Can anyone recommend a really good 5.7x28 ballistics scope?

Post by 5dot7guns » 04 Mar 2015, 00:20

My guess is that there are a number of long-time, serious shooters that have tried several ballistic scopes on their PS90. I have only tried an AIM scope, but it is a basic cross-hair, without any ballistic markings. Rather than referring to a tablet or chart, it would be nice to get a scope with the trajectory gradients marked on the elevation line that are designed for the 5.7x28 "197" ammo. Anyone got any advice?

Never heard of such a thing for the 5.7, and ballistic reticles (sp?) are rarely correct for your rifle and your ammo lot. I'd get a nice mil/mil optic from Vortex or somebody and put that on there. Add flip up caps, put your dope card in one of them, and you'll be able to make longer shots.

You could try something like this scope. You will need to experiment with you load to match the ballistics dot and distance.

As far as a scope I can't help but I do have an Eotech 412 that works very,very well with my PS90 and a big FOV.

For me the measurement from center of the barrel limits my choices. Currently, I use a FNH PS90/P90 Fiber-Optic Sight they are are hard to find and rather expensive. Although, I've tried just about everything that I could stick on the FNH M1913 USG Rail, the detected FN Optic works great for me. I am planing to buy a Vortex RAZOR RED DOT — 3 MOA soon :)

I'm using a eotech 553 on mine and it's pretty amazing. :D
My ps90 is strictly for two legged zombies so no scope needed.

I would go with the Aimpoint T-2 for all around, RMR for CQB work only. Take a look at my mounts and see what you think. http://dmachineri.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

What is your application?

At what distances?

0-400m?

Pretty old thread from a guy with 9 posts, he's probably hasta la pasta by now.

I wish my Vortex SPARC II red dot had a circle/dot reticle. Then I'd have two aiming points, one for 5 - 15 yards and one for 50 - 100 yards. They would at least get me in the ballpark.

Most "Ballistic Reticles" lie!

This is B/C they are made with ONE load at ONE altitude and ONE temperature. Change any of those very much and the "ballistic reticle" lies to you.
