Great for high powered spring pellet guns

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on March 11, 2014
Needed an adjustable objective (down to 10 yards and out to 100+) scope that has a lifetime warranty (springers eat scopes) and excellent picture quality for a high powered spring pellet gun. This one fit the bill. I am very pleased, though a bit pricey when you add the AO ($100 more than the standard).
Pros: Lifetime warranty. Adjustable objective. Clear.
Cons: A bit pricey when adding the adjustable objective....
Would recommend: Yes

Solid scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OK Written on February 20, 2014
Very decent scope for the money. I'm not blown away with this item, like most people that comment on vortex products. Scope adjustments seem accurate and the glass is just as good as a VXII for less $ so I cannot complain. Best warranty in the business so if you don't like it they'll take it back or exchange it for another. Give it a try.
Pros: AO focus down to 10 yards
Cons: Not side focus...
Would recommend: Yes

A great BDC for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on March 11, 2013
It seems to be very durable but I havent shot it yet so I wont speak on that part. The glass has good clarity. When up against my Leupold VX-II the clarity is same. The clarity and color gathering ability is better than my Trophy XTL. The Vortex BDC is like a cross between a mil-dot and a BDC. Instead of dots it has hash marks and there are 4 hash marks on the horizontal crosshair instead of the 2 shown in the picture. The adjustable objective lens is nice and works well. It has a good amount of resistance without being overly stiff. Over all its a quality scope for a fair price. If it shoots as good as it looks I wouldnt hesitate to buy another.
Pros: Price and BDC
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Great scope for the $$

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on February 2, 2013
Great scope for the $$! I was recently turned on to vortex at a gun show and was amazed at the clarity of the glass and the price! I immediately came home and sold my Nikon monarch to replace it with a vortex. As far as I'm concerned they're the best value in the scope $ for $ and have by far the best warranty! Many more to come for me!...

Best buy for the buck $

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on November 2, 2012
This is an excellent scope. I had it on my Remington SPS AAC 308 while I was waiting on my Viper 4-16 HST FFP to come in. It worked great. Now it is on my 300Mag Sako and sstill working excellent after 173 rounds. I have always been hard core Leupold, but now have 4 Vortex and really like the cleareer glass. Features? They are all good. Avid shooter and hunter. Shoot 200-300 rifle and pistol rounds a week. I think the the individual going to Alaska just happen to get a defective scope which can also happen with Schmidt & Bender.
Pros: Excellent scope
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Pretty nice scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on November 3, 2011
I like this scope, for what I bought it for, it will do fine. I put it on savage stevens 200 in .223 which it a tac driver to my amasemet. I used DNZ scope mount which also recommend. With the low mount, the scope is so low to reciever I couldnt put scope caps on without modifying the scope cap with a cut out to clear the barrel.Not a bad thing though. The lower the better.
Pros: Clear glass, nice reticle
Cons: wish there was more of a audible click when adjusting turrets...
Would recommend: Yes
