Vortex is good performance for the money
Vortex and Nikon.
Great value and good glass. Leupold too. I swear though it seems like the eye relief on all the Leupold’s I have used is a little more finicky than the others.
Have one Zeiss scope 3x9 Conquest. I like it. For the money though I can’t see where it’s better than the Vortex or Nikon.
One of the trends I don’t understand is guys buying lightweight rifles and then mounting huge, heavy scopes. But to each his own.
