POTD: The Vortex Optics Razor HD 5-20×50

    This is the Vortex Razor HD 5-20×50 FFP, in an excellent photograph through the reticle. It makes me long for the summer (or the spring for starters), and to go out and ring some steel. The photo is taken from the Vortex Facebook page. While I haven’t looked through the 5-20 model myself, I really like the Vortex HD series and think this riflescope should enhance any AR-system or bolt-action rifle.

    Below you can read the details about this riflescope.

    Poised to fulfill the needs of even the most extreme long-range shooters, the Razor HD has the features, build quality and optical performance to extend your maximum capability. Animpressive optical system offers the crisp image quality necessary to pick apart the landscape for targets at extended range, while the 35mm, one-piece tube allows for 125 MOA (36 MRAD) of adjustment to dial them in precisely.
    No scope in the Vortex line has this much travel, and thanks to the integrated, mechanical RZR zero stop, you can dial all day knowing you’ll always have an accurate, repeatable and solid return to zero between stages or at the end of any range session. A glass-etched, first focal plane reticle makes for quick and easy holdovers, range estimations or calls for correction for a fellow shooter on any magnification.

    The MSRP is $1,999.99 which seems competitive.

    We had the Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27×56 as a benchmark during our review of the Leica PRS 5-30x56i Riflescope.
