Re: zeiss vs. vortex for ar 15

Well the 6X is a little high but not bad. Also the markings of 10 and 20 MOA are not as small as I thought. I can read them on low power. One thing that is nice is the illuminated cross hairs if you decide you need to see them better. I would still go for the 4-16 on the AR.

On the moving targets is it hard to find the center of the cross hairs or do your eyes move to it quickly?

I didnt have any problem. But the illumination is there if you really want to see the cross hairs instead of the black blending in.

I ended up with the 4-16 vortex viper PST. I have only put like 50 rounds through it but so far I love it.The only complaint is that the turrets are a little easy to spin so if iI slide it in and out of a case theysspin. But they always return to my zero.
