Viper® HS LR™ 6-24x50 Riflescope — First Focal Plane

Want to extend your effective shooting range at distances where bullet drop and wind drift become critical? Take a look at the Viper HS LR riflescope. The LR stands for long range — and we mean it. This riflescope features an exposed target-style elevation turret built for dialing elevation at extended ranges. The capped windage turret maintains the scope’s sleek lines and prevent it from hanging up on clothing, rifle cases or pack scabbards.

Viper HS LR riflescopes feature an advanced optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range for magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube for increased windage and elevation travel and optimal adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics This is the first long range scope I have ever purchased. Previously I had been very skepticle of the prices of long range optics, however I am extremely happy with this scope. I bought it to place on a tikka T3 light to use for sheep hunting. While zeroing it, i had absolutely no issues and went thru very few rounds to get the shot group in the black at 100 yards. Since that day I have been accurately placing rounds on target at ranges exceeding 800 yards, and have been able to accuratly range targets utilizing the reticle. I have no doubt that for a beginner like me or an experienced long range shooter this optic will impress you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations I started to get into PRS shooting this year and didn't want to go all out on a Gen 2 Razor until I knew I really wanted to shoot a lot of matches. So far this scope has been fantastic! The clarity is great, true adjustments, and the zero stop is exactly what I was needing to stop from dialing to far down in the heat of a competition. Very smooth magnification adjustments, although I might get a throw level just to speed things up in competition. I really enjoy the XLR reticle, I feel very confident with any holdovers I might do when I don't have the time to dial. Get this scope and you will not be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rest long rang scope. Being my first Vortex purchase I had very high expectations. Most of them were met. All adjustments have a positive and precise feel to them. Clarity in bright to low light conditions is great. FFP all the way!!!!! The included sunshade does the job. Very easy to set zero and to set zero stop. I have zeroed at 200 yard and then set the stop for 100. MOA is very easy to use, especially if you can do math in your head. My only complaint is the eye relief is not what I think it should be. I've had much cheaper scopes that were on par with the HS-LR on most things including light gathering and clarity that had a much more forgiving eye relief.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durable, reliable, but poor glass This scope is mechanically sound. It tracks great and I like the reticle. It perfectly held zeroe for two years of heavy use including lots of rough roads and getting banged around pretty good. It never drifted out of adjustment. Now for the bad. The quality of the glass leaves a lot to be desired. The clarity sucks, and it doesn’t do well in low light. I find my self using 12x instead of 24x because it image quality is bad at full magnification. It’s a moderately priced scope that works. But the clarity will leave you wishing for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own three Viper HS LR 6-24x50 FFP's First purchase is mounted onto my AR15 build in 223 Wylde. Second purchase is mounted onto my Ruger Precision Rifle in6.5 Creedmoor. Third purchase ins mounted onto my custom TC Encore in 6.5 Creedmoor. My shooting activity at the ranges attracts attention with the Vipers, punching holes in paper, and ringing the bell shooting steel at long ranges. The performance of these three is optic perfection, easy to acquire targets, adjust, and downright fun to teach others about the reticule advantages they have. Press the trigger and smile while the guys shooting beside me are experiencing frustrating results. So far I have been responsible for getting 3 fellow shooters to buy Vortex with 100% satisfaction. My daughter loves to shoot my AR!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper HS LR 6 - 24 This is my first Vortex rifle scope, im just an average guy who saved up and bought a nice gun and wanted a nice scope. It was difficult to find as they have been on back order, i take that as a good thing. i have it mounted on a Sako Finnlight 75 300wsm and it shoots 1/2 moa. im new to long range shooting, but i zeroed it at 100 took it out to 400 with approximate load data and the turret was right on. this scope will spend the next few years in the Pacific Northwest getting used a lot. it will be put to the test, i want to see how it hold up to impact and just plain abuse. until the next review, Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Products I went with the 6-24x50 FFP HS-LR great scope, the shipping was fast and friendly. I love the way I was treated as well. I used a Law Enforcement discount and they sent my a shirt with a thin blue line on it. Which is symbolic to law enforcement. I just want to let anyone out there know who is thinking of a different scope I tried several top brand scopes and I'm sorry nothing compares to the Vortex price, clarity and above all the dependability. I am a fan for life. Thanks Vortex keep making the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optic I bought my first 6x24x50 back in May of this year (2017). I was looking for a top of the line rifle scope and since I had a 4x16x44 HST sitting on a 6.5 Creedmore and let me tell what a deadly combination it is. On with the story, while out in my deer stand out walks an 8pt at the bottom of my field (300 yds away). I have my 300WSM sighted in at .75" high at a 100yds. At 300 yds the bullet hits right around 6.7" low. Now remember the elevation turret is 1/2" increments in this scope, so I adjusted my scope up 4 clicks and when I pulled the 1-1/2lb trigger the bullet was perfectly placed right behind the right leg dropping the 200lb, 8pt in his tracks. Needless to say another deadly combination. I now have purchased a second Viper HS LR 6x24x50 FFP. I'm a die hard Vortex fan and highly recommend this rifle scope to anymore looking for a top "Quality" scope. Not only do you get a top of the line scope, but it will not break the bank.

I have a Savage Axis XP in .308 with a weaver rail. Upgraded to the HS LR 6-25x50 ffp from the Nikon 6-9x40 that came with it. What size height for the rings would you recommend? Thank you.

Changing my question.  I have a Bergara premier action mountain rifle. I plan to mount the Viper hs lr 6-24x50 scope on a badger ordinance one piece 0 moa pictinny rail because it has a recoil lug. Which highe vortex precision rings do you recommend? Thx

Asked by: dtjdvm
I recommend our Precision Matched Rings 0.97" height.

what is the height to the center of the 30mm tube on the 50mm end?

Asked by: Hunter
If you are looking for center over bore, that is something you would have to measure and is going to be dependent on your setup. If you are just looking to the center of the scope as it stands alone, that would be 1.13" inches.

Hi there thanks for the previous answer. I have a 44.5mm diameter suppressor, with a ring height of 0.87" would the suppressor be visible through the scope at any range of power?

Asked by: NZ buck
The best way to know is to mount it up and see. If your suppressor was going to be visible, it would be at the lowest magnification settings and be seen in the very bottom of the scope.

Why is this scope not available in a Mil Mil setup? Are there plans to offer it?

Asked by: Mil DOT
I am not aware of any plans for it at this time, but always keep checking for new products. If you are looking for MRAD, take a look at our Viper HST or Viper PST Gen II!

I would like to cerakote my scope however I do not want to over heat the optic. Can this scope within temperatures up to 175-200 or will it cause internal damage?

Asked by: Tim91
That would damage the optic. I would recommend using the "High Temp Firearm - Air Cure" option which can be found on their website.
