Viper® HST 4-16x44 Riflescope

Tree stands to mountain tops, bolt guns to ARs, the Viper HST is ideal for a wide range of shooting applications. Blending many of the best features from Vortex's incredibly popular Viper PST and Viper HS riflescopes, the Viper HST (Hunting Shooting Tactical) riflescope is built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube to deliver increased windage and elevation travel and optimal adjustment. An advanced optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range provides magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Incredibly precise, repeatable and durable tactical windage and elevation turrets built specifically for dialing, along with its hashmark-based reticle, top off this highly versatile riflescope’s long-range performance features.

Note
Read the Viper HST 4-16x44 with VMR-1 MOA Reticle manual for details on how to effectively determine range, holdover, windage and moving lead corrections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper HST for Long Range I recently purchased an inexpensive precision rifle(Howa 1500 308) and needed a great optic to mount on it so I chose the Viper HST for the reticle and the optical quality. Because the reticle runs the full length of the scope it allows me to easily make hold over adjustments when shooting using Kentucky windage. I also do not use a 20MOA base so this allows me to go beyond my maximum elevation adjustments for long range shooting. The scope is worth as much as the rifle but it is worth it if shooting for accuracy or distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING LONG RANGE/HUNTING SCOPE> LOOK NO FURTHER I have had the Viper HS-T on top of my Browning 300 Win for about a year now and have absolutely loved it. The quick MOA reticle helps for the long hold overs and is super easy to set up. The clarity and quality of Vortex is found through out the scope and is nothing new. Thanks Vortex for making the quality that makes our hunts quality as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! It scope is great, I don't believe you can find another even close with these options in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I bought this scope in MOA about 3 years ago for my 300wm. I wanted something I could use to accurately predict shot placement based on ballistic data. This has served that purpose and hasn't broken the bank to do so. It has reliably held its zero. It has been consistent with what my data has predicted. I've enjoyed it thoroughly.

I just recently bought a Mossberg MVP LC 308 and it came with the Viper HST 4-16x44 MRAD. My question is: Once zeroed on target, using the subtensions for elevation to sight in for farther yardage, how do I find out the yardage for my rifle? 

Asked by: Andrew
You will want to use a ballistic calculator like our LRBC: http://www.vortexoptics.com/content/lrbc.
