TFB Review: Swampfox Optics Blade and Trihawk Prism Scopes

Swampfox Optics is a relative newcomer to the world of firearms glass. They recently turned two years old, having been founded on Independence Day in 2018. Students of American history will already have observed that their link to the founding of the United States doesn’t simply coincide with shared birthdays. The company’s name hearkens back to one of America’s first warfighting heroes, Francis Marion. Marion earned his “Swamp Fox” nickname during the American Revolutionary War, in which he served as a Continental Army officer. The name came about due to Marion’s expertise in irregular warfare and guerilla tactics, which he had learned from Cherokee fighters during the French and Indian War. His unusual (for the time) methods proved highly effective against Redcoat forces, and repeatedly served to frustrate the British. This caused the Brits to send Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton on a special mission to hunt down the wily American. Marion led his small band on a 26-mile evasive maneuver, which allowed them to slip away from Tarleton’s men by escaping through a system of swamp trails. Then resigned to his failure, Tarleton is reported to have cursed, “As for this damned old fox, the Devil himself could not catch him.” Thus the legend of the “Swamp Fox” was born. Today, Swampfox Optics draws inspiration and a sort of spiritual descendancy from Marion.

TFB Review: Hawke Sidewinder ED 10-50×60

In the interest of full disclosure, I have to start by saying I am not a bench rest shooter.  The best 5 shot group I have ever fired measured in at .18 of an inch, which for me was outstanding.  I have since punched some holes pretty close to (or overlapping to be more precise) each other but nothing to top that.  Now, to most shooters, this would be more than satisfactory and something of a once in a lifetime experience, but to a certain crowd unless I was able to average that group size over 5 groups of 5 rounds each I am not even going to raise an eyebrow.   In fact last year the winner of the 2017 International Benchrest Shooters Heavy Varmint Group division shot an aggregate (average of 5 x 5 round groups) of .1518. Yes, that is correct he essentially shot 5 groups equal to or better than my personal best back to back to back to back to back.
