Any firsthand reviews?

Im thinking about picking one up in 3.5-14x50 for my 25-06 or 308. Havent decided which gun to upgrade the glass on yet.

Looks like they are around $400. I have Cabelas gift cards to spend so I figured that I would upgrade some glass.

Gun is primarily used for deer hunting. Could potentially take to Kansas to hunt deer.

Im partial to Nikon but am open to other brands at the same price point. I do own a cpl Vortex and Burris.

They are a great scope for the money, track really well and repeat within reason. Clarity is really good also, I have let some people look thru mine and they have all remarked at the clarity.

I had the 3.5-14, glass was decent but I hated their BDC reticle.

I have several Nikons and have never had an issue with one, cannot say that for Leupold, Vortex or Burris

Should be happy with it. My Nikon prostaff 3x9 has been great. I actually like the bdc on mine but I also rarely lower power setting so keeps it accurate.

I got one 4 or 5 years ago for my Model 70 30.06. I'm very happy with it. I had always used the Leupold VX2 3-9x40 before.
