Yeah, I thought a little of the same. For me it is strictly for hunting applications. I would really like the added magnification. I shoot a 4-12x Scheels brand scope right now, and I don't have any problem with the glass, would just like a little more magnification for when I am shooting longer shots at muleys in the open country. The pluses to the Crossfire would be it is a lifetime warranty so that would be good, and it is only $100 so that is pretty good too.
I was not sure about the same thing. I got a request in to Vortex to see what their thoughts are. I have shot lower cost scopes my whole life and had pretty good luck with them so I guess I'm not too super concerned about it but it just seems that unless I spend a lot of money, most of the scopes with that sort of magnification are builts more for tactical and varmint guns, not necessarily large bore hunting rifles. Maybe I would just be best off with the 4-12x I have I guess.
if you spend a little more. nikon makes a few nice ones.. a 4x14 and a 6x18 they are in the buckmasters series. nikon scopes are very clear and have a lifetime warranty...these scopes go for around 299 to 370...
im planning on getting the 6x18 when i get my new rem 700 in a few months
Well, I took the plunge. I ordered one. The seller was the lifetime warranty. Really not a lot of risk to it with that I guess. If it doesn't go well on my 7mm, then I'll just have to buy a 22-250 to put it on. lol
With the 50mm scope housing, am I going to need to some special rings and bases so it fits above my barrel? It's a Remington 700 Sendero SF II if that makes any difference.
