The Swarovski X5 turret is large but it is easy to see in low light situations. I used a factory Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor and with factory 140 AMAX's was able to dial up to 1400 yards, then it hit at 1500 yards using the elevation lines on the reticle. I am not sure the Vortex can do that.

Might help if you mention which model. 1” rings will work for either.

X5 5-25x56 30mm on a PLR HS Precision. Thinking Talley lightweight ring mount combo. Not sure I need to go 20 MOA rail for a flat shooting 6.5 PRC and all the adjustments of the SWAROVSKI X5

Check with Talley and see if their medium rings are high enough for a 56mm objective.
