I run vortex optics on all my rifles, ranging from their low end crossfires all the way to their viper pst on my 308.even use their red dot on my ar15. I swear by their products. I have friends who are hardcore Leupold fanatics, and say that if vortex had their reputation 3 years ago they would have gone with vortex all the way. Don't get me wrong Leupold are excellent products with a great warranty, but the household name will cost you the extra money

I have a vortex viper an its no better than any of my leupold vx3 scopes, their warranty is no better than leupys either, so are they less than leupold?? I say no, are they better??? Nope, they are good optics. I have a razor hd as well an its every bit as good as my swaro z5. I have the means to try many different scope brands, an I always go back to leupold, the new vx6 in 2x12 cds is on a build im finishing an its every bit as good if not better than my swarovski z6 which was next to insane money wise.

Ya they are but the scopes are good and clear.....I don't use the hold over points on it anyways. Just like the clear glass for the price.

If you're only looking at 100 yards, a bushnell trophy xlt ( gander mountain, $200 )should suffice. I can see holes from a .17 hmr at 100 yards. The tripod it comes with is junk, $40 at Walmart will get a decent replacement.

All in all there's so many good brands out there, but its all about personal liking and how much a feature or name is worth to you.

Personally I think features, affordability, quality and if it fits your uses is key. Who cares about if is says tasco or swarvo if it fits your needs and you like it?
