Pursuit X1 Rifle Scope
Super clear and bright
I have been looking through many scopes for a couple years.
I was dead set on getting a vortex as the ones i looked through were very clear and the targets just popped out .
My gun is a savage .308 10fp I started with a nikon buckmaster 3-9X40 good clear scope fat reticle though.
It would cover a 3/4" square at 100 yards. a bit tough making out exactly where my bullet holes were in paper at 100 yards.
I stepped up to another scope that clarity was just as good a 4-16x40 the cross hairs covered only 1/2" at 100 yards and my groups shrank. And i now have mill dot reticle. I could make out the bullet holes much easier now.
I wanted another mill dot scope but more power and even smaller reticle . But more clarity was tops on my list.
I figured Bass pro had vortex..When i arrived i looked through a Pursuit X1 6-24x44.
WOW cheap and clear..and clear at 24X if you adjust it correctly..and long eye relief, very easy to acquire the target.
I mounted it and went shooting..only 31 shots through it so far..Hits the same spot at 20X as it does at 10X zoom. I stuck 4 rounds in a ragged hole at 100 yards off a bag. It was a five shot group and 1 flier opened it up to .650" center to center.
Reticle covers less than 1/4" at 100 yards.
I can see BB holes in the target at 100 yards easily.
Taking it to 200 soon. can't wait.
I love the clarity of this scope, if you are near a Bass Pro go look through one.
My 4-16x40 was just as clear as some shooting friends older $1000 Leupolds Confirmed by them using my 4-16 as a spotter scope..sad.
This X 1 is much clearer and brighter.

I'll start by saying that I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for." I've heard that to be especially true when it comes to buying a scope...
I went into our local Bass Pro wanting to buy a nice riflescope for a Savage .243. My goal was to spend around $500 and, in return, have great optics that would allow me to reach out to 450 yards max. The gun/setup will be used for hunting, but mostly target fun. Admittedly, I'm a little bit of a brand snob and had planned on splurging on a Leupold VX3 or Zeiss Terra. I was amazed when the salesperson let me look through the Leup, Zeiss, and Pursuit (which he recommended). Look, I'm not saying the Leup and Zeiss aren't better scopes - they are. What I am saying is that if you're the everyday sportsman like myself, then you will be PLEASED to purchase this scope and save $350. The differences are minute. I also looked through a comparable Bushnell and Nikon. Even putting costs aside, they were easily outdone by the Pursuit.
Sighting in was a breeze and the setup is now a tack-driver with plenty of eye relief. Don't be scared by the price - this is a quality optic!

Exceptional for price!
Very pleased with the performance of the 6-24x44 PursuitX1 I had purchased.
It has one of the finest reticles I have used and the clarity of these optics compare and in some cases are beyond the quality of much more costly optics.
Turret adjustments return positively/repeatedly thus far from ranges out to 550 yds. and back again.
I have been shooting it on a 6mm taget rifle with excellent results.
When comparing to some of my high end optics....it is difficult to justify the hundreds of dollars more I have spent for that "name brand" on some of them.
I will buy another with the confidence of the warranty they offer.
The reason for 4 instead of 5 star rating is I have not tested it in extreme cold weather as of yet.

Not to my standards
Scope was bright and clear from 3 to 8 power with nice field of view. From 8 to 12 power the view got more cloudy/fuzzy the higher you advanced the power. Could barely see through the scope at 12 power. Tried to adjust focus and eye relief with no improvement.
