Well I was thinking VX3 cuz for the price if I went with the mark4 I may as we'll spend a few dollars more and go nightforce!

You get a lot more for your dollar with Vortex and a far superior warranty.

VIP Warranty is 100% NO FAULT lifetime. Fully transferable. No registration or receipt needed. Just have it in your possession. No questions asked. Doesn't matter how it got damaged or why, just send it in and they'll take care of it free and clear.

going on my 6 vx 3 scopes and 1 vortex if what you want is in the 20x or bigger

vortex if repeatability is your main concern

and leupold if it's glass you prefer...

Re: Vortex or leupold?

I have been a die hard leupold fan my entire life. Recently I have become a fan of vortex which has cause me to buy and try more of their stuff. First of all Vortex hands down had the best warranty out there. I have a razor spotting scope which I love. I also have had 2 rifle scopes. a PST and a Diamondback. they have cool reticles and the PST has cool features... but the eye relief is a major issue for me. the eye relief on Vortex Rifle scopes is extraordinarily short. For that reason I only own my Razor spotting scope still and I have no plans to get rid of it.. Also Vortex is a heck of a company. really good people with a personal touch. Customer service is second to none....That being said I say VX3 for a rifle scope

I agree, I was a die hard Leupold fan for many years. Then I bought my first PST. Now I own six of them. Go with the Vortex all day, you will not be disappointed.
