    Vortex scopes

    I've currently got a Minox za3 3-9x40 on my .22lr which is a cracking little scope, however I fancy a bit more mag up to x16 max. I'm looking at the cheaper vortex scopes but want to know are they any good?

    I have 2 Vortex at the moment and waiting for another to arrive, l have a Viper 6-24x50 mildot on my .223 and the next one will be going on my 6.5x284, the Diamondback 2-7x32 l have on my .22lr is great, BDC lines on the reticles allow a decent aimpoint for known distances, l like them a lot and wouldn't hesitate to buy another if l need one. Plus, the guarantee cannot be faulted.

    Don't know how large a scope you want, but you need parallax adjustment more that super glass, because the range will be under 200 yards. I use an older Simmons 4-12x40 AO to test my .22s. It has a fine crosshair, and target turrets with 1/8 minute clicks. It was probably the most expensive scope they made at the time. Bushnell makes a nice one, from time to time.

    Some of the 4-12x40 AO hunting scopes, like the Swift Premium or EA Brown 97D, will surprise you with the shots you can make.

    I have a 2-7x32 AO Hawke on a .22 now and love it... shooting out to 150+ yards with great precision.

    I would put a Vortex Diamondack 2-7x35 or a Burris FFII 2-7x35 on a .22 LR in a minute. Perfect size, sharp, and the stadia work perfectly for 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150 yards.
