    I would recommend at the very least the diamondback level for vortex… I have a crossfire that hasn’t been mounted in two years. Buy once cry once when it comes to glass.

    Do you really want 12x for hogs? I use a 4X fixed power Nikon on a Ruger 308 scout for hogs. Versatile, quick target acquisition and very clear glass

    main reason I resold mine is the parallax adj @ the objective. Also the cross hairs a so thin that they almost disappear if your aiming into shadows. the illumination on this is the only thing that makes it usable.

    if you have a little extra cash this is what I replace the vortex with [https://www.opticsplanet.com/swampfox-kentucky-long-2-12×44-riflescope.html](https://www.opticsplanet.com/swampfox-kentucky-long-2-12×44-riflescope.html)

    another I would recommend. I don’t have this scope but I have a 1.5×6 x44mm in the same series. if you don’t care about the focus this brand has served me well.

    I can’t believe a Crossfire-level scope is 300, I guess because its a 56

    I feel like you can get a 40-size scope with better glass for the same price, like a Vortex Viper 3-9×40

    The large objective lens size (56mm) would only be of value if you plan to use very high magnification in low light. I only bring it up because the crossfire 2 with the 40 or 44 objective lens is typically a good bit cheaper than that. At 6x magnification there would be absolutely no difference in what you see between a 44 and a 56.

    I used this on my deer rifle for a while. Excellent scope for low light hunts. But far to heavy for me. So i swaped it for a much lighter one.

    If you hunt alot during low light hours and dont care about the weight i think this is a good choice. If you hunt during better light and/or care about weight you should perhaps look for something smaller.

    I shoot at about 50-150yards and use a 2-7×32 vortex crossfire 2 with a one inch tube. I lose an hour of huntable light compared to the hog hunter but other than that i sacrifice nothing in my opinion.

    I have a similar Virtex an I would recommend *not* getting an adjustable objective. It’s just one more thing to worry about at the moment of truth and I haven’t found any benefit to it.

    I believe thats what I have. I don’t recognize a difference between other scopes tbh

    I have one on my Tika. It’s a nice scope at a nice price.

    I have a crossfire on my .270. Used it for the first time last year for antelope, deer and elk. Works great.
