  I am looking for a new scope for a Browning .270 wsm. Primary use will be hunting deer, elk etc. All my other scopes are Adjustable Objective. I have been watching the "inexpensive scope comparison" and I am interested in the Vortex scope's.  I am looking at the Diamondback in a 4-12x40.  Without the AO it can be had for around $100.00 less than with the AO. Since I have no variable's without the AO I cannot compare on my own. Is the AO worth the extra money or not for this scope?

There are a number of threads going on this topic.
A lot depends on your application, target v's hunting. The distances you intend to shoot also will effect your decision.
On a 4-12 scope for hunting within 350 yds (and the occasional longer shot) I would not bother with an AO.
