Default vortex razor hd lh?

vortex razor hd lh 2-1040 G4 BDC. lh stands for light hunting. and this would be my 1st hunting scope. original price ~$700 to $800 on most online sellers. just ordered one <$550 after tax. but im hard to find much more reviews abt this scope online as most reviews are abt vortex razor instead.

just wanna check out with my calgun buddies to see if any one have any good/bad experiences w/ it. and how does it compare to a luppy vxr or vx3i?

For what they are designed to do, they are great.

Lightweight, rugged, and crystal clear. No frills, all function.

I've used the 3-15x42 quite a bit and a coworker went with the 2-10x40 on his lightweight AR. Both of us only have positive things to say about the scopes.

If I ever put together a lever gun, the Razor HD LH 1.5-8x32 would definitely be in the top 3.

Definitely lighter than any VXR ive handled and i think a better image than most 40mm VX3i that ive used.

Hot price for a wonderful piece of glass, I highly doubt you will be disappointed.

Thanks for the info! The only thing bothers me a bit is 2-10 doesn't have side focus while 3-15 has. But 3-15 doesn't have any discount on cabelas, thus makes 2-10 a no brainer. I'm going to put this on bergara b14 HMR 308 for both hunting and plinking. Does 3-15 worth the extra money or I can live with 2-10 for now?

I have the razor 1.5-8 on my lever gun and you can barely tell it is on the gun. Super nice glass and when I buy a lightweight rifle it will be another razor LH

Little bit of personal preference and application dependent there...what do you intend to hunt?

The 2-10x should be enough magnification to do most tasks, it is a really versatile magnification range.

But the side focus becomes more valuable the farther you intend to shoot so if you plan to shoot greater than 300yds I would consider the 3-15x

No doubt you would be good to go with the 2-10x though, especially at a hot price.

I have all three of the HD LH scopes and the 1.5-8x32 sits on my 458SOCOM. It is an exceptionally nice scope with excellent optics. It also helps that it has held up to the 458 with no issues.
