Vortex Diamondback Rifle Scope
I own two and will be getting two more soon
I got my first Vortex about a year and half ago for my muzzle loader. That year the gun scope killed two elk. One from me and other from my ex-wife. I pulled out gun after sitting in safe for a year or so and it still drives the bull shot after shot. I've had several different scopes on this gun before, none would hold zero as good as this one. I also put a second on a .308 scout and the group is less than a quarter (4shots) @ 100 yards. Can pull rifle right now and repeat that with no fuss. I have a rifle which needs a new scope and a Vortex will be the scope I get. Also have another rifle I'm going to get this spring and Vortex will be on top.

I recently purchased a diamondback 4x12x40 and mounted it on a rem 700 action with a douglas barrel in 308 mounted in a Mcmillian stock. I was limited by fiancial ends which was deciding factor in this purchase. How ever after zeroing in at 100 yards using my hand loads (168 gr sierra HPBT match king in front of 42 gr h48950 I started to work the scope using the BDC. Now for the surprise.Clarity was exceptional and more surprising using the bdc/mildot this scope shot as well as my shepard on my rem 700 300 mag. Consistantly was able to take out clay pidgeons out to 500 yards.Testing the scope yet again I rezeroed to a 200 yard zreo and repeated the process. Same results.Something to be said for a scope that can shoot side by said with a scope 4x its price. Low light gathering was not near as good as my shepard but then a 40 mm objective compared to a 50 mm explains that. I would in a heart beat recommend this scope to all . Excellent scope at a very reasonable price.

Best choice upon review of offered industrywide
I had never hunted or owned a rifle before, until this year. I purchased a used rifle which needed a scope mounted on it. I researched industry-wide for the best value of both quality and price. The main reason which turned the tide in Vortex favor is their offering of a Vortex VIP Warranty. I'm still learning how to hunt and use the scope to it's full potential but, I whole-heartedly suggest everyone in the market to buy a similar product to take a good look at Vortex products as they offer the best benefits of quality & customer support. When it comes time to make another purchase, I won't look any further than the Vortex Brand.

A few years back I started my quest to find a nice rifle scope for a good price. I started looking at well known brands and then came across the Vortex Diamondback line of scopes. As I compared it to another high end brand that was $200 more, I was astonished at the clarity of the Diamondback. This Diamondback is crystal clear. Since I have had this scope mounted on my rifle, I have taken two elk and one mule deer and never had a problem with the scope. It finds the target and gives me a clear view of the sweet spot every time. I love the sleek look of the scope and the quality of the optics. I would highly recommend this scope.
