So this is for you guys with the Vortex Crossfires. Do they track reliably? I'm thinking of purchasing one for a rifle until the SS scopes come out with a higher powered variable power one. Does this thing pass a box test? Also what about holding zero? Are they pretty good about holding zero?

Also at what power do the mil dots work? I'm trying to decide if I want to get this thing to use to hold me over or not. I'd put it on something else if I got a new SS scope whenever they came out. So I want it to last. I've read some good reviews, but also a few bad ones.
Right now I have a cheap Simmons 3x9 on the rifle. It's actually fairly clear for the price and does hold zero well. I just like the mil dots on this one, and the higher power. I'm trying to decide if I should order this thing or just keep using my Simmons that works.

If the Simmons is working for you, keep using it. I bought 2 of the Crossfires and don't regret it at all, but if you have something that does work for you and want the SS, use what you have and keep saving. 


One of the Crossfires is mounted on a .22 mag. The other will go on a .204 ruger at some point. It's a good scope for paper punching, but the field of view is too small to hunt with it.

Yeah the Simmons works for me and I do hunt with it. I just have been doing a lot of paper punching with it lately too, so I want something with more magnification and better turrets. I may just keep holding out on the SS though.

Good plan. 


I doubt you'd be able to hunt with the Crossfire. It'd be great for paper punching on a sunny day, but trying to hunt with one would frustrate me. Just my .02

My Crossfire arrive this last week and is mounted on the rifle.  It feels solid, looks great, has great clarity throughout the powers and the turrets feel solid.

I'll be sighting it in and testing the scope this next Saturday, June 19th.  I'll post the results here.
