View Full Version : Community Input; which optics package?

Please keep in mind this thread is not a discussion on what you feel would be a better choice outside of the two options we are looking at. With the theme of the project we were thinking; standard optics setup? Or go with some futuristic type stuff?

So the two choices are:

1. 30MM Vortex 4-16x44 Viper HS Long Range, Votex 3" offset 30MM one piece scope mount, Vortex Viper 44MM sunshade, and Vortex bubble level attachment.

2. Burris Eliminator 4-12x42; mount is built in, no additional items needed.

The Eliminator comes out a little bit more, but for the most part, the prices are close enough in similarity we don't mind going either way. I've heard some good things about the Eliminator, and it sort of matches the theme of the rifle, but I also do not want to spend that kind of money on an optic that operates under some more advance tech, but the glass is junk.

If you are going to be making precise shots (sniper, benchrest, F-Class, etc) the Vortex is the better choice.

If you are looking to lob rounds on man or beast size targets without making too much of a fuss about pinpoint accuracy the Burris is the clear choice.

So how is the rifle intended to be used?

Either or. ;)

Just trying to decide which of the two packages would perk ones interest more.

Vortex. Quality wise much much better. Finer cross hairs = better accuracy at long ranges, Tracking will be more precise and accurate and repeatable.
