NorCalFocus, I have been patiently waiting for your input/decision which rifle you have scoped and the details. I have looked and maybe I missed it or you just do not wish to post yours.

LOL, I thought I posted in here long ago, guess not.

When I get on my computer tonight I'll post, as it will be easier to follow the format.

Curious why your waiting for my input?

Well NCF, not to polish your shoes but I have learned a great bit from you and highly accept your opinion on anything firearm related knowing you will not steer those astray. I have learned from the military that you only learn from those that know more than you and when it came to the job, follow only from those that know it.

BTW, didn't you say "I don't want this to turn into a discussion thread.";)

Scope: Vortex Viper HS LR 6-24x50 FFP
MSRP: $1049.99
Gun you use it on: Remington 700 SPS Varmint .308
Style of Shooting: Long Range Steel Ringing, Hobby Shooting
Pros: Great value in this scope. One of the least expensive FFP scope out there. Good glass, easy to read reticle, and good tracking. I like the christmas tree style reticle as it provides lots of hold over or wind hold options.
Cons: Capped windage turret and no illuminated reticle. I wish the reticle was illuminated because when you zoom out the reticle does become small and hard to read.

Scope: Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44
MSRP: $529.00
Gun you use it on: Home build AR, 20" barrel 5.56 chamber
Style of shooting: Medium range steel, precision/DMR, varmint hunting
Pros: This scope can be had on sale for $300 often. At that price is way under priced. Clear glass, easy to adjust and read zoom ring, forgiving eye relief, 30mm tube.
Cons: BDC reticle, capped turrets, no zero stop.
