V-Plex Reticle (MOA)

A popular all-purpose hunting reticle intended for a wide variety of hunting applications.

Subtension detail for the Crossfire 6-18x44 AO with V-Plex Reticle. >

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am definitely a Vortex fan I installed the scope on my 308 Win. Remington 738 using the Remington one piece base/ring assembly. No lapping was needed. After bore sighting, which required 2 clicks to left, I took it to the range and dialed it in at 50 and then 100 yards. The windage and elevation turrets are easy to use and the glass is so clear. I replaced the factory synthetic stock with a Boyds stock and since then have fired 6 boxes of Remington Corelokt through it and it remains dead on at 100 yards shooting sub 3/4 inch 3 shot groups. I am most impressed with the optical quality and the overall quality and durability of this scope. Fan for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skeptic turned believer!!! I recently purchased a crossfire 2 to mount on my 300 win mag. I was a little skeptical purchasing since I've always been a Nikon guy. The first time I looked though it I couldn't believe how clear and sharp the image was. So I put I to the test.. I had it zeroed in about 6 shots. Then I rapid fired my rifle as fast as I could load it back up again for about 25 rounds (yea it wasn't cheap or nice to my shoulder) just to see if it would hold zero after a lot of recoil. Sure enough I was shooting quarter size groups again it was spot on! I will be getting another Vortex for the next rifle I purchase whatever that may be. There aren't enough stars to truly rate this scope!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints Excellent service 3 weeks ago I bought a 6x18x44 VO which same day on the firing range would not hold zero. Adjusting the parallax noticed something floating around inside the scope. Not a problem as things happen. Vortex was quick to email me a Fedx label and on it's way. After receiving the scope back I noticed they did not send my sunshade or lens covers.Not a problem. Things happen. Placed a phone call to customer support and problem was immediately fixed with the 2 items being sent back. I have no complaints about service or the products themselves as I also have 3 other Vortex scopes mounted on other rifles and all perform as well or better than higher priced scopes I previously had mounted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from from haze,too brightness Recent purchase of the rifle scope ( Crossfirei ii 6-18x44 AO Dead Hold BDC ) has certainly changed the ability for me to shoot my new rifle with this attached. Being 78yrs old the shooting eyes are not what they used too be. My Springfield 1903-03 30-06 rifle with iron target sights at 100yds leaves much to be desired. Eye focusing becomes a real problem,from one shot to another, because of blurred vision etc,through a peep sight. Vortex solved that problem with the above scope mentioned. Focusing now is easy from daybreak to sunset for these old eyes!! Also your lifetime V.I.P. warrantee left me breathless. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Optic, Inexpensive, Great Company I worked several years for a Sporting Goods store and when I was in the market for a quality optic for my rifle, I chose Vortex over competitors. I chose them originally because I knew of there customer service I was trained on and their lifetime warranty service. After taking mounting my scope, it felt like cheating when I would sight up on a buck or boar. having 6-18x adjustability allowed me to bring my target well within view and connect solid headshots over and over. The glass is clear and I didn't have to break the bank to have a solid optic I can count on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mid-Long Range Scope Originally put on a .308win for mid range groundhog hunting, I soon found that this was my go-to scope for shooting steel out to 700yd! The 44mm objective bell is just big enough to let plenty of light in, yet allow for easy fitting with most rings as well. In addition to the excellent gathering of light, the clarity of the scope was unbelievable for the price! Even on early mornings with the dew at its fullest, there was never any fogging, or trouble with clarity when I had some fog downrange laying across my targets. I am excited to take the scooe, and gun out together this year for rifle season, as the dead hold BDC is a little different than my usual favorite of mil dots. The simplification should make for a deadly accurate trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent varmit scope! I bought the 6-18x44 AO 6 months ago and have shot hundreds of rounds through it! I placed it on my custom AR and zeroed it only once and has continued to maintain the zero dispite being taken on a dozen hunting trips. I was able to make consistent shots at 500 yards with the bdc rediticle and harvest multiple fur bearing animals with it. The optics are extremely clear and crisp even in low light conditions that outdoorsman are accustomed too. The magnification is execellent and the AO adjustment maintains accuracy and focus from 25 yards to infinity. Overall this scope is the best budget rifle scope I have owned in my life and with vortex's lifetime warranty I don't have to worry about owning another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome customer support I recently had issues with a CF2 6x18x44 AO not holding zero. First time around sent scope in to vortex and they promptly repaired and sent back. After less than 100 rounds scope blew a seal and zero went south. No questions asked they promptly replaced with a new scope. I cannot say enough for the customer service, service dept and the warranty. Special thanks to Brian and Larry who assisted in making things right. There is no question more Vortex products will be in my future.

I'm looking for a scope and mount on my .223 Savage 11 Hog Hunter. What mount and rings do you recommend. Also, I plan to varmint hunt, especially hog, in perhaps low light conditions. Do you recommend the DEAD HOLD BDC or VPLEX reticle?

Asked by: Dash
I recommend a 1 piece picatinny rail from www.egwguns.com and a set of our high height 1 inch Pro Rings for your setup. I prefer the BDC reticle as it allows for reference points for shooting different distances.

I've ordered a Crossfire II 6-18x44 AO scope with the V-Brite recticle. I am planning on putting this on a Winchester Model 70 Black Shadow in .270 caliber. Which Hunter rings would you recommend for this setup?

Asked by: simpsotn
I recommend using our Pro Rings as they are a better quality ring than the Hunter Rings, and you can use the high height for your setup.

what grain bullet is the bdc recticle set for with a 30-06 ?

Asked by: Tury
The BDC reticle is a generic reticle that works well with all calibers. There are too many other factors to consider besides bullet weight which is why I recommend using our LRBC program to find what yardages the reticle works out to on your setup: http://www.vortexoptics.com/content/lrbc.

Is the Crossfire II scope meant for high power rifles and recoil or smaller rimfire type rifles?

Asked by: jhadlock
If mounted in a good quality set of rings to our torque specs of 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite, the Crossfire II scopes will work on larger caliber rifles.

How do I know which Vortex scopes are good to use with AR-10's? Is this Crossfire II one that would work well with an AR-10 for general hunting and tactical purposes?

Asked by: ADADE7
Choosing a scope is determined from what you are going to be using it for and what features you want in your scope. All of our scopes would work on an AR 10, some will work better for certain applications than others. If you like the features of the Crossfire II, then it would be a good choice for you.

What grain bullet is the bdc reticle set for with a .308?

Asked by: Scarshooter.
The BDC in the scope will probably work best with a 150-168gr bullet. They are set to be sighted in at 200yrds (about 1.25"-1.5" high st 100yrds). After that the BDC lines will be close to every 100yrds after that.
