Copperhead 4-12x44 BDC Riflescope

Tough construction and bright images are just the icing on the cake.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good Scope Excellent Customer Service!! I bought this Scope and put it on my 44 Mag. Yes it is a bit over kill for that gun but the price was outstanding and I had not tried a Vortex Product yet. It was GREAT and then I started to have problems with it in low light conditions. I called Vortex and told them the problem and asked what I could do. Because I was still in the middle of my deer season they sent me a new one that day!! It was on the front porch the next day and I had it mounted and ready for the weekend of Hunting!! Best Customer service period that I have ever had!! I just purchased a Crossfire 2 for my 300 Win Mag 6-18 AO. I am 100% a Vortex customer now period. Thank You Vortex for your commitment to your Customers!!

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 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed I have been looking for a scope sub 0 for my AR for awhile. I've tried a couple other brands but the light and quality just stinks. I was having trouble seeing the holes in the target at 50 yards. Then along comes JoeBob's with an amazing deal on a Vortex. I bought this little beauty and I'm pleased. I'm honestly shocked at how good the light is. The pictures below do not do it justice. Vortex is worth it. One of these days I'll pony up for the big boys... if I can find a way to hide the money from my wife.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great low price scope I was on vacation in the US recently and as I was looking for a scope for my Sako Quad .22LR, I stopped into Mountaineer guns in White Sulphur Springs (WV) for a look. I saw the Vortex Copperhead at 0 and had a look, I was impressed with the clarity and brightness immediately; In fact I was so impressed with it when I stopped in at Bud's gunstore in Lexington (KY) I also bought a Vortex Crossfire2 4-16x50 AO for my .17HMR rifle! I almost always go for Bushnell and Sightron scopes, but now I'm converted and I'll have to seriously consider replacing my Elite and S111 with equivalent Vortex!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope Mounted it on my new Browning X bolt, 30-06, shot great off the bench and put down a great whitetail at 212 yards.

Is the Copperhead 4-12x44 rated for belted mag recoil?  Specifically, 7mm Rem Mag.  For Talley 2 pc Rem 700 rings what height is recommended?  In your manual it says to torque scope to manufacturers recommended value.  Is that the ring manufacturer? 

Asked by: jeremy80
Yes, that will hold up! Our torque specs are 15-18 inch/lbs. So you can torque those to 18 inch/lbs with no loctite and you'll be good to go.

i just bought a remington model 783 308 cal. can i use the mounts already on the gun?

Asked by: david
Thanks for the question! As long as the your rings fit a 1" tube and that you have enough clearance and can look through it comfortably there is no issue with using the mounts that were previously on it.
