Opinions on Vortex Diamondback 4-12x44

Does anyone have any experience with a Vortex Diamondback rifle scope? I just recently purchased a Winchester Model 70 Sporter Varmint in .22-250 and I'm looking for some decent glass that won't break the bank. I'm only going to be shooting out to 300 yards. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Barrett,

I have a Vortex 1.75-5 x 32 on my 77/357, and its a fantastic little scope, especially for the price. Its very well made, and the glass is quite bright and clear. Objects do get a little out of focus once you get to the edge of the scope, but contrast is quite good. Of course, this is my first scope, so my experience obviously isn't exhaustive. I am however really big into amateur astronomy, and I don't think the glass gives up much in daylight to my (much more expensive) telescopes.

I don't generally shoot beyond 100-ish yards, but the scope does seem clear enough further away. I know they have a BDC reticle, but again, given my usage that wasn't really necessary for me.

my personal experience is that a diamonback is a better scope than a burris ff2, a sightron s1, and a mueller apv. I think it's better than my nitrex tr1 (which is either a rebadged weaver classiv or grand slam, depending on who you ask) but they are such different powers it's hard to say. Vortex also has terrific customer service.

also, this comparison is from a few years ago, and you may have seen it already, but it is still fairly relevant: http://opticsthoughts.com/?page_id=77

Thanks for the help guys! And greyling I actually saw a link to that comparison on another forum but the link wasn't good. I'm glad you linked that! Thanks
