Has anyone used or own the Trijicon Accupoint 5-20x50. I have either heard people loving it or hating it. Any help appreciated. http://swfa.com/Trijicon-5-20x50-Accu-Point-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P12887.aspx

I have one of the 5-20x50 green mildot and I like it.  The correct choice however depends on what you intend to do with it.  I have several Trijicon scopes actually and I particularly like the triangle on the post versions the best and yes even in the 5-20x50.  The control knobs on this scope are rubber coated so they have a very positive feel.  The adjustments are very reliable.  The only real down side to this scope is that it only has 50 moa of internal adjustment which is not really a lot for a long range scope.  It is best suited to use under 600 yds past that you may not have enough adjustment.  If you need more you should look at the Super Sniper 5-20x50 which is a better choice for long range and about the same price range if you get in on the Snipers Hide buy discount.

I was looking at that Trijicon and the Vortex Viper PST http://swfa.com/Vortex-6-24x50-Viper-PST-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P44563.aspx . I shoot out to 600 yards, but I would like to grow into a scope that would let me reach out further. I plan on getting the EGW 20MOA Base and TPS rings with whatever scope I plan on getting. I'd like to stick to 800ish or less for the scope.

I forgot to put that it will be mostly for the range use. I don't hunt, maybe compete down the road.

I have this scope with the mildot/amber dot reticle.  I'm very happy with it so far for my purposes.  If you don't hunt or shoot at night, I'm not sure what advantage it would offer you.  I don't shoot long range, so I don't know exactly to what distance it will work for you, but I don't see the point in limiting your range of adjustment if you have no practical need for the tritium illum.  You said you wanted a scope you could grow into and reach out further, which this one may not allow you to do if you become interested in a chamberings that will extend your practical shooting range.
 
Another issue you may want to consider--the reticle is mildot and the adjustment are MOA.  Some people dislike this combination and prefer moa/moa or mil/mil, which may simplify your life. 
 
The Accupoint may offer a strength you don't need (the tritium illum), and present a weakness that may hamper you (limited adjustment range).  If there's not another reason the illum appeals to you, you may want to consider a diffent scope.

While I am very fond of Trijicon products, I think you would better off long term with a scope that has matching turrets to the reticle and FFP
