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 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 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 Best F class scope period. I've been competing with a Golden Eagle in F-TR for the last year and half now. There almost aren't words that can describe how amazing this scope is. The clarity, the turrets, the reticle and having it include the aperture ring to lengthen the depth of focus to aid in reading mirage are all absolutely perfect. It's performance in less than optimal lighting conditions is also bar none. Twice now, Ive shot clean scores in cloudy, dark, rainy conditions. Let the performance of this scope do the talking though, back to back national championships in F class and the current 1000 yard 20 shot string record should be all you need to know about how reliable and repeatable the Golden Eagle is. I even got to have Ian (engineer who designed it) score for me while I shot my first 1000 yard clean which was a National Record at that time by an active service member!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very clear and good reticle design Glass is better than my NF, would have given it 5 stars if the clicks were better

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Just received this scope. After ensuring it was on the right rings for a Ruger Percision, first shot ensured I was on paper. Next 3 at 100 yds, had me zeroed at half inch POI, Took it to 300 yd range, using 1000 yrd steel targets, every shot was hitting exactly where I put it. Not just on the steel, but center body mass, head shot, shoulder shot. I couldn't miss. I would recommend this once to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you need I’ve used this rifle scope for about a year now - and it’s exactly what you need. The mag values are clear all the way through, the tracking is dead on, the glass is like it isn’t there. I fell off a mountain, busted my scope up - sent it in for repairs. I offered to pay, claimed full responsibility and they shipped me a brand new one, no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of features and extras in the box The Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x has features that the F-class and Long Range Benchrest shooter really appreciates. It has a power range of 15x-60x with a 52mm objective. Vortex has kept the weight as low as possible and the cost very reasonable, I would say the best long range competition scope for the dollar..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up to .338 lap As a novice long range shooter i have been excited about the performance of this scope. My previous scope didnt hold up to the recoil of the .338 lap. So far im a little over 100 rnds with this scope and its true as the day i purchased. One of my favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of magnification for the money I Purchased one for my .338 Lapua build and it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More scope than I am shooter I purchased this scope with the enhanced reticle to put on top of my 338lm and it is much more scope then I am ever going to be shooter but with 60x it brings in targets to my old eyes better then I had hoped. The glass is what you would expect from Vortex in the fact it is clear, fast and very user friendly. I do not comp shoot but I am able to stretch out my shots to 3/4 of a mile with ease and will push it once I find a longer place to go. I purchased this scope for a couple of reasons, one of which is the fantastic service I have gotten from two other Vortex scopes I have and This one also exceeds the expectations I had for it. If you have a need for a horizontal telescope to aim your shots, you can not go wrong with this unit (as with all the Vortex scopes I have used) I would HIGHLY recommend this scope if you have a need for it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Eagle ECR-1 set on Rem 700/308 Scope is flaw. Reticle needs to be illuminated, ECR-1 is very fine and without bright backdrop you loose reticle in shadows or dark(er) targets. Vortex customer service is excellent. High power scopes will always have mirage/ heat signals in midday/ high sun shooting. Images will appear blurred....just expect this if you decide to purchase - nothing is wrong with the scope. Definitely a benchrest/ target scope. Vortex does not zero their scopes, so you will have to bore sight it then adjust as needed- then reset your turrets to zero to be doped in @ 109-110 yrds. Make sure you are using the proper ammo /grain. I was shooting 150 grain and my rounds tumbled..changed to 168 grain and had no issues. One of my 308s loves 150 the other loves 168. Value is 5* because I received a military discount..40% off (Experticity). Wolf1 SRT...Peace Guaranteed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best F1 scope at this price point This was my second Vortex purchase and I couldn't be more impressed. I bought this for my .338 Lapua and have nothing but good things to say about it. Great clarity even at high magnification, incredibly easy to use and I am loving the enhanced reticle at long range..... I am now looking at switching out my leupold vx3 on my 7mm to a gen 2 pst for hunting season..... Super happy with Vortex quality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes This scope was the tool I needed to get competitive at 1000 yard FTR class and win the silver at the Michigan Long Range Regional 2016. I had just received the scope a couple weeks before the match and was very excited to return to Camp Grayling in September for the Regional Match after shooting at Grayling in July with a scope that did well years ago at 1000 yard sling and jacket, but not at F-Class !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great airgun benchrest scope Bought this scope for 100 meter airgun target shooting and never even regretted it a little bit. The scope is able to retain its sharpness up to the 60x and the reticle is really nice. Definitely a recommendation for airgun benchrest use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last Long range scope you ever have to buy. "Vortex Golden Eagle HD" I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon at Vortex optics headquarters. I got my hands on one of Golden Eagle scopes. The first thing I noticed was it had very nice turrets. They were good size and had good grips. I figure if you slept on your hand the night before a match, you would still be able to operate them. They were also clearly marked, so no more excuses if you turn it the wrong way. I almost had a heart attack when I found out how much they pound the scopes in testing. I will not give specifics but it's intense. They are built like tanks. You can also get their flip up scope covers separately. The cool thing about these is you can send in your ballistics and they will make a drop chart for them. So you flip open the cover and on the inside right in front of your eyes is your custom chart. Did I mention it's 15 to 60 power with HD glass? Compare a HDTV with your old non-HDTV and you get the idea. I was privileged to see the operation at Vortex Optics Headquarters and got to meet most of the engineers. There skill and knowledge impressed me. It was like being in a cyber- security command bunker. It's a mind blowing operation with great a highly skilled people. If you want a great scope, look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best glass I have ever seen! I shot in the Nationals up in Lodi Wisconsin the guy that developed this scope won gold with it so I bought one and I sure am glad I did what a incredible scope thanks team Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality #1 Was very hesitant at first to purchase this but I couldn't have made a better choice! As good as any other glass I have looked through. Eyes didn't get tired over the course of the day. The turret tracking was on. Clicks are positive. Reticle design is just awesome for me. Simple but effective. I'm very pleased with the scopes performance and clarity.

And the first time out hunting with it, i was telling my friends how much i liked it and showing it off and then i dropped it , now got another one back true the warranty . I don’t know any other company that would give tou this kind of good service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great F Class Scope You simply cannot do better than this scope. In fact I have sold my other (most popular brand) competition scopes and use Vortex Golden Eagle exclusively. Sight picture acquisition, ease of eye box use and the ECR reticle is head and shoulders above the competition. Great job Vortex

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch I purchased this score purely for 600/1000 IBS benchrest and after one season it was flawless, tracks excellent and handles mirage great, very clear and bright at all powers. I decided to buy a 3rd one for my other rifle. Can't go wrong, great price and warranty...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex #1 Wow I have a few PST's and love them. My Main goal is tight groups. I reload with top notch components. Lapua and Norma brass and SMK and eld and scenar bullets. Tight groups is everything to me. .275" is my best in 308 and that's good! So enter this scope. It makes repeatability on point of aim sooo much easier. Even with my 24 power pst it was not perfectly repeatable. Now with this at 50 power I can for surely say that every time I take aim it is in the exact same spot. This has helped groupings tremendously! A stable rest is crucial at that magnification as every movement is amplified. Though it should be as those movements would be the same for the muzzle! Not just for competition it is an awesome tack driving scope! You don't need a spotting scope with this either! So to sum it up this helps by taking doubt on point of aim out of the equation. Now I con concentrate on bullet speed and case head spacing and seating depth. Your groups with improve especially if you shoot past 100 yards. At 200 and 300 it's even more so effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic F class scope for the money I picked up the first Golden Eagle to arrive in Australia in mid-2016 and have since bought a 2nd model, running both SCR and ECR reticles. I don't really have anything negative to say about the scope. I've run both of them from 50 metres out to 800 metres and both track fine. The turrets on both scopes were a little mushy to start with, but with use they have both firmed up and become more tactile as the lubrication has worked in. Parallax is easy to adjust and this scope is SUPER easy to get behind. I've run both March and Nightforce and the eyebox on the Golden Eagle is far superior to both, I don't have to strain to find a clear sight picture at all and have run the scope at 60x in the right conditions. Optically I find it slightly superior to the Nightforce Competition, but that's just my eyes. The only scope I have viewed which is optically superior is the new March Highmaster 10-60x56, but it's also double the price. Overall I'm very happy with the Golden Eagle and would recommend it to any serious long range or F-class shooter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rifle scope ever This rifle scope, it was something that I need. I shoot at known distances in various competition so I chose the SCR-1 reticle. I closed the distance of 1215 yards with a .308 Win and 10 hits in target. Just great !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scopes I have 3 rifles with the Viper PA scopes and one with the Golden Eagle. The nicest scopes I have ever had. Never a problem, Very Clear. With my Golden eagle I have no need for spotting scope.
