Golden Eagle® HD 15-60x52 ECR-1 (MOA) Riflescope

Competitive shooters require a very specific set of features to stay ahead of the competition, and The Golden Eagle hits the mark (pun intended). The 15-60x magnification, fine reticle, and positive and repeatable tracking are perfect for fine tuning that record shot. Plus, its relatively light weight—29.5 oz.—allows shooters to adhere to strict competition weight limits.

Whether you’re interested in Rimfire Bench Rest, Centerfire Bench Rest, NRA High-Power or F-Class competitions, this is the scope for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for solo work Bought scope recently for my 6mm-06 Ackley. I have used a 60x spotting scope for 500-1k range shooting. Now I am able to quickly assess shot placement without the back and forth I have been accustom to with the use of a spotting scope. The scope is lighter than I expected, but still feels solid. Parallax adjustment seems to stop at 600 yards, however a decent 1k focus is still easily achievable. The male threads on the Aperture Stop Ring seemed flawed, even damaged the female threads on the sunshade, objective cover no longer screws smoothly into the sunshade. This is ok because I use a flip-cover. All in all, a great scope for long range. (And amazing at 100yard "showoffmanship") Attachments were disappointing for a scope of this quality, but the scope itself gets 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great F-Class scope Bought this for F-Class and boy was I surprised how great it worked. Glass is exceptionally clear for the high magnification. I usually keep it between 30-40x depending on the mirage and it really helps you dial in on the x ring. I actually had it on 60x at 1000yrds this weekend but the conditions were absolutely perfect. I used it to shoot this 800yrd target 2 weeks ago. I'm a novice at F-class so I was pretty happy.

Does the Golden Eagle have a reticle illumination?

Asked by: staron23
The Golden Eagle HD scopes do not have illuminated reticles.

Is the Golden Eagle warranted for use on a Barrett M99? And if so, What mount do you recommend?

Asked by: Billy
The Golden Eagle would handle the recoil of your Barrett M99, but if you are looking at shooting long range the Golden Eagle may not be the best choice because it does not have a very large range of adjustment. I recommend our Razor HD or Razor HD Gen II for better options to shoot long range. With that setup, our Precision Extended Cantilever Mount would work well for a mount.

Hello for a Savage Ashbury Precision rifle in .308, what scope mount would you suggest?  Lastly, this scope only comes in MOA not MIL? :(

Asked by: Robert
I recommend our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 1.45" height. This scope was designed for F Class and Benchrest competition shooting which is why it is only available in MOA.

What rings do you recommend in order to mount a golden eagle on my new 6.5 ruger precision rifle with a Dakota Silencer Varminter 3.0 with a heat wrap attached? 

Asked by: Kdog604
A set of our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 1.45" height will work great on your setup.

What matching rings for this scope on a Savage 10 Ashbury Precision Rifle?

Does Vortex offer/recommend a 20 MOA ring set that will fit my Savage 110 BA .338 LM for the Golden Eagle HD?

Asked by: Bill
We do not offer 2 piece rings in 20 MOA, we do have our Precision Extended Cantilever Mount that is available in 20 MOA. Your other option would be to replace the stock rail with a 20 MOA rail.

To clarify the question I previously answered, how many MOA are there from the bottom of the scope to the crosshairs (it looks approx. 10 MOA)

Asked by: SOSolutions
That number will vary at different magnifications because the scope is second focal plane, we do not recommend using the bottom of the scope for holding over however and thus do not have that measurement.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics

What is the number of MOA that can be measured from the bottom anchor to the middle of the reticle on the SCR-1 MOA reticle?

Asked by: SOSolutions
The SCR-1 reticle does not have any subtensions, it is just a fine reticle.
