V-Plex Reticle (MOA)

A popular all-purpose hunting reticle intended for a wide variety of hunting applications.

Subtension detail for the Viper HS 6-24x50 riflescope with V-Plex reticle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100yds is so newb... Tired shooting at 100yds? Can't see that 300, 400, 600+ yard target? Don't want to spend thousands of dollars? Get yourself the Vortex HS 6-24x50 scope! With it's amazing clear glass, awesome turrets, and accurate BDC reticle you can't miss! In all seriousness, I've never thought of shooting further than 100 yards. I have some pretty horrible eyesight and I'm not the best shooter around. When I bought the HS 6-24 I thought this will help me take down some bucks and hogs. Little did I know I would soon be bored shooting 6" steel at 300 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass I bought this product a couple weeks back and still haven't found anything bad to say about it. I put it on my 300 win mag and went coyote hunting on the family ranch. Sadly didn't see any dogs but I'm confident there weren't any around because I could see every detail on bushes about 400 away. Spotted a golden eagle around 300 yards away and could count how many times he blinked. Great optics lead to great stories

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never buy any other scope again I grew up shooting with high dollar glass such as nigh force and Leopold ,and decided to try out vortex on a couple of My rifles. Well I was not disappointed the glass would be in the same category if not better than some of thoose "higher dollar" scopes and will be all I buy from now on. I have it on everything from auto loaded rifle clear up to my .300 ultramag and it handles the abuse again and again !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEAT!!!! Put this ViperHS on a self built .223 on an AR chassis. I’ve owned other Vortex products but this was the 1st in the long range shooting. Can’t say enough good things about this product. Crystal clear like previous Vortex scopes. The side focus knob is a great addition. It was an invest for just a fun gun, but the results when shooting with the buddies is well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Riflescope! I am replacing my old riflescopes to the Vortex lineup. As I have got older, I have needed a clearer, brighter Riflescope for my primary rifles. This scope is one of three I have purchased this year. I mounted it on a Winchester model 70 in .270 Win. I used a 20mm rail, and Vortex rings. The bore-sighting, and 100 yard sight-in was the easiest experience I have had compaired with other scopes. The Vortex LRBC, and Deadhold BDC Retical, is a great system. I have turned an old rifle new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again! I decide to give Vortex a try on my new hunting Rifle, after reading all the great reviews. After sighting in my rifle I already loved it. After hunting with it last year I will never go back to another brand of Optics!! The low light visability is second to none, the clarity of the glass is comparable to scopes that cost twice as much. The warranty is the best in the buisness! If anyone is on the market for a new scope buy Vortex, I plan on replacing all my scopes with Vortex optics!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Optics Period I have the original Vortex Viper. I honestly didn't think the optics could get better, but what a wonderful surprise it was. I put this scope on my new Remington 7mm and it is amazing. The clarity is far above other brand name scopes I have used. The adjustment and reach of this model is amazing as well. Everything is so clear from 50 yards to 800 yards. I could not be happier. I can happily say that all my rifles now have Vortex and will for my lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deadly This scope is so smooth and pure. I absolutely love it. I have it mounted on my long range 300 WSM and am able to smoke my target at 1000 yds with confidence because this scope is that good. I love the lighting it takes in and how clear the glass is. Get ya one!

I am looking at getting a viper HS LR 4-16x50 for a Remington 700 SPS 6.5 Creedmoor. What would you guys recommend for mount and rings for this combo?

Asked by: kevin@hornady
I would go with a one piece rail from www.egwguns.com and a set of our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 0.87" height.

Hey I'm planning on getting a Viper HS 6-24x50, id also like to have a custom turret but i was wondering with it be a second focal plane and the reticle always being the same size throughout the zoom range would the turret work on all magnification levels

Asked by: Rymar
Yes, if you are going to dial your turret you do not need to worry about what magnification you are on as the magnification has no affect on the adjustment the turret makes.

Is the Viper HS 6-24 x 50mm first focal plane???

Asked by: jramos
The Viper HS 6-24x50 is a second focal plane scope.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics
Date published: 2018-01-22

I'm wondering why this scope only has 42 MOA of adjustment and my 2 Viper 6.5x20x44 PA have 65 MOA? This is a higher quality scope? Isn't it? At least that's what I thought when I bought it!

Asked by: Buford
The Viper HS does have higher quality optics than your Viper 6.5-20x44, however the shorter turret design does not allow it as much adjustment.
Answered by: Mike at Vortex Optics
Date published: 2018-01-18

I want to shot 1000 yrds. Your LRBC site says I need 31 MOA for that range with my set up. Because there is roughly 21 MOA of adjustment available i would need a 20 MOA base. Once installed would I have enough adjustment to get a 200 yrd zero?

Asked by: Buford
It would be close and would depend on how much adjustment your rifle takes to sight in, the only way to determine that is to shoot the rifle because it will vary from rifle to rifle.

Does this have a wire, or etched reticle?

Asked by: Jroc
It has a wire reticle.
