Re: Vortex optics??

All the Vortex scopes I have, and have used in the past have been Vipers. So I can't say much about the Diamond backs. But I can tell you I have never found a better scope for the price than a Vortex. I like them alot for the price.

I have a Vortex (their top of the line) on my Barrett 6.8, takes abuse and is a great scope for the money....

Re: Vortex optics??

Woo Hoo!!!

I just found out my Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle that I had on backorder from Camera Land is being delivered today!

Oh, and I love Vortex Scopes. I was always a Leupold fanatic for 40 years and I only have Vortex scopes on my rifles now!

I have two Vipers and just ordered a third from Camera Land. All are 6.5x20x44 PA's. I realy like that scope. This one is going on a 280 Remington build.

Re: Vortex optics??

I Sent my viper pa 6.5-20x44 in. It wasn't tracking back to zero correctly. It seem to go back to zero after a few shots. Should be back in a couple days. I sent it to them on 4/18, and just got a e-mail today that said it was on its way back allready. Hope they don't tell me there was nothing wrong with it. So far an excellent experience with costomer service.

Re: Vortex optics??

i had 2 of the 6-20's, sent both back because they didn't repeat very well and they moved the poi about 10% more than they should have. traded the second for a 4-16 HS and am really happy with this scope. repeats great and all in all a great scope for the money. i've had to deal with their CS and it's been very good to me.
