Vortex has "corrected" the flaws of previous 1-4x PST, that is daytime bright, really bright and small dot, crosshair that is otherwise perfect, but small mark for aiming between zero and first line would enhance aiming to 250 meters (zero at 150-200m, next down about 300m). Also I would leave this upwards line complete away..It´s just blocking view.. Not the best optical quality, but for the price I think it´s excellent. Broad field of view at 1x and eyebox is not bad even at 6x. It´s double the price compared to Strike Eagle, but definitely worth the extra money.. A bit heavy, but that´s usually only a good thing meaning better quality glass.. Of course it´s not in par with kahles 1-6x, but I see no reason to pay almost 2000 euros, when You can do the same things with this vortex.
I think this scope is about a perfect choice for 223-carbine/rifle to maximize hit probability all the way to 600-700 meters, that is to the max.. for competition (ipsc) or tactical shooter..
