I am really looking at getting one of these for one of my rifles.  My question is the following.
Why no parallax adjustment on this super nice scope?

Also is parallax adjustment that big a deal?  I am just confused.

To me it looks like a Ferrari but with NO Air Conditioner.

I do not get it.

Never an issue hitting targets out to 900 yards with mine.  CDS and adjustments are spot on.  Very impressed so far.  Optics on par with my neighbor's Swaro A.

A simple 100 yards.  20 MOA per turn.  It sits on a 7mag.

Maybe I should pull my SS 3-9 and put the VX6 in its place.  Thanks for the input.  Sorry OP, I didn't mean to side track your thread.

I don't think it's a big deal.  Even Swaro doesn't put side focus on anything 12X and under

I don't think they are really needed on a hunting rifle...
a good scope and consistent cheek weld works.

I have shot 2" groups with a VX6 2-12 at 500 yards on my 280AI
VX6 2-12 is a darned nice hunting scope
