Vortex is far and above all other optics I have used. I have Vortex scopes on all my rifles. Bino's are excellent. So are their rangefinders.

All I know is that they make some very nice red dots.

Vortex is CRYSTAL CLEAR. a guy did like a scope shoot out between the vortex diamondback Nikon red field revolution bushnell 3200 and Burris fullfield 2 and the vortex dominated. He was comparing the glass and eye relied to the thousand dollar Zeus and conquests. I have one in a 4-12x40 with adjustable objective. That thing makes me feel like I'm at the eye doctor gettin my upgraded from 20:20!! The clarity is amazing. The durability is outstanding. Go to YouTube and search vortex diamondback review or test and a man will put it through a series of tests such as leaving it in freezer for 24 hours. Dropping it. And submerging in water for 24 hours. At the end, perfectly clear. The scope is the best of its class hands down. Only 300 on amazon. 2 day shipping for free with free trial of amazon prime and no tax. Great deal for superb scope.

I own them all. Vortex is good in their higher end scopes only.

Leupold would be the best of the bunch. It is priced accordingly. There is nothing wrong with the Bushnell Elite line and their warranty is also lifetime.

Bushnell Legend HD is, IMO, the best scope for the money........Bar none.

How appropriate to see this thread after looking at scopes yesterday for my AR build.

Looked at just nikon and leupold. In the same price category, and just looking across the cabela's store (stated as 125 yds), I noticed leupold was much much clearer than nikon, which shocked me.

Guess I need to go back and if they have vortex there too

I've had Leupold Vari x III scopes on my .270 and 30-06 for over 20 years and they are both as good as the day I put them on. I really couldn't be happier with them.

Your results may vary, but I've dragged them all over the Country on hunts and they are darn good scopes in any light or weather condition.

I retired a Bushnell 4200 Elite 6-24x50 FFP mil/mil, replacing it with a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 FFP mil/mil. It was a notable improvement in image quality and the difference in turrets was a BIG improvement.

The 4200 turrets are "mushy", IMO, when changing elevation or windage while the Viper PST is sharp and distinct....and you gotta love the zero stop on the elevation adjustment.



The Viper PST has an illuminated reticle but I find no need to use it unless I'm shooting in a dawn/dusk situation.

Two years ago, I had the chance to take a Precision Rifle course and used the Viper PST while doing so. I had purchased it just a few months prior, zeroed it at the range, and had about 100 rounds down range using it. Needless to say, I made countless windage and elevation adjustments during the 4 day course. Every time I dialed the turrets back to their zero positions, bullet impact was right back on the bull at 100 yards.



The next scope I purchase will be a Vortex, no doubt about it.

Vortex is GREAT. The company itself is very VERY good and their products are even better. Optics wise I would go with Nikon or Vortex as Bushnell seems to have severely gone down in quality. Nikon glass is great for clear viewing and Vortex adds lots of options.
