Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect on a .450 Bushmaster When I got my .450 upper, I mounted another brand of scope, set the eye relief, and proceeded to sight it in @ 25yds. First shot produced a half moon above my right eye - didn't realize the recoil & short eye relief were a bad combo on this thumper. So, after a lot of investigation, I bought the HP 2-8x32 with its 4+ inches of eye relief & have been a happy camper ever since. Not only with the long eye relief, but also with the crystal clear clarity, resolution, controls & over all quality. Shooting the 'box', it returned to absolute zero. Hands down - a great scope. Bought a 3-12x42 HP for my .25-45 Sharps upper - can't wait to wring it out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope Fantastic Value This is my second Vortex scope. My first is a Diamondback 1.75x5 mounted on a Ruger American Ranch Rifle in .300 AAC. This one is mounted on a Ruger American Predator in .308. Side by side comparison, there is none, this model is far superior (not knocking the 1.75x5). As great as my Vortex Diamondback is, the Diamondback HP is even gbetter. The clarity of the glass is second to none, the side parallax focus makes dialing in the perfect shot easy and excellent eye relief, all that and a great value. It mates perfectly with the Ruger American Predator. Vortex, you've hit another homerun! Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is more like a 2.4x or 3x on the low end. I just received a 2-8x32 Diamondback HP riflescope that I bought online after trying out the Diamondback 2-7x35 in a store. (They didn't have the 2-8x32 in stock.) On paper it sounded ideal...great glass, great coatings, nice zoom range, and adjustable parallax for close-range shooting with a .22LR. I haven't mounted it yet, so I don't know how well it tracks or holds zero, but I'm disappointed in the quality of the image at the low end of the zoom range. Basically I think Vortex is misrepresenting the scope. It's supposed to be a 2-8x, but when I go wide the maximum field of view is achieved at about 2.4x or so. From there down to 2x the image gets smaller, but the field of view doesn't actually improve. (Instead the whole picture shrinks.) This makes it pointless to go any lower than roughly 2.4x. It would be more honest to call this a 2.4-8x scope and limit the zoom at the point of maximum field of view. Also if I zoom to 8x and adjust the parallax so the image is sharp, then start zooming wider, at 4x the image is still okay, but at 3x the edges are going soft, and at 2x the edges of the image are positively blurry. For a scope that seems intended for use on a hunting rifle, it's kind of pointless to have blurry edges on the zoom setting intended for max field of view--it basically means that there's little point going below 3x for hunting...and if I wanted a scope with a minimum 3x zoom I could have gone with a 3-9x instead of what is effectively a 3-8x. I posted about this on a forum and a few other people mentioned that theirs behaves the same way, so it seems like a design flaw rather than a faulty unit. The place I bought it from doesn't allow returns on optics so I'm kind of stuck with it...hopefully the mechanical bits are worth the price--the fancy glass and coatings don't help when the lens design is bad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had high hopes... Well, I have to be honest...right now I'm very disappointed in the Diamondback HP. When I received it, the cover was shattered and my initial thought was that it took a heck of an impact somewhere along the way. The scope itself looked OK, but the parallax knob seemed a little rough. The glass did look clear and bright, and images were crisp. Having Vortex' good reputation in the back of my mind, I didn't exchange it with the retailer. I emailed Vortex for a new scope cover, which was immediately sent. I mentioned the possible damage, but was assured that if I had problems to contact service and it would be taken care of. Now, after about 100 rounds with it mounted on my Mini-14, the reticle is canted about 5 degrees. I'm sending it back tomorrow, and hopefully Vortex' warranty reputation lives up to its billing. I'm asking that they replace it given the sketchy history...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update: Had High Hopes OK, so I sent the scope back to Vortex. It took a few weeks, in fact, a little longer than usual according to their customer service rep. She was extremely apologetic about that when she called me to talk about the scope. She told me that the scope would not be replaced, but rather repaired. I was disappointed, but she also told me that the repair basically made the scope better than new and would likely hold up better than a new one. Hmm, okay, I'll take your word for it. So far, so good, it seems to be holding up fine on my Mini-14. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Vortex! I bought a new rifle and this scope for Maine deer hunting this year. I have had another scope for years, on another rifle, that cost a bit less than my new Vortex. I always liked my old scope and would often show people how great it was. I had no idea what I was talking about or what I was missing.I immediately removed my old scope from my other rifle and set it aside for my second Vortex I will be ordering as soon as I can. Crisp, Clear and I have the BDC dialed into my specific round using the LRBC calc. A great scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and light I was looking for a lightweight scope for my daughter's rifle, this this scope really tops off the rifle well. For bullseye shooting, parallax adjustment was a requirement, since so much of what we shoot with the .22s is at 50' (too close for most fixed focus scopes). We also shoot some NRA silhouette matches, so we need to be able to adjust the focus. I love my Crossfire II AO scope, but I'm glad I bought this one with side focus; it's SO MUCH easier to use, which is especially helpful for a youth shooter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice 2-8 , no need for a 3-9 just received this scope , very clear images at all power levels . The side focus give you a close depth reading which helps in bullet drop . Heavy , yes it is but not to bad.

I have a diamondback HP 2-8x32 BDC riflescope. l would d like to know the best method for centering the reticles within the scope tube. Want to align the barrel and scope bore centers of axis during the mounting process. Scope has been previously used.

Asked by: Nomad
In order to center the reticle just take the scope and put it up to a mirror and look through it as you normally would. You will see two sets of crosshairs. Adjust your turrets until you line them up and only see one set. This will optically center your reticle. You can then bore sight it once it's mounted on your gun and should be good to go from there!
