No rifle scopes are made to absorb shock toward the back. Crossbow towards front. I am not sure you could sight it in without distances dots.

Vibration is the problem. Same reason air guns wreck scopes that aren't purpose-built for them.

That said, I've heard of people using pricier rifle scopes for this purpose successfully, but I also know of a lot of people using Excalibur scopes and the like and doing just as well.

Have had a 2x7 leupold on our Xbow for 4 yr. I have seen scopes not hold up on friends xbows and a red dot get ruined but so far good with the leupold.
