The EBR-2D is my new favorite reticle. It is definitely an upgrade from the EBR-2C which has poorly placed elevation numbers. The glass is on par with my Viper HST. Which is good. The turrets are nice, but less audible and less tactile than the gen 1 turrets which were only 5 mils per rotation. Surprisingly, mine has 26 mils of elevation (6 more than advertised)! Power ring is stiff and the grip on it is much worse than my HST. If you're going to move the adjustment in a hurry you'll want to add a throw lever. Overall, it was a nice scope at a good price.

As someone who's used many high-end scopes (Nightforce, Steiner, Leupold, Bushnell ED) I can say without a doubt this is the best scope for $1k or less. I compared the glass to my Bushnell XRSII ED and really the only difference is a little less color pop. Resolution is incredible. The field of view is the best I've even seen in it's class. My Bushnell XRSII has nothing on this scope's FOV. Eurooptic is excellent as always.

I prefer the EBR-2D reticle on this model because it does not have an open dot center, like the others. The eye-box is very good. The glass quality is also very good. I still see a fair bit of CA at maximum magnification, but the resolution is still quite good. The turrets have a tactile click, and they track well. The zero stop is great, and one of my favorite features of this scope. I do wish that the turrets locked down a little better than the set screw design allows. I would complain that the illumination isn't daylight bright, but I never use it anyway, so it's a non-issue for me.

Scope is great, everything I have come to expect from Vortex. Turrets are very crisp and easy to adjust, glass is clear and tree reticle makes it easy to holdover for stages with multiple distances. Eurooptics got it here quickly will use them again.

Received mine a few weeks back. Installed it on my 6.5 Creedmoor. 1 inch low and 2 inches to the left. Easy and quick adjustment allowed for fast setup. Nice optics. Great price!!!

My review is of the service I got ordering the scope. I ordered on a Wednesday. Thursday was a holiday. Friday AM got an email telling me bank declined purchase (fraud detection). Straightened out the bank. Called Euro Optic guys and resubmitted. I got the scope today (Monday). Perfect condition. The scope itself is a superb piece of equipment. Glass is crystal clear. All controls works as advertised. The only item of note is installing the reticle battery: There’s one tang that’s obviously different from the others. Seat the battery edge first 180* from that tang and depress. Battery likes to pop back out. Since one will only change a battery once every few years it’s a tiny issue. I’ll be mounting the scope in a Ruger American All Weather 300WM this weekend and be able to review it rightly. This rant was more to identify great service, great prices and a great company. Thanks to the guys st Euro Optic!!

Good scope at good price . I prefer sfp scopes as reticle gets to small under 10x , but don't plan shooting at short distances with the rifle I mounted it on. So works perfectly for this particular setup. Thanks euro optic for the excellent price!

Thanks Eurooptics for the incredible deal on the Vortex Viper PST 5-25 ffp scope. Shipping was extremely quick for the $20 upgrade. The optics is a Vortex with their lifetime warranty so no worries there. I’m looking forward to doing more business with you in the future.

First of all, I'm writing this review for anyone who may question Eurooptic's low price on these models. I was skeptical at first but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. The delivery was on time and much sooner than I expected. The scope was well-packaged and even the actual box itself was in pristine condition - no scratches, dents or whatsoever. The scope itself is really nice and personally, I would say the clarity is comparable to Razor Gen HD but with less than half the price. I mounted the scope on my Gen 3 RPR 6.5 CM and took it out to the range to ZERO it. I was immediately blown away with the clarity of its glass. The zero stop was on point and pretty easy to adjust. Got the scope zeroed at 100 yards with 3 rounds, then went ahead and shot at 200 yards with elevation and windage adjustment made based on my bullet data. Shots were on point and grouping was sub-MOA. Then I brought my elevation back to zero for 100 yards, still held the shots it accurately. The EBR-2D was not an issue at all and I actually l like it. The sub-tensions are on point as well. The illumination on the reticle can also be seen even at bright daylight and white background (max brightness) Be aware though that the reticle illumination is a little finicky. I had issues with it not turning on but I figured out that you do not need to push the battery all the way. It has been working since then and I'm not even worried because Vortex has the best warranty out there. Also, you can easily scratch the battery cap so make sure that you actually use a coin to loosen it. Overall, I personally think this is a GREAT buy given that you won't be able to find these models cheaper than what EO is selling them for. I absolutely love this scope and everything about it! Can't wait to take it out beyond 300 yards. Bottom line: You'll love this scope and won't regret it! Thanks Eurooptic!

Best scope you can find under a $1000, Glass is clear and visible all the way to sundown. Wish Vortex made some better lens caps. I can't imagine they cost that much. Having a hard time finding the right size. Installed it on my Smith & Wesson MP10 65 Creedmoor. I can easily see targets beyond 500 yards.

*Disclaimer* Have not been able to zero yet, only mount and boresight due to winter. Optic: Love the optic, there is a reason why the pst gen 2 5-25x is the standard or minimum bar for long range range and/or precision. The glass is great. Very bright and crisp with no noticable CA. The ebr-2d reticle is the step in the right dorection predecessor to the newer ebr-7 reticles by moving the mil/moa markings to the outside of the windage tree markings and deleting the open center crosshair. Damn good illumination for a high power ffp scope (though not daylight bright, but that's not necessary for this type of scope). My only cons so far is the illumination knob is damned stiff (I rarely use it anyway) and it NEEDS a mag throw lever/cat tail, so figure that into the cost as well (I prefer MKMachining's due to the 'teeth' that fit into the magnification rings grooves). Eurooptic: Great and quick customer support, shipping and prices. Awesome company.

Purchased this optic about a month ago, It is my first Vortex scope and have to say that the quality, fit and finish is excellent.It resides on a Ruger precision rifle in 6mm Creedmoor with Vortex extra high rings. It tracks perfectly and the glass is very clear and bright. W&E turrets are very comfortable and have solid stops..The Zero stop was very easy to adjust and performs as it should...I have no complaints with this Vortex optic and will be purchasing Vortex in the future....It was also a easy transaction with euro optic with quick shipping...will order with them again.

It came in one piece and great condition. Loved the durability feel of the scope. The only thing was the shipping never really updated once it left PA. Other than that great experience.

Let me say first that I am (was) a novice at choosing this kind of optic. After many hours/days of research and reading reviews, I chose the Vortex. It is in a class by itself when it comes to optics. Sure you will spend more, but you get what you pay for. I have it mounted on my Creedmore for long distance and could not have made a better choice.

For the great price offered by Euro Optic, I'm very happy with this scope. Product as described. Easy to use instructions for mounting, setting focus and sighting in. Ready to use for long range, now to find a 500yd plus range.

Like my Viper alot. Mounted it on a Tikka T3x 6.5 Creedmoor heavy barrel. Used Vortex Pro PR30-L rings and the scope fit perfect! Not sure I like the D reticle with elevation numbers way to the right. With a 100yd zero and ballistic sheet printed with m.v. off box of 140 ELD Match I was hitting steel at 200, 400, and 600.

Have only mounted up the scope but love it so far. Been looking for quite a while for an optic that fit my needs. Compared all the major brands at this price point and ultimately went with the Vortex due to Europtics killer price! Have it mounted on a precision 22lr build and it looks great! Turrets are crisp and audible, glass is clear all the way through the zoom range. Just need time to get out to the range.

I have not got to completely put it through it’s paces yet as I’ve i only shot it out to 500yrds so far, but so far no complaints. Glass quality is great for the price range, very bright. Have not used it in lowlight conditions yet. Reticle is great, I like how it only illuminates the cross hair and not the whole Christmas tree. Zero stop was a breeze to set and optic returns to zero perfectly so far. Will be doing more tracking tests to confirm. Euro optic had an outstanding price and fast shipping as well. Will be looking to them for future orders now
