    Diamondback has the edge optically, on just though. .....
    and I like the bdc reticle, my crossfire scope isn't used much anymore, just on my 7mmRemMag which is a safe queen at the mom,ent.

    i reckon the diamondback is awesome so the crossfire must be very good as well. Have you used the vortex LRBC?

    I have a crossfire II 6-18x44 on my .223 and its awesome AO is very nice for shooting hares at distance. My mate has a Diamondback in 4-12x40 and we compared that to the Crossfire II in the same zoom and it was very close, but the diamondback seemed ever so slightly clearer to our eyes. I now also have a Viper PST 6-24x50 on my 300 win mag and that is awesome!!

    Crossfire 11 on my 308, sparc on my sks, and looking at a diamondback for the 223 outstanding value for money. Have has the sparc repaired under warranty after ripping the switch cover on barbed wire no problem at all and back in 2 weeks just for the cost of postage.

    My crossfire 2 in 3-9x40 is great, very tough and very waterproof, holds zero. Good at picking up light, you can see through the scope but not with your naked eye on when dusk gets dark. My mates leupold was slightly brighter though.
