Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great piece of glass I put this scope on a custom built A.R for my now 11 year old daughter,which she used to take her first deer with last season.The clarity is phenomenal, the value I feel is the best on the market.Vortexes commitment to quality isworld class.We do an annual July 4th cookout and we all bring plenty of firearms,while we were shooting rifles,everybody wanted to use my daughters rifle when we were blowing up tannerite because of the amazing clarity this scope provides. I have a friend who pro staffs for a competitor and could have gotten me any piece of glass I want at his cost,only problem is,it isn't a Vortex !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Checked all the boxes This is the scope that had everything I was looking for: long eye relief, parallax adjustment, and a good range of magnification for all purposes. I regularly hunt in the pacific northwest where i'm often trudging through the deep brush, with 75 yards being the longest shot I've taken in that environment, but am also a 3 hour drive from open mule deer country. Having a scope that could be optimized for both short range hunting and med-long range hunting was a must for me, as I don't have a budget for both a blacktail rifle and a mule deer rifle. This is the scope that fit the bill, due mainly to the parallax adjustment and the 3X low end magnification -not a common combo. I do find the scope to be on the heavy side, but that comes with the versatile features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my kiddo... My son wanted me to talk to my friends at vortex to get him a scope for his 17HMR. I sent a few emails back and forth and at the recommendation of the staff I decided on this diamondback hp unit with the BDC reticle. Setting it up at zero was easy and with a small dope card in hand my son couldn't be happier with it. He has easily put a couple thousand rounds through his rifle with this scope and loves it. Now he wants another scope like it for his first AR. Kudos to the team at vortex for making a great product and for sending out some swag for my son for his first rifle. Well done!!
