I have the 6-24x50 model.
I've had it mounted on a couple rifles so far, right now it's on my .308 Palma. At 600 yards it appeared to track through all my wind adjustments accurately and returned to zero.
I've let some guys who's opinions I respect, look through it for their thoughts on the glass quality. We've concluded that between my Vortex and the Sightron (which we all own) has the higher resolution and clarity. I bought the Vortex expecting this, knowing the great features would offset the slightly lesser glass. I'm not a glassoholic by any means, so I really dig this scope.
It looks and feels, solid and tough. The only thing that concerns me, or I can picture being a weak link in the future are the rubberized variable power ring. This may never have a problem, but I could just see the adhesion coming apart after years of use.
I haven't tried the zero stop feature yet, so I can't comment on this. Once it settles on a rifle then I will try it. From what I've read, I understand it doesn't come to a stop right on zero, but somewhere near zero, then you must eyeball it back to match your point blank zero. That is what I expect, hopefully someone here has tried it and can explain.
