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.

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.

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.
