Ray....I was looking at both the Vortex scopes and binoculars just last week at a sporting goods store, and they both looked very impressive. The guy behind the counter really spoke highly of them, and in this case, I think he really knew what he was talking about. I think you'd be very pleased.....but like CH said, check them out for yourself.
Well I took a shot & bought a vortex 6-24x. Got a good deal on it & recieved it. Didn't have time to mount it & shoot it yet. Looking though it, it looks really good. I'll try to mount it & give a report in the next couple of weeks.
