What new Xbow scope will hold up?
Well, it happened again. Less than a week since I resighted the Xbow it went out, not so much that it would have caused a lost, wounded deer, but enough (2" high/2" right) that I figure it's time....again. Each time I offload, I do it from a steady rest into my block target @ 20 yds. This way, I monitor the POI of the crosshair.
This scope is a Nikon Bolt with the little circles for each 20 yds. I sight it, it groups, within a week it's out of zero. I resighted again after the morning hunt, and it was once again 5 clicks right/5clicks left. This can't continue.
We have a bunch of guys who use Xbows on here, and I'm sure some of you have been up against the problem, so.... which brand scope is up to the task of maintaining zero on a crossbow? Or have I had the answer all along with my choice of Leupold for rifle and slug gun scopes, but wasn't bright enough to carry it over to my bowhunting?
Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
