Which one would you choose? Price is about the same.

I'd pick the Vortex just to get an actual 1× on the low side. A 1.5× never made much sense to me. Add the bigger tube and objective, and the warranty. Vortex all day for me.

Yeah, you can, but the improvement will be marginal and very costly.

Oh, yes, you can!!! I will put up Leupold against a Vortex everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. For reliability, the Vortex is more durable, internally. The Vortex shares the same mechanics inside the scope as the Nightforce scopes. I have seen many Leupolds go down. They are a great scope company, but there are better and more durable options available. I'm not talking about glass clarity, simply internal construction.

People have been arguing scope brands since I joined this forum in 06.
If you are a casual shooter like most of us and stick with a quality brand, you probably won't have an issue either way.

THIS^^^, but it's so much fun to argue, I mean debate. just remember everyone will "sell" what they run, nobody wants to admit their choice sucked.

I went with the Leupold V-6, 1-6, love it

Burris is coming out with a 1-8 with a 34mm tube, pretty cool for an AR, shooting 3-gun

in your budget, pick the one u like

Yes, Leupold quality CAN be beat, but not without paying more.

It's all about compromises. What's the weight of a Nightforce compared to the weight of a Leupold? Take these two scopes in the OP for instance. Is the Vortex more durable? Maybe it is. It weighs half again what the Leupold weighs.

For me, it's Leupold because the eye box is very forgiving, the glass is excellent, plus the lifetime warranty is not something you need to exercise frequently. I've owned probably 40 to 50 Leupolds and never had one go south on me.

Sometimes you NEED a scope that's tougher because your rifle pounds them apart. If it's going to be a Nightforce ar something else that weighs as much, you'd need to spend a lot more on mounting the thing too.

I SO want one of these. I really hope that it's a quality optic.

I have the Leupold in firedot form. I like the scope but not a huge fan of the SPR reticle which uses 2.5 Mil subtensions. Be more useful if they were 1 mil.
