I was shopping for a scope to put on my 6.5-06AI for whitetail hunting. Low light opportunities for shots are disproportionately higher. My Eyes have not aged gracefully. I looked through a VXR red dot and decided that I wanted that or similar. I ended up buying the VX6. All I can say is flat out I love this thing so far. If it ends up being robust, this will have been an excellent value. I cant afford the higher end stuff so the only thing I can compare it to are Conquest and Weaver Supler Slam. Better than each of them. And the CDS and 12 power is more than adequate for my needs out to 6-700 yards. Very pleased. Now need to see it stand up to use in field.
