Not a bad little scope ... I think the reticle design on the SS 1-6 is better though.  Im a FFP guy for everything but extreme long range (1500+ yards) and varmint shooting though.  Being SFP I think the Reticle needs some heavier stadia to speed things up.
Looks like they took the VX-R Patrol model, bumped the magnification, gave it a new name, and marketed it to the 3 Gun crowd.

I am on the fence between FFP and SFP for lower power scopes
Pros and cons to both of course
 
The VX-6 has better glass than the Patrol / VXR which is pretty darned good glass and better than the Accupoint 1-4 I have.
 
Also being a true 1x vs the Patrol 1.25
 
It's a very nice little scope that I would be happy to run for 3 gun

I call shenanigans on that FOV.  There is no way it's 223ft @ 100y (1x) or 39.2 ft @ 100y (6x).

Wow.  I want one.  Except I would probably have to sell the rifle that I want it to go on in order to afford it!     Shocked

.

I am just saying from what I've seen on paper. I have not seen either scope in person.The new leupold 1x6 looks on paper to be better than the ss 1x6, here is why ,this is just me. The leupold has a 100 hour battery life it shuts off after 5 or 10 mins of not being use?, it weight is less, I think from what I have readed?It will light up when the scope is moved, auto so you never worry about it, that is what I think I have seen once again I could be wrong I looked at it real quickly so if I am wrong on a few of these please correct me,Kev
