First Look ?- Cronus Tactical Spotting Scope by Athlon Optics

Thank you. For your review on Snipers Hide.

Original Post:

I have had the opportunity to work with a new Athlon product, their Cronus Tactical Spotting Scope that has a FFP reticle. This is a new straight thru scope in 7-42X60 using their top of the line Cronus ED glass. Is right at 14 inches long and weighs 46 ounces so readily back packable. Has fittings for picatinny rails on the top and both sides to mount a red dot for quick target acquisition, or a small rangefinder – or both? Magnification and focus knobs are conveniently located by the ocular.

Have had it out several times and the resolution like many of their scopes is superb. In good conditions I easily observed impacts on steel out to a mile, and think this would work for 2 km or more. In the past I have used a Optolyth 100, Cronus 60, and Ares 14-45 on our range that goes out to 1600 yards. My favorite has been the Ares because of size and weigh, and optically I did not feel I was giving up that much to the Optolyth100 or Cronus 60. Side by side on a few occasions I have to give the nod to the new Cronus Tactical Optics over the Ares.

Reticle is first focal plane and is a “T” shape with the upper part of the FOV clear for observation. There is 10 mils on each side of the center in 0.2 mil increments and the base of the T is 8 mils in similar subtensions. One tenth mil subtensions are displayed between the 5 and 6 mil hashmarks for more fine resolution. Besides the reticulated “T” there are also stadia lines that allow for ranging objects 12″. 18″, 30″ or the torso or full height of a person from 300 to 1000 yards. These allow quick ranging without the need to do the math to convert mils to distance. Testing these on 18″ gongs at 750, 850, 950 and 1089 yards got me in range +/-15 yards by using the stadia on either side of the distances listed. Anyway close enough if I did not have a LRF that I could spot my first shot and make a quick followup shot corrected by the splash seen on reticle.

The scope is mounted on a beefy carbon fiber Night Stalker Pro tripod by Night googles and the entire setup, tripod tripod head and scope will run you somewhere around $1500.

The Athlon Tactical is going to be around $1000 and should hit the market in a month or so – perhaps Frostyline can correct me on these final details.

Dirk – Ares BTR Riflescope: “I was immediately surprised by the heft of it. Its built like a tank!”

From Dirk Vandervaart:

“I got an ARES BTR riflescope after much research, but with a little trepidation never having seen or handled one. Back in my government days I had SB, UO and NF riflescopes. When my Ares riflescope arrived I was immediately surprised by the heft of it. Its built like a tank. Contrary to many reviews, I found the riflescope turret clicks to be audible and tactile, albeit a bit looser than the really expensive glass. The images are incredibly bright and clear and everything about this scope seems really well thought out.

I haven’t had much time behind the gun with it yet but I’m sure its gonna be awesome! I’ll report further. Now that its on the gun, I’m itching to go shoot! Great product and I really hope it does what I think it can do.”

Brendon says: “Some of the Best Optics I Have Used”

I Recently purchased my second Athlon riflescope and it’s the second of many to come. Some of the best optics I have used. I have a Talos 4-14x 44 riflescope on my 17hmr and a Argos 6-24×50 riflescope on my 6.5 Creedmoor budget build and they are awesome! Better than any vortex I’ve looked through or used. I’m looking forward to 2 more scopes one for my .308 and another for my RPR, Looking at the Helos BTR riflescope and Ares BTR Riflescope possibly. Also just ordered my Ares spotting scope. Thanks for making World class optics that the working Joe can afford!

Randy: Helos BTR Rifle Scope is “Super Clear & Easy to Use & Adjust”

Rifle Scope
Randy of Utah:
I love my Helos BTR Rifle Scope, so far nothing but greatness. It is super clear and easy to use and adjust. The knobs are crisp to turn and the focus is phenomenal. I have not been able to use the full aspect of the scope but it holds true on my Remington 700 Long Range 300 Ultra Mag. It has so far held up to the brutal beating that the gun dishes out.
The other great part about these Athlon rifle scopes are the fact that they are very comparable if not better than you other name brand optics but at a fraction of the cost.
Keep up the great work and great product!

Whether you’re shooting long range and hitting steel or on an hunt of an lifetime for Elk, the Helos BTR FFP Rifle Scope is the most economical first focal plane rifle scope on the market.

Bradley Loves The Argos BTR Rifle Scope…Bright Glass!

I first started off shooting with leupold, Nikon, and vortex glass. Very good and every thing, never had too many problems with any of them except Nikon I had a scope that wouldn’t hold zero and missed a 14 pointer that probably would of been one of the biggest deer I could of killed in my life time. So after that I was pretty upset. I have never been much of a long range shooter. Always shot within 300 yards since all I did was hunt. As I got older I loved shooting as far as I was able too. That’s when I got the vortex scopes. I owned a vortex viper hs-t and a vortex viper pst. Both were great and I loved them. Other then the pst kept having issues with the illuminated reticle. When I was about to send it back to vortex for the 3rd time I heard of Athlon Optics Rifle Scopes and was so surprised by the price for FFP, illuminated reticle, and all that stuff I mean their Argos BTR Rifle Scope was half the price almost then a PST and I loved it way more. I really like how clear the glass was in my Argos and the reticle wasn’t so thin! I have since taken it to 800 yards. I have dropped the gun it was on from a 4 ft drop on accident during a night hog hunt and it was still dead on and every thing still worked perfect.

The Argos BTR Rifle Scope brings in tons of light during the evenings and when there’s a full moon some times don’t even have to turn on the lights to take a shot at a hog or coyote. I plan on putting Athlon scopes on all my guns that I use mostly and any new ones I buy.
