Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why not? Recently mounted this onto a rem700 sps tac in 223, after getting zeroed in at 100 I was playing on the metallic targets at the local range that vary from 100-345 yards. I had an older gentleman come up and start a conversation about what the gun was and optic. I explained just a good ol'rem700 in 223 with a 6.5-20 viper milldot on it. 6.5-20? Why do you need 20 power on a 223? I simply replied by saying ears please, and range a chicken size metal plate out at 325...I said that's why. I let him get behind the gun for a few shots and gave him the holds for elevation. Needless to say he was going to go buy his own Vortex Optic after that day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the Buck! I'm a man with little to no extra income so I did what any one did. Saved my pennies and researched. Jumped on forums to see what the pros said about trying to get a good bargain scope that would perform. So snipers hide forum guys said the viper. Boy were they right. Optics planet ran a sale and snatched it asap. Actually me and the best friend both grabbed one. Under 0. It's not all bells and whistles but I took it to my first ever long range competition last week. I'm terrible but the scope performed well for what I put it through. Especially against the 00+ scopes I was up against. I'm s vortex guy till death. Thanks guy for making great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope at an unbeatable price I have the Viper 6.5-20x50 PA on my Remington SPS .300Rum with a 20MOA rail and rings. I use Barnes VOR-TX 300 Remington Ultra Magnum 180 Grain TTSX Polymer Tipped Spitzer factory ammo "until I start reloading". With this setup I have had phenomenal success down range. I have set this scope up with no issue shooting great groups with no scope adjustments after sight in. I don't have the upgraded turret system but I will shortly. I use this gun for hunting ELK and a little long range action. I am a second focal plane scope guy so this thing when shooting short or long range works for me! I will be trying a Viper PST next for my bench gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I now have 2 scopes Great for low recoil like .204R, .22-.250, .243 and such because short eye relief. Would recommend extension rings or bases for mounting on long action rifles and mounting this scope on a long action Ruger M77 would involve 30mm extension front ring. Like the optics - bright clear at max power with sharp defined edges of field. Adjustments are easy to make without tools - don't need Allen wrenches for tiny Allen screws. Just pull out turn and push back. I have them set for 70 grain Berger VLD .22-.250 and 87 Hornady VMax zeroed at 200 and 2nd bar down hits at 300 for both. I can look through these scopes for hours without problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious performance and great value. I bought this Viper 6.5-20x50 Dead Hold BDC to put on a Steyr Pro Hunter Varmint in 223 Rem and was immediately impressed with the clarity. After a few shots sighting it in I was breaking clays at 330yds. The Dead Hold BDC reticle made it easy and my brother, who has little shooting experience, was able to do the same. It's light transmission when shooting rabbits and hares over a spotlight was second to none. It was noticably better than my mate's Bushnell Elite which cost 0 more. I'm already considering which Vortex scope to get to replace a Leupold scope on another rifle I own as the Leupold does not suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great News While hunting coyotes, I jumped a frozen stream and fell on my back, directly on my scope. My scope was so badly bent, I was through hunting for the day. I sent my scope in to Vortex. By return mail I received the following. Mr Butler. We are sorry that your scope is so badly bent that it is beyond repair. Please find enclosed a new scope as per our guarentee. Great news. great scope, great guarentee and great company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! I bought one of these about six months ago and mounted it on a Savage FCP-SR .308 WIN rifle. I have shot in a couple of local precision rifle type matches with it and have been very happy with it. It has held its zero perfectly and the glass is very clear! The Mil-Dot reticle is why I chose this scope and it has not disappointed me, I only wish there was a First Focal Plane option. This is an excellent optic at its price point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scopes Hi, I mounted my VIPER 6.5-20X50 PA RIFLESCOPE with the mil dot reticle on a custom A-10 Armalite Rifle. Always the Brite and clear views even in low light situations. The scope stands tall and easily holds up to the recoil of the 7.62, it stays on target always. So far I've been able to shoot a one inch group at 200 Yards. Hopefully I'll get better with more practive I Allowed ex Marine Sergent to shoot it he stated that the optics were on par with scopes costing lots more money. He further stated that he would like to set-up his next gun exactly like it. Not a bad compliment from a Iraq veteran with a Purple Heart & Bronze Star with valor. EMC SW Ret. William R. Galliher
