Vortex Crossfire Scopes

I have mounted two Vortex Crossfire scopes on a 300 Blackout rifle. The mount is a Brownell's one piece Ar mount. Both scopes the reticle either rotated in circles or become misaligned after 50 rds. One scope was a 3X9 and now a 4X12 has failed. Is Vortex Crossfire junk or maybe the mount. Vortex won't send me free shipping labels anymore unless it's a brand new sale.

I have a Crossfire...not any problems with it.
That said, I have heard of issues with them.

I'm a HUGE vortex fan, and own four of their scopes. I do think they need to be careful as they try to cater to the "entry level" market- you can only sacrifice quality to a point before you start to tarnish an otherwise very good rep.
Not to mention, it doesn't serve their financial interest, either. Having scopes come back and needing to service them has gotta eat up a good part or all of the profit.

Of course they'll fix or replace them (their top-notch CS is one reason I stay with them)- but please keep us posted on how they deal with these.
