HSR-4 Reticle (MOA)

The HSR-4 Reticle (MOA) is an ideal reticle for those who want enough information to utilize personalized ballistics, but prefer a clean look. A fine crosshair, coupled with MOA based hash-marks (2 MOA spacing), promotes fast and accurate shots from close to extended ranges.

Note
Read the Razor HD LH - HSR-4 (MOA) Reticle manual for details on how to effectively determine range, holdover, windage and moving lead corrections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vortex offering I'm a fan of the Razor LH series from Vortex. I originally purchased a 2-10 model and liked it so much I purchased a 3-15x42 as well. I went with the HSR reticle in the 3-15 and the G4 in the 2-10. G4 is simple and fast, the HSR has more to it but the thin center crosshair keeps it open and doesn't obstruct the target. Reticles is one area that Vortex seems to have the upper hand on their competition. The scope has very minimal tunneling, is lightweight, has great glass and is is covered by the best warranty. Only downside is the mushy turrets, I expected a little better. I'm assuming it was made this way to keep the weight down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressive! This scope is amazing for it's size! It now sits on my 16" .308 HBAR AR-10. I wanted a compact scope with higher than 10x power yet wanted to retain a 3x field of view......this 3-15x is perfect. I did not want tall turrets on this rifle and love the HSR Reticle for hold-over. This is a heavy rifle and did not need to add a heavy scope! You have to look through this scope to be sold on it......no fancy bells or whistles. The capped turrets are nice and the sun shade is just long enough to work well. I passed on a Leupold 4.5-14x50 LRT for this scope and I'm glad I did.....no comparison on clarity or brightness. Thanks Vortex......love the HD Razor Glass!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex success Used this on Colorado mule deer hunt on public land this year. Really like the reticle. I hunt in multiple elevations with different handloads depending on what im hunting. The simple HSR-4 MOA reticle is much easier to use with a range card taped to your stock than their standard BDC reticle. I would like Vortex to come out with more options for hunting scopes with this type of reticle, maybe add an exposed turret on top. Either way, great scope. Clear, holds zero, lightweight. Killed a big mulie at 325 yds with about 10 minutes of shooting light left. Very difficult to find any optics that combine the weight, reticle and clarity in a hunting scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality glass I own two of the 3-15x42 HD LH with the G4 BDC reticles. Optical clarity and light transmission of these scopes is fantastic. Quality glass ranks first with me over features but a 1/4 MOA exposed elevation turret would be a nice feature on this scope. However, this scope tracks true using the covered turrets. The G4 BDC reticle is simple to use in the field and draws the shooter to a central point of aim in low light conditions. I've compared it to other scopes of equal and greater value and the Razor HD LH comes out on top in clarity and light transmission. I actually parted with another well known 3-15x42 HD model scope because it was not as good as the Razor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Problem eye relief. Fuzzy at 15x Let me premis this by saying I love Viortex. I have three Viper HS scopes and my binos are Vortex. As a matter of fact, I sold my Leupod and Nikon scopes because I love Vortex. This scope however, I do not. I stepped up to the Razor thinking it'd be better than my Vipers. But no matter how hard I try, I can't get the eye relief to work. The scope is as far forward as it will go and all I get is a huge black shadow with a tiny crosshair if I can find it. I need to place my cheek all the back to the recoil pad. And at 15x, it's super fuzzy. Even after maxing out the parallax adjustment. At 10 power it's great. I should have bought the 10 ILO the 15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3-15x42 HSR-4, great product Best way i can describe this scope is an impressive minimalist design. The glass provides a remarkably sharp and clear image at longer distances with its HD coatings and solid low light performance. Field of view is perfect for hunting situations, coupled with the very forgiving eyebox design. The turrets do not have very tactile clicks, and feel a bit mushy, however i do acknowledge they are not target knobs. After box testing the scope and running it through its paces, it is consistent and repeatable. I have dialed up to distances of 800 meters and feel confident in them. The parallax adjustment is easy to manipulate without feeling the need for chanel lock pliers to turn it. Same can be said for the mag adjustment ring. Last but not least, the hsr 4 reticle. It is a great reticle due to being clean and simple. This from someone who normally shoots mrad ffp scopes. Thank you Vortex for another great product offering and listening to the needs of customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome hunting scope! Purchased this scope to go on my lightweight mountain gun, and it has exceeded expectations. The resolution is what has blown me away immediately. I can see even the finest details a long ways away. It is very bright and competes with most 30mm options in low light situations. Very wide FOV. It's very light weight and has plenty of eye relief throughout the magnification range. The reticle is perfect for hunting and super easy to pair my cartridge I am using with my ballistic calculator. Exceptional value. Looking forward to my hunt this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hunting scope on the market! I have this scope on a Bergara B-14 chambered in a 6.5 CM. The resolution on this scope is where I feel it really shines, amongst a myriad of other things. The image pops! Eye relief is long and flexible enough for any platform and use. The HSR-4 reticle is incredibly functional and easy to use, as well as a favorite for hold over in a hunting scenario when coupled with a ballistic calculator. Although it is a 1 inch tube, it still has lots of MOA travel and gathers all the light a guy would ever need and more. Solid audible clicks on the turrets. Strong tube construction. I wish I had one on all my guns. VIP warranty. A person need not look any further than vortex optics—namely the Razor HD LH series of premium rifle scopes— for their rifle scope needs.

I read in a previously that for a Benelli R1 you recommended the precision mount rings (medium). Most forums recommended the Low, can you explain why the higher option is better? also, what is the difference between the precision & the hunting rings?

Asked by: chris
It depends on the scope size as well as the objective lens diameter. That's the difference between recommended heights. The Precision Matched Rings cause less stress on the scope tube, the durability is superior and they're aligned better. The fasteners and material used are also higher quality and overall the tolerances are much better in our Precision Matched Rings.

Hello. The video shows a scope with no side parallax adjustment. The pics show it. Does it have side parallax? Thanks. 

Asked by: Anvil1
The Razor HD LH 3-15x42 has the side parallax adjustment. The two smaller Razor HD LH's do not. They might have been showing one of those in the video you were watching.

I have a Browning X-Bolt Stalker Long Range in 6.5 creedmore. I would like to purchase a Razor HD LH 3-15x42 for this rifle. Would the HSR-4 BDC recticle be the one to get? Also what type of mount and rings would work the best? Thanks.

Asked by: Beamer
The HSR-4 reticle is very popular for long range hunting and would be a great option. The Precision Matched Rings - 1 inch, 0.76 inch height should work, however it's going to be close so I recommend going to a dealer and for a dry fit to make sure it fits properly with your head position on the rifle.
