This is our in depth review of the Bushnell AR/223 1-4x24 Optic with the BTR-1 first focal plane reticle. The Bushnell AR/223 line is an entry level optic that can suit multiple roles and has a bullet drop compensation reticle meant for AR-15 rifles. With the Bullet drop compensation and maximum magnification of 4 power it is very well suited for use of 300 yards or closer. In this video we have it mounted on a Colt Canada Integrated Upper Receiver (IUR) 15.7" AR-15 rifle. In the shooting portions of the review we use a High Speed Gear Battlebelt with High Speed Gear magazine tacos.
