Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Sweet Scope I was looking for a nice 1x4 or 1x6 scope for my 300 BO. After researching, researching and more researching, I bought a Strike Eagle from Cabelas. Knowing the Vortex is veteran owned, has a great warranty and durable sealed the deal. After mounting it, I went to the range to site in. Using Hornady American Gunner ammo at 100yards, it took a few minutes( 20 rounds) to hit paper. After adjusting elevation and windage, the next 100 rounds were hitting dead center. The Strike Eagle is easy to focus. The reticle is super clear to see. The one thing the Strike Eagle needs is to go on a diet. It's definitely on the hefty side compared to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice optic but... I have put roughly 400 round down range with this scope. It is easy to set up and works great... However, at x7 and x8 with x8 being the worst. You have to be spot on the scope or the picture gets wall eyed or give all together. 1-6x it's perfect. I do like the reticle over the 1-6 but to me x8 is worthless as you have to be so precise looking down the scope. I read those reviews as well about the last two power adjustments before purchase and knew about the problem before hand. Over all satisfied with the purchase but if you ever come up with a fix for x7 and x8 I'll be happy to send it in..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice optic, but bummed on the high end magnificati After purchasing the 1-6x Strike Eagle, I had to have the 1-8x for my AR-.308. I love the shorter length and lighter weight, as the big AR needs the weight reduction, but dang, the high end 7x - 8x power sighting really is a downer. It is so hard to line up your eye with the reticle without getting black shadows all around. Sometimes I even think I left the scope caps closed and have to check them before realigning my eye to the reticle. As far as a 1-6x scope, this is just as good as the 1x6 Strike Eagle, but dang, I paid a heck of a lot more for it and I'm not getting my money's worth for the extra dollars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing scope for the price! I bought this scope after trying it out on two of my friend’s rifles. I had previously shot a Razor HD 1x6 from vortex on a loaner rifle but knew I could not afford one on my own. After looking through the Strike Eagle 1x8 on my friend’s rifle I knew that this was the scope for me. Seeing as I shoot 3 Gun, I knew that the 8 power scope would get me to the far targets a lot better than these original 6 power. After running the scope for the last week I can tell you that it is not the quality of a Razor but it is dang close to it! For the price you are going to be hard-pressed to find something better than this Strike Eagle 1x8!!! Highly recommend!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good scope for the price I purchased this scope for its variable power range. Glass is good and clarity is good. The only thing I noticed is at full 8x power you have a little bit of wash out if your eye is not perfectly centered and aligned with eyepiece. Another thing is the cap for the battery department was over tightened and I had to take pliers to get it apart the first time. I put some anti-seize on the threads and this took care of the problem. The illuminated reticle works great and should preform well in low light hunting situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great scope. When I saw Vortex was coming out with a new Strike Eagle in 1-8, I knew I wanted one as soon as they were available. I was a little disappointed Optics Planet wasn't the first one out there to get them. I had to purchase from another source and received it a full 2 weeks before Optics Planet received them in stock. I have the 1-6 and can't say enough great things about it. I can say, the 1-8 is even better. The new reticle is an upgrade. The 1-6 has a problem with a very stiff rotation on the magnification knob. The SV-4 throw lever is a must have on that one. The new one, not so much. Much easier rotation. Still going to get one for this one as well. I know the glass is exactly the same on both scopes, the new one looks even brighter though. I've shot about 500 rounds through it. I have it mounted to a Daniel Defense DDM4 V11 with a Vortex Precision Cantilever mount and it's held zero perfectly. This is a great scope. Great magnification. Great eye relief. Great reticle and somehow they made it even lighter. Buy this scope, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass; better warranty. I bought this to put on an AR15 with some accurized stuff. Wow. The 8x is far better than I am. The reticle pops and leads my eye right on the target. Easy to zero. I haven't stretched it beyond 200 yards, so this is just initial impressions. 1x is easy to use with both eyes open. A little fish-eye, but not too bad. I like this a lot. Great glass. A word about the warranty. I put this scope on a LaRue mount which specified 30 in-lbs of torque. Above 6x, my scope was blurry. I contacted Vortex and was told I had classic symptoms of over-tightened rings. What did Vortex do? They sent me a new scope. With the correct torque (D'oh!), the image is clear all the way to 8x. My mistake. They made it right. This is my 4th Vortex scope and it won't be the last. Thanks, guys.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ranging with new 1x8 reticle With this reticle you determine the range to the target HOW? If Vortex would simply add hashes subtending 19 inches on each of those holdover lines, we could do fast ranging off this reticle. Better yet, eliminate the rest of those lines and use wind DOTS to reduce clutter and obstruction. Any or all of these changes would cost nothing in terms of manufacturing after set-up and would transform this optic into a high value contender against the MK6, the VH-6HD and others. I own and love Vortex products and have been waiting for this scope. But until a fast ranging reticle is offered in this optic, it is mainly appropriate only for KD (i.e. non-defensive) shooting purposes. This seriously limits an otherwise excellent product.

Should I get the 2 inch offset or 3 inch offset for the mount made for this scope? What are the advantages/ disadvantages of both?

Asked by: EWG26
For most shooters, I would recommend going with the 2" offset. The advantages/disadvantages comes down to comfortably being able to shoot. If you like your stock all the way our on an AR-style rifle and your head will be farther back, the 3" would be a better choice. However, most people hold their head a little closer in which case the 2" will be more comfortable.

Will the CVP-30 have enough height to work with the SE-1824-1?

Asked by: GaryT
The CVP-30 will work with the Strike Eagle 1-8x24. I would recommend this mount if you are planning on putting it on a flat top AR style rail. If you are putting it on a bolt action, I would recommend our 30mm Pro Rings in Medium height.
