    I currently have a Vortex Viper on my 25-06... its a good enough scope for me and what coyotes and targets I shoot at but I see SWFA has a deal on a 3.5-10x42 or 44 scope.... just wondering which scope is the better scope?

    sorry its a 2.5-10x44.... looks pretty nice... just wondering if its able to handle the abuse of my 25-06 recoil (granted not a punisher but more recoil than a 22 cal)

    you arent going to notice any real difference between the two and the ammo and range time needed to sight in a new scope would negate the change. I just got a Leupold Vari-X IIC and put it up against my Diamondback and couldnt justify swapping scopes.

    Sorry i just checked and its a vortex crossfire not viper..... so it may be a mute point. Was just hoping to take advantage of the good deal on the SI

    A friend of mine got one of the S1 in that magnification range. It looks to be a solid scope and the glass looks good to me. I would say that it is in the Nikon Prostaff to Burris Fullfield II range. It holds zero well and has surprisingly repeatable and accurate turrets. Point of impact doesn't change with magnification.
