    Need a scope

    Got a browning xbolt hells canyon LR 7mm for a gift. Now need to get a scope for it. Between Vortex HST 6x25 or leupold vx3i 6.5 x 20. Price wise about the same. Never had neither brand so any opinions will be helpful.

    After my experiences with both Vortex and Leupold, Leupold is a FAR better product hands down.

    If pricing is the same, Leupold all the way. I have ones than are 15 years old, still fog free, great clarity, very helpful customer service if you call or email.

    Maybe Night Force is the only brand I would take above Leupold, but pricing becomes a factor.

    Agree 100%. Dollars being equal, the leupold is the clear winner. Both have great warranties. Both will perform well. But the leupold is likely a bit better glass. My favourite scope that I own is a VX-3i.
