Vortex Optics’ newest variable power rifle scope, the Venom 5-25×56 FFP, aims to provide shooters with a high-quality, competition ready optic that’s both budget and learner friendly.
Features Of The Venom 5-25×56 FFP:
- 5-25 Power Magnification
- 56mm-Diameter Objective Lens
- 34mm Tube
- RevStop Zero System
- First Focal Plane EBR-7C Reticle
Vortex Optics is known for making rifle scopes that are of higher quality than their prices would suggest. While there are several reputable manufacturers of optics, Vortex brings affordability and an unconditional lifetime warranty to the table as well. Their new Venom 5-25×56 FFP is no different. This scope is shockproof, waterproof, and nitrogen gas purged to ensure that the shooter’s view through the lenses remains immaculate.
The FFP in the scope’s name stands for First Focal Plane, meaning that the reticle scales in size as the magnification level is adjusted. The Venom 5-25×56 FFP’s magnification can be adjusted between 5x to 25x zoom, and the FFP feature keeps the reticle large and visible enough throughout for accurate, long-range shooting.
The Venom 5-25×56 FFP’s reticle is Vortex’s new EBR-7C, which features technical information for quickly calculating holdovers at any magnification level. The optic is available with either MOA or MRAD measurements on the reticle. A throw lever is also included for even faster zoom adjustments. The larger 34mm tube provides ample space for turret travel, enabling a high level of adjustment for things like bullet drop.
Return To Zero
Being able to quickly return to zero can be crucial during competition use. When on the clock you want to be able to start dialing in for your next target as soon as possible. Without a quick return to zero feature, this process is much more arduous. Thankfully, the Venom 5-25×56 FFP features Vortex’s RevStop zero system, which enables the shooter to return their scope to exactly where it was previously zeroed. If competing with someone whose scope lacks this feature, you could already be calculating your next holdover while they’re still fumbling with dials.
The Venom 5-25×56 FFP follows the Vortex tradition of optics that combine premium features with ease of use and affordability. With an MSRP of $699.99, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a scope that can reach out beyond 1000 yards for less.

This scope is made in China which is how they can make em so cheap. On the plus side I’ve never had an issue with Vortex optics and the Chinese have been making awful good stuff though I hate to support their regime.
