First Look: ZeroTech Vengeance 5-25x56mm Scope

A budget-friendly optic that's designed for long-range shooting.

Vengeance can be yours, and it's quite affordable.

The Australian-based optics company ZeroTech has just added another riflescope to their budget-friendly Vengeance product line.

The 5-25x56 riflescope is designed for precision marksmanship such as competitive shooting events like the PRS (Precision Rifle Series). This scope is built around the First Focal Plane (FFP) glass etched with a RMG reticle. ZeroTech designed this reticle in-house to meet the demands of long-distance precision shooters and PRS competitors alike. The RMG reticle gives these shooters the flexibility of holding for windage or elevation or simply dialing it in with the turrets.

Vengeance 5-25x56 Features:

  • RMG FFP reticle
  • 34mm one piece main tube
  • Enhanced internal elevation travel (28 MRAD)
  • Removable throw lever included
  • Zero Stop
  • Glass etched reticle
  • Weathershield lens coating
  • Available in MRAD only
  • 5-25X magnification power
  • 56mm objective lens

First -focal-plane optics are associated with higher end scopes as they require more effort to make compared to the more common and more affordable SFP (Second-Focal-Plane) optics. The main difference for shooters is that FFP optics have reticles that are always in proportion to the zoom adjustment level at any given range, so when the optic is on lower magnifications, the reticle appears thinner and smaller. When it is at higher or maximum magnification, it will appear fuller and thicker.

Precision-focused shooters prefer FFP scopes as this means that the grids, hashes, and other marks on the reticle are “true” no matter what the zoom level they use. It also allows them to use the reticle in order to estimate the distance to their target. On the other hand, shooters using SFP optics can only use one specific level of magnification in order to make measurements or do anything related to ranging their targets, even if they do not intend to shoot at full magnification.

The new Vengeance 5-25x56 riflescope retails for $799. For more information on this new riflescope or other products from ZeroTech, please visit their website at
