Overview

The Golden Eagle HD offers a unique set of features specifically designed for F Class and Bench Rest competition shooters. The 15-60x magnification range, ultra-precise 1/8 MOA adjustments and extremely fine, second focal plane reticle options help maximize precision on known-distance long-range targets. All these features and more are complimented by a top-tier optical system making for a super-sharp target picture down range and the ability to read mirage and other wind indicators accurately. Equally impressive, the Golden Eagle weighs in at a relatively light 29.5 ounces, helping shooters adhere to strict competition weight limits. When you’re going for gold in F Class or Bench Rest, go for the Golden Eagle to top your rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Amazing None Better! I have this mounted to my new Savage 10BA Stealth 6.5 Creedmoor. I had this on Bulls eye in 4 shots using Hornaday ELD-X 143 Grain ammo. The scope /rifle combo is just amazing. I had to chip around the bulls eye to see where I was hitting as I kept shooting through the same holes! The only thing that could make it better is an illuminated reticle. This is NOT a hunting scope filed of view is too tight. You can hardly use it at anything below 50 yards. For precision shooting the Golden Eagle HD is just perfect. This is my 3rd Vortex scope and I am sold....no better optics out there. I will be replacing my Nikons on two of my other rifles with Vortex as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most powerful, clear and easy to use scope. I use this scope, after much anticipation on a variety of rifles. From 5.56 up to 7mm Rem mag. It certainly lets you know where you and your loads are shooting. I thought that 40x would be adequate. But I am wide open at 60x often. Very clear optics. I was concerned about this. I have been very pleased. This is the ultimate target scopethat I have ever used or seen. I am very, very pleased. Everything works as stated, and brings optics a closer step to perfection. I do own various other Vortex scopes. They have all exceeded my expectations. The Golden Eagle has done that by a factor of 10. Very impressive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great F-Class scope Bought this for F-Class and boy was I surprised how great it worked. Glass is exceptionally clear for the high magnification. I usually keep it between 30-40x depending on the mirage and it really helps you dial in on the x ring. I actually had it on 60x at 1000yrds this weekend but the conditions were absolutely perfect. I used it to shoot this 800yrd target 2 weeks ago. I'm a novice at F-class so I was pretty happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for solo work Bought scope recently for my 6mm-06 Ackley. I have used a 60x spotting scope for 500-1k range shooting. Now I am able to quickly assess shot placement without the back and forth I have been accustom to with the use of a spotting scope. The scope is lighter than I expected, but still feels solid. Parallax adjustment seems to stop at 600 yards, however a decent 1k focus is still easily achievable. The male threads on the Aperture Stop Ring seemed flawed, even damaged the female threads on the sunshade, objective cover no longer screws smoothly into the sunshade. This is ok because I use a flip-cover. All in all, a great scope for long range. (And amazing at 100yard "showoffmanship") Attachments were disappointing for a scope of this quality, but the scope itself gets 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of Demo Model Golden Eagle I was fortunate enough to have the use of a Golden Eagle Scope for our Western Canada F-Class Championships back in July. Glass: As good as any Nightforce I have looked through. My eyes did not get tired over the course of the 4 days looking through this scope. Reticle design: for me this is the reticle of all reticles.....it has everything I want/need. Turrets: I'll start with the good on these. Tracking was dead on. Windage clicks were positive with good movement. Now to the bad. I am not sure if it is only because this is a demo model and it may have had the elevation knob adjusted by everyone that has touched it but this one was very mushy, clicks were not nearly as positive as the windage dial was. At times it was hard to determine whether or not the 1/8min up/down adjustment had actually taken place as I could not always feel the click when adjusting. When I got the rifle zeroed with the scope on, I had a hard time setting both the Elevation and Windage knobs to zero as the caps would grab the rubber O rings and turn the dial. For the Elevation I was able to finally pull the cap up and off of the turret and place it to zero. The windage cap had a harder time coming off and I did not proceed trying as I did not want to damage anything. When I finally did get the cap to turn and set it at zero I had already introduced a bunch of windage clicks into the scope so my wind zero ended up being a minute out from everyone else. Possible solutions/reasons for these problems: If the caps had grease under them and has since been wiped off, this would make the cap grab onto the O-ring. Overall I was very pleased with the scopes performance and clarity. I have since had the pleasure of handling a new scope and the Windage and Elevation clicks were very positive as would be expected. I look forward to getting my own Golden Eagle in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy one already! I’ve been running the golden eagle for almost 3 seasons of f-class shooting now and absolutely love it. I normal shoot 300 yard competition but have in fact shot 8,9, and 1000 yard competition as well and can contest that it tracks perfectly holds zero without a single issue. I have many fellow shooters who run other optics nightforce and sightron etc and on poor shooting days with a lot of mirage they have to power down to 30 power when I’m still fine at the 50-60x. I strongly feel for the $ and the quality you get with this optic it can not be beat hands down and highly suggest it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great package Got this a few days ago and it came with a sunshade, a different turret, and some covers. The scope is great for ranges 800+yards. Easy to sight in and adjust the zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Worth Every Penny When this scope released I was very interested in purchasing one for a couple of reasons and decided to make the purchase. I wanted a scope that I could use for competition shooting down the road that I knew would be a solid and have a GREAT warranty and this fit the bill. Additionally I wanted to get this scope as I'm an avid reloader and frequently test loads for various rifles and wanted to be able to easily see my target. So I mounted the scope in a quality quick detach scope mount to allow me to transfer it from rifle to rifle as fast and as easily as possible so now I can clearly see my target and call my shots without having to utilize a spotting scope as I had previously done. Testing the tracking of the scope by shooting box drills repeatedly in my accurized 6.5 Creedmoor has shown excellent tracking with zero discernable backlash in the adjustment. This scope as others have stated does have a fairly generous eye box, and does have spectacular clarity especially for the price and does so in a rugged yet fairly light package. I have multiple Vortex products and won't hesitate to buy another vortex come the time I need another optic!
