Thanks all. Sorry for the butchered original first post, I’m on my phone and autocorrect didn’t do me any favors.

Looks like I better breakdown and try a Leupold. Maybe somewhere will have a Black Friday deal. Fingers crossed.

Love my Vortexs. The no BS warranty is for real.

Don't discount the Burris scopes. While I have mostly Leopold's Burris makes a good optic.

While Vortex has a fantastic warranty I wonder just how good they really are when they have a refurbished outlet store selling the optics that have been returned and repaired.

Leupold also has a no question lifetime warranty on their optics, and while I have never used it on a rifle scope I did send some binoculars back to them to get the pivot tightened up. They didn't send me back my old binoculars but a new pair.

I’m a big Burris fan as well. Solid quality scopes, lifetime warranty, etc...etc...I have the Fullfield E1 and a Fullfield IV. I love them both. Bright and solid as anything out there that’s far more expensive.

Leupold VX3, 3-9X40. Lighter and adequate for 500 yd shots. For all practical purposes, check out the SigSaur line. Got one for my daughter's .270, nice optics.

Leupold has good options at several price levels. Pick the one you can afford and give it a whirl. You wont be disappointed.---SS

SWFA is a great scope for decent money. I've got one of their variable tactical scopes and it will out dial many big name brands for consistency.

I ended up buying a Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14x 40mm with the CDS and just got it mounted this morning. I went to the range to get it sighted in and at 25 yards I’m 6” low and am already out of elevation. Smith and Edwards mounted it and put on Weaver 61 bases and low Leupold backcountry cross-slot rings.

I’ve never had this happen so I’m at the mercy of mixed google and forum reviews. At this point do I just get a 20 MOA rail or should I try something different to troubleshoot?
