Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would put this scope on every rifle I own. Great scope at a great price. I have 2 of these scopes. One is mounted on a Ruger 30-06 and the other is on a Remington.270 wsm. These scopes hold zero very well and the adjustments are precise. I have zeroed the scope on the .270 weight for 3 different shooters with ease and no loss of performance from the scope. Both scopes have been bumped or banged around multiple times and have completely held zero. Clarity in low light is terrific. I can't find anything to complain about on these scopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Fan I bought my Diamondback for my AR-15. It has been the best decision I have made. The scope is clear, holds its zero and I have never had a problem with it. Great product great price Great Company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A scope worth a lot more than the cost. I bought this scope for my .243. For a scope that cost around $200 it is far superior to many scopes that cost 2-3 times more. I love the Dead Hold BDC Reticle as it makes shooting at different ranges Quick. Love the products and the Company. Keep up the good work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice optic I have the diamondback 3x9x40 on my .243 and works great. It's a great value at its price point. Will continue to buy vortex products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic scope Clear picture, ease of use. Dead hold reticle has been accurate for me out to 300 yards, which is the longest range I have access to. I have spent a lot more and gotten a lot less our a riflescope in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome medium range hunting scope Great hunting scope. I own multiple. Nothing bad to say about them for western hunting. I have them on pellets guns all the way up to a 300 wsm with no complaints. Switched to these over another reputable brand mainly due to the great customer service and warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Awesome Scope At An Awesome Price! The Diamondback series of optics is what got me hooked on Vortex. It started with the binos and led to scopes. My 3-9x40 with v-plex reticle is currently on my muzzleloader. This scope has withstood the recoil as well as being bumped and knocked around a little in the deer woods. The clarity of glass is excellent in this price point and even better than some above. The Diamondback is a basic no frills scope that just does what it needs to do. It's clear, holds zero, has positive/repeatable adjustments, and it can take some abuse. If you want a riflescope that you can rely on for your hunt without breaking the bank then the Diamondback is your answer.

Would this scope work well on a .270 shooting any where from 100 to 500 yards and still have a clear image of a coyote or deer. Does if have mil dots

Asked by: Dead_on_impact
Hello, Dead_on_impact. The Vortex Diamondback 3 - 9 x 40 Riflescope has a field of view of 44.6-14.8 feet/100 yards. The Dead-Hold BDC reticle has a customized dot design that helps eliminate guesswork on hold-over and windage corrections. Good for any hunting or shooting at varying ranges where estimating hold-over would be a concern. Argon purging puts waterproof and fogproof performance on the agenda, and advanced fully multi-coated optics raise an eyebrow when crystal clear, tack-sharp images appear in the crosshairs.
