Anyone have this scope and what has been your experience with it?

I have one and I like it. Big clear optic, the etched reticle is a nice feature. My one complaint is the short eye relief. That made it a little difficult to get it where I wanted it on my SLR.

Just mounted one on my rifle this week. I know it's like comparing a Mercedes to a Kia, but years ago on my service rifle I had an ACOG 4x and loved it. Just can't afford one of those and I like Vortex warranty. I like the etched reticle also. Hope to get to the range this week, will let you no how it works out.

If you have astigmatism, you will love the etched reticule (no star burst).

Took it out to the range. Boresighted it. A couple of rounds to zero at 50 yards. Fired groups with different types of ammo at 50 yards and 100 yards. I like the etched reticle. I turned on the red illumination but in the bright daylight I did not need it and turned it off. The illumination knob is readily accessible if you need it. Windage and elevation clicks were solid and accurate. Flip up scope caps are included. Mount is solid. Second crosshair down was great for precise close range( 25 and 15 yard ) shooting.
