Anyone have experience with Vortex scopes?  I was looking in the sub-7X catagory for my 30-30, and they seem to have the widest FOV for any scope of its same magnafication.
Thanks!

I don't know anything about that particular brand, but optically-speaking if it has the widest field of any 7x scope, it also has the shortest eye-relief.  (Optical Triangle principle; Field-of-view vs. Magnification vs. Eye-relief.) When one of these attributes increases, one or both of the remaining attributes must diminish accordingly, at least within an optical system of a given size.  Anybody care to add to this?
