    Athlon Ares ETR 4.5-30x56 opinions/reviews?

    has anyone used the Althon Ares ETR? glass quality, build quality as good as I have heard?

    This guy says it is a better value for the money than the Nightforce NXS and Vortex Razor. Looking to see what you guys think. I am looking for a scope for my 6.5 CM I have a budget of $2000 but would rather not spend that much if possible and still get a good quality scope. My goal with this rifle is to be able to shoot 1000 yards and a mile someday if possible. I am not a competition shooting.

    If not the Athlon Ares ETR anyone have suggestions on the best value scope for what I would like to do without going over $2k.

    Thanks,

    Here is that video I found on youtube.

    Just an option, Euro optic has the Gen 2 Vortex Razors with the EBR 2C reticle for under 1900

    I have 2 of them. Had them over 3 years without issue. The glass is clear, nice audible clicks. I bought it when it was 2500.00, and I have no regrets. So to see them at under 1900.00 to me is a great value.

    ya I like that. Do you think it is worth $700 more for the Razor over the Ares ETR? I do like the look of that Vortex better I think.

    I honestly could not tell you since I have never owned a Athlon optic. I will say that for under 2k the Razor gen 2 is a great choice, it is a bit heavy at 46oz, Ares is 36oz I believe. Only thing I really saw is the Athlon is made in China and the Gen 2 Razor is made in Japan.

    gr8fulddoug - how would you compare the Ares ETR to the Razor HD 2? any benefits to the Razor over the ETR.
