It compares nicely to my SWFA SS 3-15x42 (excellent tracking, but dated reticle) and Leupold VX-R Patrol 3-9x40 (annoyingly thick reticle, but excellent FireDot illumination). For what it's worth, the SWFA is on my 6.5 Grendel AR, the VX-R Patrol is on my 5.56 Mock12, and the Ares BTR is on my 6.5 Creedmoor Aero M5. I have a lot of confidence in the capabilities of the Athlon scopes, and hope to try an ETR or Cronus at some point.
I love the Leopold scope for an ar. Have a few 1.5 x 4 on ars. Great lightweight and rugged scope good out to 400 or so yards (further with better eyes)
