Dead-Hold BDC Reticle

Customized hashmark design helps eliminate guesswork on holdover and windage corrections. Good for hunting/shooting at varying ranges where estimating holdover is a concern.

Note
Read the Dead-Hold BDC Reticle manual for details on using the reticle for bullet drop compensation and wind drift compensation and ranging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Topnotch I've owned a lot of different brands of high quality scopes over the years but this is my first vortex. The features like the quality construction, crystal clear glass, excellent focus and eye relief plus good positive clicks on the turrets makes the Vortex Crossfire II scope in my opinion at the top of the pack in its price range and better than some higher priced scopes. A+++++++++++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greta Scope at a Great Price I was getting into hunting to see if I enjoyed it, so I didn't want to spend too much on a gun or optic for my first deer rifle. People really tried pushing the Nikons or Leupolds on me, but I decided to take a chance with the Vortex Crossfire II and was more than pleased. I have now put a little more than 250 rounds of .308 through this scope (and 4 hunts) and have consistently shot sub-MOA groups and can observe my own groups from 100 yards and max zoom. As for glass clarity, I found it better than other scopes priced around 0 (this scope at a fraction of that price). The BDC reticle is accurate for calculating drop (that I've tested) at 300 and 400m. If you're looking to make consistent 300m shots with a bolt rifle, this is the scope for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again! When I came across this scope I was looking for something that I could use for my AR style rifle for load development. I did't want to spend a lot of money on a scope that would spend most of its life in the gun safe. comparing this scope to others in the price range, this scope was the best hands down. Since buying 3 years ago I have used it on multiple guns (223 AR up to 300 Win Mag) to develop loads for my self and friends/family. It has worked flawlessly through the different recoils of the guns I have used it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More bang for your buc. After being a Leupold owner my entire hunting career I was reluctant to try another scope. I had purchased a new 7mm08 and was talked into trying a vortex by a hunting partner. I'm actually pretty happy with what I got for the money I spent. It's clear and has a outstanding warranty. What's not to love about those two things. Now everyone in our group is shooting vortex scopes. W

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Level, Budget Performance!!! This is my go to hunting scope for any new rifle I put together or recommend to acquaintances, friends, and family. The value that Vortex brings to the table with the Crossfire II is unmatched. I love the 4-16 magnification range for longer shots. I'm able to get a good luck at what I'm seeing before even thinking about taking a shot. Once again, I was pleasantly surprised at the lowlight performance on an entry level optic. But man does it do well! Overall, the optic does what I need it to do and then some. I have no qualms, only accolades for this well built scope. Buy with confidence. You cannot go wrong with such a good optic, especially when it's back by Vortex's warranty. You simply cannot do better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value glass This scope is mounted on my Savage model 11 in .204 Ruger as my beater varmint rifle. It's light, inexpensive ( not cheap), has plenty of zoom , clearer glass that several other brand scopes in the same price range. Clicks are not as distinct as I prefer but that's splitting hairs. Always returns to zero, has taken a beating in the back of the jeep between fields and never lost zero. All in all fantastic scope the price. This was the product that sold me on my other Vortex scopes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry level I’ve had my crossfire for over 4 years on my 270 Remington. This was a perfect scope for me for the price, although it is not the greatest glass it definitely gets the job done at 100yards or under. Once I started shooting out to longer distances I have noticed that quality of picture definitely drops off. That is not to say that you can’t ahoot out past 100 with this scope but if you are more serious about your shooting then you would probably want to upgrade. But I can’t say a bad thing about this scope for an entry level rifle scope!

Hello. I plan to use the Crossfir II 4-16x50 on a 45-70Govt with quite punchy (Ruger No.1) 460gr homeloads.  Will this scope withstand the recoil and hold zero? I am in the UK, does the VIP warranty cover only the original purchaser? Thanks

Asked by: Bangbang
Yes, this scope will hold up to your 45-70. Our VIP Warranty is for the lifetime of the product. As long as it is our product, we've got you covered.
