Can anyone weigh in on these scopes yet? We've got some damn fine sub $800 1-4x scopes in the SS and VRX from Leupold.

I know the Vortex PST line had some hiccups and this is the newest line out there from them. Has anyone handled one of these?

Love the reticle on that version.

What you like about that one better than say the SS Donut of Death?

I don't pull any punches, but the reticle on the 1-4x SS doesn't excite me. Just not my cup of tea. Cost is another factor, plus to many people have talked about the focus issue at 4x. I have no doubts in my mind it's one of the best 1-4x on the market, but i don't know if it's something i want to drop 8 bones on right now. That may change. I wish i could look through a couple different pieces to be honest, but i'm not exactly close enough to central Texas to do so lol. Not to mention the Leupold VRX patrol line is getting rave reviews and comes in almost $200 cheaper, which helps the wallet.

I really want the SS 5-20, but that's gonna take some more time to save up the difference between my Bushnell 6500 and the 5-20 Big Grin, but it's gonna happen!
