I swore I would never buy a Vortex scope. Seems it is 50/50 on getting a lemon. Well I found a smoking deal on a 6-24 HS. So I ordered it yesterday along with some Talley rings. I want to test the scope out and see if it is comparable to the Zeiss I have on other rifles. It will find a temporary home on my 7mm till I get the Nightforce SHV.

This rifle isn't a tacticool or target rifle. I built it to kill animals so I wanted something with turret caps. This scope seems to fit the bill for now.

I ordered the PST 6-24, for the same reason. Let me know how you like it and your over all impressions.

I have the 4-16 PST and I like it very much. I don't think the glass will make you want to toss your Zeiss or Leupold VX3 into the trash, but it's plenty good enough. I have read, but can't verify, that the HS glass is better than the PST glass. I'm sure that the serious Vortex fans on here will give you the good scoop.

I spent quite a while researching the crossfire II. I almost bought one til I realized I needed different features to learn to shoot long range. If the reviews are true, you should be pretty happy with it. I may end up buying one anyways for the 7mm mauser I just got.

this will be for a dedicated mini 30 hog gun, short range (150 yds or less) and mainly night hunting, I got the 3-9x40 with lighted reticle.
it was 50.00 off on amazon and someone said it was discontinued so I snagged one.
