Copperhead 4-12x44 BDC Riflescope

Tough construction and bright images are just the icing on the cake. Its hard anodized single-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube is nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for waterproof/fogproof/ weatherproof performance.

Dead-Hold BDC Reticle

The customized design of this reticle helps eliminate guesswork on hold-over and windage corrections. Good for hunting and shooting at varying ranges where estimating hold-over is a concern.

Subtension detail for the Viper 3-9x40 riflescope with Dead-Hold BDC reticle. >

Note
Read the Dead-Hold BDC Reticle manual for details on using the reticle for bullet drop compensation and wind drift compensation and ranging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my fourth Vortex Scope. Just bought my fourth Vortex rifle scope - a Copperhead 4-12 x 44 (CPH-412). On sale - off list. What a bargain! (12x = old eyes). I already own a Strikefire II, a Viper, and a Crossfire II. I just put this one on my new CZ Model 452, (Left-hand bolt-action) .22LR. After 10 rounds to get it on the bull, at 50 yards, it did this for me. 5-shot groups with Aguila SuperExtra 40 gr. copper round nose: 0.44", 0.66", 0.68", 0.70", 0.72", 0.72". That concludes today's demonstration. When your eyes are old . . . "Vortex is the best - forget the rest".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I have 3 I wanted a scope that had more distance and more light. I originally got one for my Remington 700 in 30-06. I used it all hunting season the clarity of the scope for the price is amazing. I wound up getting 2 more for my Mossberg MVP and Remington R15. For the price of the scope to be in the wheelhouse with other brands 500 scopes it's a deal and to add the warranty behind it is just adding ice cream to cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value scope I put this scope on a .30-06 and have been pretty impressed! The first thing that I like is the BDC reticle and using the LRBC tool. We shot 4 animals with the gun this scope was setup on and had confidence in each shot due to knowing where to aim. The next feature that I like about this scope is the forgiving eye relief. This is definitely not a Viper or Razor, but for the money is a great scope.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clear glass but... The scope does feel pretty solid and glass is fairly clear, 44mm is a perfectly adequate objective size and lets plenty of light in. The adjustment caps are easy to remove yet tighten nicely. The windage and elevation knobs are fairly sturdy feeling and have subtle but recognizable clicks. There are some issues though such as at 12x the reticle is not completely crisp / clear even after being adjusted. Once you back the magnification down to 8x and lower its fine. 12x just seems to be pushing it for this quality of glass. I also would really prefer just a simple duplex reticle on this level of scope IMHO. My biggest issue is the eye relief. At 12x the eye relief box is so narrow its almost impossible to stay in the sweet spot. I found myself spending more time moving my head a fraction of an inch and never being happy. As soon as you back it down its more forgiving but these two things make this more of a 4 - 8x usable scope. Luckily it is just on a 10/22 otherwise I would be more annoyed. My scopes of other brands are far more forgiving in the eye box which makes them more enjoyable to shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this scope would by again I use this amazing scope on a savage 22-250 for predetor hunting in he first month I had it I shot a female coyote with this deadly set up. It's a good low cost scope for who ever has a budget it has really clear glass for the price and the magnification is good although at like 10 to 12 it starts to get a little blurry other than that it's an amazing scope

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Copperhead delivers Well constructed. Stayed dialed in even through 100's of rounds through my Sako A7 rough tech 300 win mag. Focus adjustments will be needed from 4-12 power. This happens a lot for me as I hunt from one extreme to another in one day. Vortex made an outstanding scope that is far from low level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Scope I'm new to vortex scopes. I purchased the Vortex CopperHead 4-12x44 for my Remington 783 and am so pleased with the quality, clarity and durability of this amazing scope. With vortex VIP warranty and very reasonable pricing you just can't go wrong with this scope.

Would this scope work on a 450 Bushmaster?

Yes, the Copperhead would work on a .450 Bushmaster as long as it is mounted in a good set of rings and using our torque specs of 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite.

Would this be a good choice for the .450 BM in a AR platform shooting a 250gr bullet at 2200 fps. Looking for best choice for this set up.
Asked by: Greg
The Copperhead would handle the recoil of your .450 Bushmaster, we recommend following our torque specs for the scope rings of 15-18 inch pounds with no loctite.
