New for 2021: Aimpoint Comp M5B Compensating Red Dot Sight

Everything we love about Aimpoint optics, with even more capabilities.

The Aimpoint CompM5b is a ballistic compensating red dot optic which allows the user to quickly adjust the position of the two MOA red dot based on target distance and wind conditions.

Previously only available for professional uses, the Aimpoint CompM5b is now open commercially for hunters and shooters.

In the above video as part of the SHOT Show New Product Premiere, Aimpoint’s Andrea Cerwinske and Thane Smith talks with Guns & Ammo's Joe Kurtenbach about what CompM5b users might expect.

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
