REVIEW BY: E.G. Chrestman Thursday, January 19, 2017
I purchased a BSA Sweet 223 about 2009 or 2010. So far it has performed great on my AR 15. I have been able to put 3-5 shot groups the size of a nickel.

Great scopes, have several my favorite is sweet 22 (have 223 & 270) it consistently shoots quarter size groups at 100 yards. The warranty is good as well have broken one and lost parts easy to get. Like to have more turret options on 22 & 223.

I have several BSA Scopes and like them all but why doesn't BSA list the type of recticle this scope has? It's important information that most people want to know before purchasing a scope.

I have one of these Sweet .223's on a Savage .22-250. After 5 rounds of zeroing, I was putting shots in a 1" group at 100 yds. Great scope for the money. Just bought another one for my AR. haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I'm sure the results will be great. Fine product..

I've put mine on a flat-top DPMS in a cantilever mount. Spot on at 100 yards and with just a few clicks on the turret I've drilled groundhogs out at 400+ yards. VERY impressed with this scope, clean optics and easy to zero. I would recommend it to anyone using .223/5.56.

My scope was on a gun when I bought it. I zeroed it and then I changed ammo and the zero was off. I tried a 4x Weaver on the same gun and it held zero all at 100yds. Would ammo affect zero that much? Is there a warranty for a second hand scope?

There is a flaw with the trajectory compensation. They did the math wrong; Shoots 20 feet high at 400 yds.
REVIEW BY: HOWA Friday, December 31, 2010
The company made an error with the bullet trajectory compensation drum. They measured the bullet drop for 200, 300, and 400 at 100 yards. This makes the bullet hit way high above your target. If you by one the correct formula is distance/100*.25= click value, then (hears where they messed up) You take the trajectory drop at the distance and devide by the click value. Example: 300/100*.25=.75 11.1/.75=14.8 so about 15 clicks will do the trick at 300 yds. Other than that the scope workes fine.

Have this scope mounted to a HOWA 1500 - fine set up holds zero, can put 5 rounds pretty much through the same hole @ 200yds with a slight variation. I do alot of hunting and travel via the airlines even after all the banging and throwing about my case no doubt gets put through from the baggage guys it maintains zero, a quick check and im ready to persue my quarry.
REVIEW BY: Sgt Abn Tuesday, July 27, 2010
My only complaint is there is no cam for a 45 grain bullet! Come on BSA! Make one and sell it as a separate accessory - you will sell many of them! The 45 grain ammo is frequently the cheaper 223 ammo and that is why so many of us buy it.
REVIEW BY: JD Friday, July 23, 2010
This scope on my REM 700 SPS Tac takes out a soup can @ 475yrds. Very good clarity and easy adjustment for both elevation and windage. Very strong scope and weather proof. I will be putting a BSA on my REM 700 XCR LRT 308 ASAP.
REVIEW BY: Greg M. Sunday, March 14, 2010
Got my scope mounted up on my AR using a RRA hi-rise mount and 55gr FMJ BT. The Scope took some time to get on paper then dialed in. Once dialed in I locked down the turret and dialed in 20 yds.. was about 3-4 inches high at 200, set to about 160/180 ish and was dead on nuts. Descent scope for the money.

I just installed the Sweet 223 on my Ruger Mini-14. I'm very happy with the combination. Mounting the scope went very well. Zeroing went well with the first shots requiring very minor corrections. The Sweet 223 is a very quality scope at a competative price.
REVIEW BY: wildcard 223 Sunday, November 29, 2009
I love this scope. Works great'and the people at bsa stand behind there product.Had a problem with one of my adjustmemts and they sent me a new scope in less than 10 days thanks w/c223
REVIEW BY: dragonslayer Tuesday, November 10, 2009
I installed the Sweet 223 on my new RUGER ULTRA LIGHT HAWKEYE 223. What a combination. I'm very impressed in the results i have seen with this package. The BSA is so clear at close and far (300) plus yards. I can group 5 shots at 100 yards and cover them with a quarter. Can't wait to start thinning out the coyote herd. Excellent product BSA keep up the great products.

REVIEW BY: lwl Monday, March 16, 2009
I love this scope. I only wish it had turrets for a 40 or 45 grain bullet weight.
REVIEW BY: Saturday, March 14, 2009
