Any reason to use an ACOG over a 1-6x?

Currently running an Acog TA11, and it's pretty easy to use with really clear glass. Love it. But it seems a huge trend lately is going to the 1-6x scopes like the Razor Vortex Gen 2 1-6x... Never been able to check one out in person, and I'd have to sell my ACOG to fund one. Not sure if this is a case of grass is greener on the other side... suggestions would be really welcome.

I'm the opposite, I started with Acogs and went to 1-6 optics. The Swaro Z6i with BTR reticle, Bushnell Elite 1-6.5 with mil reticle and Vortex Razor 1-6 with mil are a fantastic improvement for me. Vast majority of my shooting is within 100 yards, so the true 1x with daylight bright reticle is king. Don't go buy some MTac or Vortex PST1-4 and get disillusioned - the Vortex Razor 1-6 is really the only way to compare with an Acog. Versatility is a good thing.

Poo-poo the "gamer" world all one wants, but there is a reason most of them are running quality 1-6 optics. They can be accurate faster in more diverse situations. The only draw back is that you can't blow your rifle up and expect the optic to survive, but the Vortex is built like a tank, and I've never seen better glass, even in my swaro.
