Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a buy! This 6-24 scope is the Best Buy I have found. Its optics are clear enough I don't need my spotting scope out to 200 yards to see the bullet holes. I have 2 of these and one is on a 300 Remington ultra mag. The heavy recoil of this 6.5 lb mountain rifle does not faze it. The 4" eye relief prevents scope rash also. The resettable turrets allow easy zeroing as I experiment with different loads. This scope delivers results that cost 2-3 times as much in other brands. The quality in this is remarkable. I will be adding several more to my collection. This is a second focal plane scope do the crosshairs remain consistent regardless of magnification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Do-It-All Optic I was looking for an optic that could do everything on my general purpose .308 - targets, hunting, whatever. I had another brand of scope with a BDC reticle, but if I wanted to try my hand at some precision or tactical rifle, that scope was not going to work well. After many months of searching, and having been super impressed with a previous Vortex purchase, I went for the HS-T. I have not been disappointed! The clarity is excellent. The versatility of the reticle, along with the ability to easily dial up and down and even make a zero-stop, has made this a great choice. I would not hesitate to recommend this optic to someone looking for a solid do-everything optic at a very good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scope! I put this scope on my Tikka T3 SL 7mm rem mag. I have turned this gun into my elk (and other larger big game) rifle. This scope has performed flawlessly for me. As a relatively new shooter when it comes to turrets and long range, this scope has made my life so easy. I was quickly able to sight it in, install the zero-stops, and have confidence in my shooting because i can clearly see my target with the range of power this scope has. I love the fact that I no longer have to mess with a BDC and how uncluttered this scope is with its highly visible but clean reticle. This was my first vortex and I am in the process of switching everything I own over to vortex optics!
