Re: Millett vs. Vortex need advice
I own two Vortex scopes, a Viper 6.5-20X44 Mil-Dot, and a Viper HS 4-16X44 BDC and I LOVE them. They certainly are the best "tactical" scopes I've found for the price.
I don't really have any experience with Millets, but I can definitely give two thumbs up for Vortex. They have good solid adjustments, finger-adjustable turrets that pull up to re-zero, clear glass, good magnification ranges, and MOST importantly... they stay zeroed unlike many other low priced brands.
In fact, the only complaint that I have is that the finish on my Viper HS scratches very easily. Finger-nail easily. But that's only cosmetic. Other than that, I don't think there is a better scope out there for under $500.
Hope this helps.
