Testing of Vortex Crossfire II Review 1-4

Right off the bat you will see a eye relief allowing a range to keep your face. My first shot was one inch high and dead center. Two clicks on my rounds and the altitude were touching in the center of the target. I’ve taken it varmint hunting because out to 120 yards and it’s very accurate.

Out to a hundred yards that the groupings remain an inch or closer. There are options if you’re wishing to put glass but maintain it weight but should you want illumination this will probably be around where you’ll be right.
