Re: Optics for a mountain rifle...?

The new vortex HS-t is coming in at 20oz ( if I'm not mistaken) 13.5" I think it'd make a nice mtn rifle scope if you're looking to dial! I think the new 2.5 will have capped turrets w/zero stop, would be a good option too. Downside, paying for FFP, don't think it'll be out for awhile. Might be wrong though

I have been eyeballing the HS-T as well but the FFP has a larger share of my interest currently. Do you consider FFP worth the extra buy in?

It's been said Nikon has better glass than Vortex, which has me on the fence over which one is the best option. Would anyone care to share their thoughts on this statement?

One of the BIGGEST points in Vortex's favor is their warranty =)

As you can see I continue to go back and forth on this! (First world problems I guess)

I was just at the Harrisburg sportsmen show and handled quite a few scopes. If money was no cost a swaro z6 would be my choice for a hunting scope. Best glass I ever looked through, and that was with a S&B police marksman side by side. The Zeiss conquest HD glass impressed me, but at much as that impressed the terra disappointed. Meopta makes some good glass in your price range and their meostar glass was good.

Personally I use a vortex pst and would buy another. It's 22 ounces. Right now camera land has a good selection of demo glass from the shot show.

Good luck with your choice.
