I would love to see a reticle picture.  This thing looks like a perfect 3-gun scope.  Looking at who helped design it, there is no wonder.  Good Job Vortex, way to listen.  I'll copy the Press Release they have on arf in their industry forum here too, unless that's uncool.

Vortex releases the Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24

Poised to dominate


Vortex Optics new Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 is set to dominate the tactical market. Every component, feature and performance characteristic of this riflescope is so well thought out and executed, it’s almost scary.

Optically, the Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 delivers the highest level of clarity, resolution, color accuracy, light transmission and edge to edge sharpness obtainable. The ultraforgiving eye box with generous eye relief generates a heads-up-display-like sight picture for fast target acquisition and optimal dual-eye visual monitoring of the surrounding environment. HD (high-density extra-low dispersion) glass fully multicoated on all air-to-glass surfaces with Vortex’s proprietary XR antireflective coatings guarantees top-tier optical performance. Exterior glass surfaces boast Vortex’s scratch/oil/salt-resistant ArmorTek coating. All coatings are applied using the cutting edge PlasmaTech application process, resulting in unparalleled coating durability.

Ultrasleek and built like a tank on a 30 mm aircraft-grade aluminum tube, the Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 features ultralow-profile, capped, windage and elevation turrets for streamlined performance. Zero-resettable turrets offer 50 MOA of adjustment in a single turn ensuring ample travel.

Simple, clean, intuitive and fast, the Vortex-exclusive JM-1 BDC reticle (designed using input from world-renowned competitive shooter, instructor and gunsmith, Jerry Miculek) facilitates rapid, accurate, shooting at distances from 20 to 600 yards. BDC references subtend with popular .223/5.56mm and .308/7.62mm loads. Users can also custom match the exact ballistics of their particular load to the drop hashmarks of the reticle using Vortex's LRBC ballistic program. Horizontal BDC hashmark widths correspond to 18 inches at 300, 400, 500 and 600 yards for range estimation at respective distances.

A true, daylight-bright illuminated center dot gives shooters red dot sight functionality and ultimate close-quarters versatility. Illumination is accessed and activated via the locking illumination dial positioned cleanly on the left side of the turret housing. Features 11 intensity levels with an off-position between each setting. Riflescope is o-ring sealed and purged with inert argon gas for absolute waterproof/fogproof performance.

Incredibly versatile and perfect for the AR platform, the new Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6x24 is the ideal optical solution for short to medium-range tactical applications requiring the pinnacle of optical performance.

American owned, Middleton, Wisconsin based Vortex Optics designs, engineers, produces and distributes a complete line of premium binoculars, riflescopes, spotting scopes, tripods and related accessories.

I saw a prototype of this scope earlier this year and a couple of things struck me: 
- the FOV at 1x is crazy wide
- the reticle illumination is very bright

I think it will make for a very fast scope to use.

How does the glass compare to Leupold?  I'm looking at this scope versus the VX6 1-6 Multigun.

My group had that scope to kick around and play with, my opinion, the Vortex glass is better that Leupold, but in that range you are not going to notice it much. Overall the Vortex is much tougher.
There also is the price difference.

Faster than irons, slightly slower than a red dot (but not by much).  

If you've got a consistent cheek weld and are willing to practice a bit, a good 1x scope is competitive with red dots.

In all honesty, our published spec is even fairly conservative. Measuring on the computerized test bench(which is what we list our specs off of) is usually a little on the conservative side. When I physically measured the FOV in the field, with the scope on a sturdy tripod, I got closer to 125'. This scope exceeded my expectations and is truly very impressive as Ilya mentioned.

I have a lot of time behind this scope now(about 2yrs), so if anyone has any questions let me know and I will give you as much of a non-biased answer as I can.

Best Regards
Scott

When will you be coming out with additional reticles?  I prefer MOA marks with MOA turrets.
