Anyone know anything about Vortex Rifle Scopes ??

I just picked up a new-in-box 4-12 X 40 with the Dead hold BDC from a buddy at the range.

I'm thinking of putting it on my Ultra-Light .30-06 hunting rifle for Colorado.

Cant help ya on the scopes but FWIW, their binos can rival some of the best...I'm guessing they have diffferent quality model scopes like the binos....
...just did a quick search, they have a razor and viper line for scopes just like the binos, those are most likely great glass!
I have a Viper 2-7 on my Beowulf.  It has held up well.  Good bang for the buck.  I would stay away from the Crossfire line as Vortex says they are intended for rimfire applications.  They have a good warranty and have developed a pretty strong rep for delivering a good value and great customer service.
The PST line packs some nice features for the price. Optically it could be better. Made in the Philippines I believe. All in all not a bad product. I was playing with one the other day. I don't like their zero stop. You need to use brass shims in the turret assembly. Seems clumsy to me.
I put a Vortex Sparc on one of my ARs. Obviously not the same type of optic that you'd have on a hunting gun, but I have
to say that for the money, it has held up well. I was pleasantly surprised overall with the quality.
I think we'll be seeing a lot more of the Vortex products as they keep clawing their way into a crowded marketplace
with decent products at a good price point.
I have a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP on a Savage 110BA in .300 Winmag.
Boxed the adjustments, all accurate. No loss of zero through full magnification range, clarity is fine for a scope of this price, especially for my bifocal eyes.
I've recommended them several times as good value/quality - at least this particular model.
