Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Durability I mounted this scope on my AR 6.8SPC II. I went on a hog hunt last weekend in West Texas, killed 1st hog Friday night. Then on Saturday afternoon while driving over some really rough terrain my rifle was ejected from the UTV right into a pile of rocks, went back to camp to test fire and was in disbelief, the scope was dead on. I went out and took another hog right at dark thanks to the lighted reticle. Thanks for building a great scope at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds zero with 300wsm! Great scope! I bought this scope because of the VBrite reticle for deer hunting. I actually sent it back because I couldn’t keep it zeroed with ammo that I knew grouped really well with my old scope. Vortex sent it back with a form that said it was ok. When I received the same scope back I was furious. After talking with Josh @ Vortex, he suggested the rings might have been over torqued because Vortex recommends less ring torque than other scope companies. I bought an inch-lb. torque screwdriver, a new picatinny rail to replace the old windage adjustable base, and a set of Vortex pro rings and remounted the scope to the Vortex specs. I didn’t expect this to fix the problem but it did. I zeroed it immediately and am now getting great groups and the scope holds zero very well. I have complete confidence that if the scope had indeed been defective that Vortex customer service would’ve made it right. This scope is as good as others I have that cost more. It’s great in low light and the VBrite dot is perfect in the woods when the crosshairs get a little fuzzy. Just don’t overtorque those ring screws!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why no marketing comments on 1 star rating Just ready to hit buy a Vortex hog 56mm when I saw a review by Roger a military guy in Germany with 1 star a month ago in Dec 2017. (Rachel in marketing commented on another review 7 days ago). Vortex needs to comment as to what action is or was taken or being worked. Having been an active duty in Germany it is difficult to get company's attention, so Vortex needs to address his issues or explain in a comment why only his email comment and no followup explanation. Am very happy with my Vortex PST ffp and am ready to buy another Vortex product when Roger's issues or explanation GI overseas complication us resolved or properly addressed.
