Im a big advocate of scope levels. I look forward to getting a Vortex Flare on one of my rifles.
The Vortex Riflescopes Flare Illuminated Bubble Level is everything you ever wanted in a scope level. Low-signature, rear-facing illumination with three intensity levels ensures optimal visibility in all light conditions. The recessed push-button control is easily accessed from a shooting position. The integrated Picatinny rail mount attaches easily and keeps the level low and trim. It can be mounted and removed with the riflescope on or off your rifle. SKU: FBL-1
Battery – Flare Illuminated Bubble Level utilizes an LR621 battery. The Vortex Riflescopes Flare Illuminated Bubble Level is made in the USA.
What is the Purpose of a Scope Level
Your rifle when properly set up is using the vertical and horizontal plane as a frame of reference. When you shoot the force of gravity will be at work pulling your bullet towards the earth. Should you want to shoot out further gravity has more time to impact the bullet and you may need to make a correction (hold over or dial your turret) in order to impact your target. Should you cant your rifle it will no longer be in the correct frame of reference so your corrections may not be as accurate as you desire. Having a level gives you the opportunity to make sure you are correctly positioning your rifle and makes sure your corrections will be as intended.

It appears that Vortex Optics now has Eotech in their sights with the announcement of the AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight. The timing could not be better given Eotech’s latest troubles with the admission of cold weather distortion, reticle fade, thermal drift and parallax issues.
Introducing the Vortex Optics RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight.
The RAZOR AMG UH-1 Holographic Sight affectionately known in-house as “Huey.” The UH-1 is a completely new force in weapon mounted holographic technology, and you’re one of the first shooters to see it! Inside the durable aluminum chassis the UH-1 features fewer moving parts compared to traditional holographic sights. This equates to maximum durability. The holographic sight is powered with the included CR123A battery. the weapon sight also has the option of running LFP CR123A batteries. LFP CR123A batteries can be recharged using the on-board, waterproof micro-USB port.
We believe the shooter is the only one who should see the new Vortex EBR-CQB reticle so we engineered the entire system to virtually eliminate all traces of forward signature, unlike any other red dot or holographic sight on the market.

The Ultimate Optics Guide to Rifle Shooting by Vortex Optics
As I mentioned in previous posts I am not typically a “Brand” guy but as a rare exception I’m becoming a fan of the Vortex Optics brand. This morning over coffee I was scanning the Vortex Optic site for 2016 products when I happened across the All About Optics Brochure. I found it to be nicely done and informative in a down to earth manner. Being a curious guy I decided to research who wrote it. It appears the author is CPL. Reginald J.G. Wales a technical field advisor for Vortex Optics. Upon further research it turns out CPL. Reginald J.G. Wales is also the author of a book from Vortex optics called “The Ultimate Optics Guide to Rifle Shooting” from Vortex Optics”. The Ultimate Optics Guide to Rifle Shooting was released in December 2015 and has no reviews at the usual places. The book can be previewed on Google Books and purchased from Google and Amazon in Hardback, Paper and Kindle versions. I was hoping the kindle version would be less expensive but it’s the same as the paperback. I ordered the paperback. Look for feedback and a review in the near future.
