Does anyone have any experience with these scopes? I would like to know how durable they are and how the quality of the glass is. I plan on putting one on a Remington 700P in .308.

They are extremely durable and the glass quality is excellent for their price points. Do a search for reviews on the scope of your choice and I bet you'll find tons.

BTW, Vortex has a no BS, no questions asked lifetime transferrable warranty. They even state, "We want you to use your scopes and not worry about breaking them."

I have on on my LR-308 and its fantastic. Holds up to the round, maintains zero without issue, awesome optics and an awesome pricetag

What magnification are you using? I am probably going to get the 6x24

Is the glass pretty clear on the optic?

I have a 2.5-10 on my ar15 and really enjoy it. A real nice piece of glass for the money.

I was looking at that one as well. It may not be in my budget to buy a $2,000.00 Scope so I may have to settle with a $900.00 Scope.

For the price you cannot beat these! Glass is great and the reticle is awesome.

You're talking about the PST right?

Another great value brand is SWFA. Check them out too.

Don't have to much trigger time behind mine, but I am pleased with it. My friends Leupold seems a bit brighter. I went with the 4x-16x only because when I ordered the 6x-24x was out of stock everywhere. The 6x-24x scopes are actually said to have better glass. Mine is a FFP MRAD scope which is awesome, that, the parallax adjustment and the magnification made it worth it to me. Zero'd in 2 shots, just count the dots. If I were to do it over again I'd have gotten the 6x-24x but for right now I am very pleased with mine.

I own the 4-16 MIl/MIL SFP verson. Overall, it is a great scope considering its price. Glass is good but not anything special, however, the features and repeatablility of the adjustments is what makes these scopes standout. IMO, strong points are; retiticle, knobs/adjustments, and great customer service if needed. I haven't needed to use the illumination so I can't comment on that feature.

the Vortex FFP 6-24 new is presently hard to find, but the 4-16 can be found fairly easily with a little googling.
I had an FFP 6-24 that I ended up selling, but overall, I think it is a fine choice for the $. I got the scope as a purchase with a APA custom 308, and it functioned flawlessly for the limited time I owned the scope. The EBR reticle is actually quite nice on the vortex, and the illumination works well.
I also have an swfa 5-20 and to be honest felt the swfa glass was slightly clearer at the higher power (above 15x). The swfa also appears to be built more robustly than the vortex. But, the swfa costs about 30% more, and unless you are beating the crap out of your scope, I think for the $ you can't go wrong with the ffp 6-24, and they have not lost much in the way of resale either.:o
