Re: Vortex opinion DOWNGRADE
Wanted to update you all. After recieving my Vortex Viper upgrade I have had no issues what so ever and absolutly love the scope! I have fired at least 200 rounds through that rifle since I originally mounted the upgrade. No issues!
So, I bought another rifle recently, a Weatherby .243 and decided to give Vortex another shot. Purchased a Crossfire 6x24x50 this past week and mounted it. I have shot nearly 50 rounds since I mounted that scope. Then realized around round 35 or so, the shots seemed to be rising steadily. After about 5 more shots, i adjusted the turret back down and made note of its position 3.0 After another three shots, it was now on 3.2. My suspicians were true. The elevation turret is "jumping" settings nearly every shot.
Called Vortex this morning, they are sending me out a replacement. I have a feeling it wont matter. Track record seems to show that even a .243 is too much recoil for a Vortex Crossfire scope. PENDING.
