Can anyone on here shed any light on the various models of Vortex scopes and their relevant pricing?
The reason I ask is that I am after a nes scope for my .243 for foxing and need it to have paralax so I can use it with NV. Also I would like it to have turrets for dialling in longer shots and for some practice. I have been mainly looking at the Viper HS 4-16x50 LR BDC Reticle (Long Range MOA) and Viper 6.5-20x50 PA** with Dead-Hold BDC Reticle (MOA).
Both have what I am after but obviously the 6.5-20 has more mag. What I can't seem to work out from looking on the Riflecraft website is the differences between the scopes in terms of quality or lens coatings etc. Even the Viper HS 4-16x50 has a price difference of £100 between the different reticles with no other apparant differences. Is a different reticle really that expensive?
The scope will be for day use and night time with NV so super coatings for low light transmission aren't so important as twightlight shooting isn't a priority and will probably affect the transmission or ir anyway.
Any help in uderstanding will be greatly appreciated.
