Ya, the vortex scopes usually run pretty close to dead on with their listed advertised prices. At least the Gen 1 Razor has always been right around $2K which is what they are listed at.

MSRP on the current 6-20x50 Razor is $2499, most places advertise them for $1999... I got mine for $1700.

Hopefully there will eventually be deals like thus on the new offerings!

New from a dealer, or used from individual. Ive never seen a 5-20 razor new for 1700 or even close to that.

Of the nicer scopes I have or have had (Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x50mm M5, Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50mm, and the SWFA SS 5-20x50) I like the image on this one the best.

I like the thicker reticule and illumination since I hog hunt as well. The reticule does not get lost in the brush and the illumination is just a red dot in the center so the target does not get washed out, and I can get it centered fast.

I'm very happy with it and with the price these are going for on the secondary market ($900-$1,100) it is a very good value.

Mine has a solid 30 Mils elevation (actually a little more) which really just adds to the value, it's kind of hard to find that kind of internal adjustment at that price.

The clicks are very positive and repeatable. Plus, unlike one of my other scopes (that I have mounted on an AR-15) with uncapped turrets the
effort needed to rotate the elevation and wind-age on the SS is significant enough that I have not had an instance of accidental rotation like I have on the AR-15 scope.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can see long range hunters needing to practice much further than 1000 yards so they can guarantee good hits at closer ranges.
just wanted to point out that you cut and pasted what I actually did say to make it having a different meaning that what I actually said. strange.

look if you carry an 18# rifle around more power to you. I don't consider that man portable in a hunting situation. we have a difference of opinion if thats the case. I am not going to carry a rifle that goes much beyond about 11#'s in the mountains. a rifle of this weight will take animals out to as far as I can actually judge a trophy to. my point in all this is when you get to 1500 yards and beyond you can't judge how big the elk your shooting at is precisely you can't accurately tell how big the deer your shooting at is. a 34 mm tube scope just makes your rifle more clunky. if you don't care about carrying an 18# gun around, thats fine but your in the minority. when I hunt generally I am further than a few hundred yards from my truck or 4 wheeler
