Re: Nikon vs Vortex
I have both too. At first look I'd take the Vortex simply because of the 30mm tube. The 30mm tube is stouter than the 1", has more gripping surface for your rings, and the 30mm tube usually provides more adjustment in the turret.
Update: After verifying specs. The Vortex has 75 MOA elevation adjustment vs. Nikon's 40 MOA. The Vortex has a lot of features for $450 and a fabulous wrranty to back it up, not sure about Nikon's warranty service. Of the two, Vortex would be my choice.
