I've been trying to get that dialed in but with a wandering zero, kinda pointless to get a range report. So the next visit ill get it zeroed again. And i haven't really shot much with the iron sights yet, gonna change out for a flip up front sight so waiting for that next too
Wait a minute...you were kicking my butt over not ordering the Bushnell and giving me grief when I had trouble with my first not adjusting...but now you admit your Bush was wandering off? (Yeah. That's going in Freudian slips.)

OK so changed out the Bushnell Red dot and went with the EOTech 512. I believe this has been a better choice.

VERY nice. Sadly, I'm going to have to pull mine off. The hillbillies that run the local range seem to believe an RDS is a laser, and will no longer let me shoot longer than 25 yards with my PA attached, so I'm going to irons until I find a scope I like. Isn't that Eotech like ten bucks more than the Bushnell?
