Thanks for the feedback Jon!
While this isn't a $1500-$3000 Nightforce, US Optics etc I think it should be a step above your averge Redfield or Nikon hunting scope that typically runs about $300-$500 right?
This is Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 that should be capable of some higher degree of accuracy? Maybe not that of the above mentioned scopes but it just seems that 1 degree cant is more than should be acceptable for a tactical scope in this price range. It is supposed to be more accurate at longer range than a typical under 200 yard hunting scope.
I measured the cant to be about 1.1 degrees...it's visibly noticable when the scope is mounted with the turret level.
Vortex customer service is probably the best I've ever delt with but this is a new replacement scope they inspected and sent with a canted reticle and then advised that it meets specifications when I asked about it. The scope it replaced also had a canted reticle though more severe.
Not sure at this point if I'd rather have great customer service or a great scope LOL.
