Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27×56 – the Remington 700

Home/Firearms, Long Range, Remington 700 Field Steel Rifle/Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27×56 – the Remington 700

A very solid piece of glass.

With my other ‘hobby’ of photography, I knew I was going to want some really good optics on top of the rifle. It was however, still a case of at least trying to balance the optics with the rifle. In the end, I decided to go between the Sightron and the S&B. I was glad I did!

The Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27×56

Vortex Razor Gen II 4.5-27x56 with EBR-2c ReticleIt’s a unit, that is for sure, heavy, solid, reliable, repeatable, awesome!

I ended up going for the EBR-2C Reticle. I was keen on trying out a ‘christmas tree’ style reticle – but didn’t want to go down the path of a Horus, and its imperial basis. The 2C is MilRad – so each major mark represents 1 mil, or 10cm at 100m. Makes sense to my mind.

Overall I am happy with this scope. It may not live on this rifle permanently – as I have come to the conclusion it still is probably a bit ‘too much’ scope for this rifle – but in the meantime – it’s working out very well!



Upgrade that rifle of yours!

Ironically, I am a person running a site about the great outdoors and struggling to get outdoors.One day, or more likely, middle of the night, I decided that working in nightclubs and spending my days in dark studios wasn't that healthy. It was time to get back outdoors! Somewhere along the way I picked up hunting and competitive shooting.Editor and contributor. Gear addicted. Really like my coffee.
