I got a new scope for my .223 AR. It is a VORTEX 3-12x56 Crossfire II Hog Hunter. It has adjustable objective, illuminated redical, 30 mm tube, and 56 mm objective all for $299. It is pretty clear glass with lots of options for a reasonable price in my opinion. I will let you know how it works on an actual hog hunt.

I just gave my son a 3-7x32 and the glass is really clear. I am wondering how these Crossfires are but with the same Vortex warranty, its worth a shoot to see if it holds up...

I own a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40

and just bought a Crossfire 6-18x44

Comparing the two the glass is clearer on the Diamondback but also the eye relief is more forgiving in the Diamondback.

Crossfire is a good scope but these were the two major performance differences I have seen so far.

I do agree now that I used the Crossfire but for my son in the woods it will do. I also bought another Diamondback HP in 4-16x42. I had tried one out and a freind bought it right off my Rifle after zeroing it in. I've gone back and forth but the scope has better eye relief then my Viper 6.5-20x44. Smaller and lighter so that will be my hunting scope now. The Viper will stay on my 24" AR-Stoner, and it is still a driller with over 1,400 rounds.

My friend is looking for a Hog Hunter Scope and I mentioned this Vortex.

Any report???

This is a really nice scope for the price. With the size of the scope comes the weight. This would be the only issue with it. It really does great on the range.

I take it that its holding up, so thats good. I heard early reports of the cross hairs going bad on the Crossfire Scopes so it might have been a learning curve for Vortex. I have 2 on rifles, my sons and mine with no mechanical issues, so for the price and use, it seems to be good.

I'll pass on your info to my buddy who is looking for a Hog Hunter Scope.

Thanks
