optics TS20X after watching a ton of reviews of yours. I honestly couldn’t be happier with it and most of the guys who get behind it are really impressed with the build and glass quality. I’m looking for another scope for ELR and watching some more reviews of yours.

  18. L. Roberts on October 28, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Love your videos, laugh my ass off at your hate mail videos. Keep the reviews coming, I always look for reviews from you, don’t always use your advise cause I’m poor as fuck but hell your doing a great job. Shout out from Southeast Texas. Keep up the great work!

  19. Matt Cheney on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Love your videos, keep up the great work. Have you reviewed the vortex lht or the tract toric hunting scopes? I’m torn between one of these and the updated Zeiss v4. Thanks again for all your work!

  20. Jonathan boykin on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    If you don’t mind can you give me top 5 of the best scopes if money isn’t an issue not saying I have alot of money just like to have quality stuff when I do spend my money. thanks

  21. jackle842000 on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Swfa ss hd vs swfa ss vs ultrlight. Assuming you’re carrying your rifle a couple miles hunting is it wise to go ultralight if you’d still like to take 600: yard shots and shots close to dusk and dawn or are the optics on the others that much better and worth the weight and which would you recommend? Don’t see an option for both and i have no place to look through swfa scopes period so going in blind. Don’t see any comparisons between three models side by side anywhere. Hoping you can shed some light on the subject. Thanks for the videos!

  22. Rick Golden on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Every time I start looking at a new scope I jump on here first to see if Joe has reviewed it

  23. Gerald Gonzalez on October 28, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Great videos, could you make a recommendation for a hunting rifle 300win mag. I’m going to reference my daughter I’m trying to ball on a budget, looking for a first orsecond focal plain,moa, illumination minimum 12x for around $500 oh and a good set of rings.

  24. Jarek L on October 28, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Hi Joe. As always very clear information. I’m pretty new to all this hunting-sighting-etc stuff and learning from each video. I’m guessing these scopes are mainly for rifles. Can it be used for crossbow as well or is the magnification to high (with a crossbow, you usually are no more than 40 yards from your target) ? Thanks in advance for this clarification. Cheers!

  25. None of Your business on October 28, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Just won a Browning X Bolt Long range Hunter in 7mm REM Mag… and just bought a black hound 6x24x50 to go on top of it.

  26. Brian Christy on October 28, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Try March scopes

  27. Charles Billue on October 28, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    I know that you really like the arken scopes. i bought the sh4 4-16×50. it broke the second time i used it. I sent back for warranty. have not heard anything for n2 weeks. they will not respond to any attempts to contact them… I am thinking that I just threw away my money. I am looking for a different scope that I can use. I will not buy another arken anything.

  28. John Brubaker on October 28, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    What is your best recommendation for a scope under the 500 doller range with locking turrants? Also what’s the best scope under 500 that’s suited for a 308 with bdc?

  29. mario chavez on October 28, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    I want to buy a leupold 3i lrp 6.5-20 ×50. Is that a good buy? I saw it online at Bass Pro for 800 bucks. It is the ffp one with the TMR reticle. They used to be one thousand but it’s being discontinued can I do better for 800 bucks?

  30. Tim Everett on October 28, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Zeiss HD5 5-25×50 KILLER SCOPE FOR UNDER $1000.00

  31. Keith Osborne on October 28, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Hey, Joe! Great to see you again, brother!

  32. Jon Baniak on October 28, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Could you please tell me where Arken and Athlon scopes are made? I want to buy one but not if they are stamped “Made in China.” Thanks for a great review!

  33. Chris Wehlage on October 28, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Joe have you tested the Athlon Ares Etr scope

  34. Ricky rocky on October 28, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Nice yomp eyes What’s going on with primers everyone I know has given up on reloading and sold their equipment tired of the primers game playing

  35. Billy Fowler on October 28, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I tried one of the US optics that’s in this review. It was terrible, could not get the target and reticle in focus at the same time without a lot of parallax. If you dialed out the parallax, then it was out of focus.

  36. Colby Odell on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Do you have a review of just 5x25x50 scopes. Would you be interested in doing one ??

  37. Bobby Dillard on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    I love my NF NX8 4-32 ya it’s expensive but it’s worth it to me

  38. Mike K on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Thanks for your awesome and honest reviews sir. I’m considering either a Leupold VX Freedom 4-12x 40mm Tri-MOA reticle with custom CDS Turret caps available, or a Bushnell Engage 4-12x 40 with deploy MOA reticle. I really love the fact that the Bushnell at approx $200 less also has a parallax side turret while the Leupold VX Freedom does not. Looking to mount to a Win Mod 70 in .270 Win for paper target shooting 50-300 yards primarily. Just afraid the Bushnell Engage at $200 less might be crap compared to the Leupold VX Freedom? Please help me Joe from making a regrettable purchase! I really don’t want to mount a pigs ear on my silk purse! Thank you sir, and keep up the fantastic scope reviews. ✌️😎👍

  39. Alex LLC on October 28, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Which is better Bushnell Match Pro 6-24×50 or ARKEN SH-4 Gen II 6-24×50 ?

  40. Alex Feist on October 28, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Any suggestions for a scope for someone with bad astigmatism?

  41. Doug Dishler on October 28, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    I listened to your pod cast !! Cracking up man got me looking for Easter eggs lol great shit man !!!!

  42. Elijah Monn on October 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Why is Leupold off this list? American made. And a warranty second to none. I’m a fan. I’ve never had a Leupold I haven’t liked. Cheers

  43. Thinking Impaired on October 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I always enjoy your videos, thank you! I appreciate the fact that you don’t forget to mention some affordable scopes for people who spend half their lives paying taxes, such as california residents.

  44. Tom Hinds on October 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Have you reviewed the Sig Sauer Whiskey 5 scope.

  45. Mac on October 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    What happend to the Helix FFP scope?

  46. Dan Lindeke on October 28, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Favorite rifle/scope in Piney north woods:Remington 742 30-06 with see thru mount and Weaver 4 power. That or a 30-30.!

  47. Richard Fisher on October 28, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Love your videos,! How about hawke scopes? Any thoughts??

  48. jeejay98 on October 28, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    I know this video has been a while but this Monstrum G3 6-24×50 is a killer deal to pass-on to. I hope someday you will review it.

  49. Eric B. on October 28, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    WHERE is the excellent SIG Sierra6 BDX 3 – 18 x 44? This new scope is a TECH WIZARD when used with a SIG BDX monocular or binocular rangefinder and just a damn good scope on its own.
    Your reviews are very good and the Sierra6 BDX deserves one.

  50. Eric Angutiqjuaq on October 28, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Great review 👍
    I am a simple man from the land of the inuit and I only use 3-9×40 scopes for my rifles 😅
