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 Fantastic Scope. I purchased my Viper 6.5-20x44 mil-dot about five years ago. I mounted it to the recommened specs took it to the range and zeroed it in and started drilling targes out to 800m with absolutely no problems. Since then I have had no need to re-zero. It has put holes in target or animals exactly where I wanted them. After five years of range days and hunting trips I have had nothing but consistent performance from my scope. I absolutely love it.

I am getting this scope for my Howa 1500 Hogue rifle. What mounting accessories do you suggest?

Asked by: montanahunter
I recommend a 1 piece picatinny rail from www.egwguns.com and a set of our Precision Matched 30 mm rings in 0.97" height for your setup.

Thank you Mike. Why no loctite?

Asked by: jlcjohn
We recommend no Loctite on ring screws because it lubricates the screw and reduces the friction. When you reduce the friction you have to turn the screw farther to get the same inch pounds on your torque wrench and that will increase the clamping force of the rings which can cause issues with the internals of the scope functions. Loctite can give you a false reading on your torque wrench and can give you around 50% more torque than you are going for.

Will this scope withstand the recoil of .300 Remington Ultra Magnum?

Asked by: jlcjohn
Yes, it will handle the recoil of your rifle as long as you mount it in a good quality set of rings at 15-18 inch pounds of torque with no Loctite.

I just bought this scope from Midway (Viper 6.5-20x44). I am confused what rings I need, the high, medium or low? The scope is going on a Remington 700 ADL rifle.

Asked by: RodA
I recommend a 1 piece picatinny rail from www.egwguns.com and a set of our Viper 30 mm low height rings for your setup.
