Need Vortex Optics reviews

Anyone out there using vortex optics? They look real good on paper, but I'm hoping some of you have real field use evaluations of their scopes,bino's and rangefinder.

Re: Need Vortex Optics reviews

I have Leupold, Nikon, unertyl scopes on varies rifles. the last 2 scopes I bought were Vortex, & could not be happier. I put a 6-24 Crossfire on my 40x to see how good they were. Shot 2 shots at 6x, 1 at 14x &2at 24x, for a 5 shot group under .3 of an inch. The turrets tracked perfect. I never thought it would stay on my 40x when I bought it, but the Best 99 dollar scope I ever bought. I have since bought a Diamondback 4-12 for my 30-338 ($198.00 ON SALEAT CABELAS) & I am pleased with this scope also.

Re: Need Vortex Optics reviews

I have two Vipers and for the price point, they're pretty good.

Banged one of them around for a week on a PD hunt in WY this past June.....again, they don't have quite the clarity of more expensive glass but, at the price, they're a solid value.

Re: Need Vortex Optics reviews

I bought 2 Viper HS 4x16 and will give them a test on upcoming Oryx hunt. So far on the range I am very satisfied with their quality and claity. I have been using Leupold and Nikon and they appear better. I was turned on to them by a very proficient 600 yard competition shooter who has been using nothing but the Vortex scopes. You get allot of features and quality for the price.

Re: Need Vortex Optics reviews

I need to upgrade a couple of older scopes. I'm thinking a crossfire for a 243 that My daughter will use, and either a Diamondback or Viper for My 270. I also will need a rangefinder for a Wyoming whitetail hunt next year.

Re: Need Vortex Optics reviews

I have a 4-12x44 Crossfire II coming from Midway, i went and looked that this one and the Redfeild Revenge 4-12x42 and actually liked them both but went with the Vortex for the warranty.
It should be here Thursday so I can get it mounted on my Rem 700 CDL 35 Whelen.
Ill report back after the weekend with it.
