Viper® HST™ 6-24x50 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!!! I have 3 different optics from Vortex. This by far is the best yet!! Coming out of the box looked really good. Even better on the rifle. The pricing is extremely competitive. The glass is very clear and bright. It came with the sun shade which was a plus for me. With this having a higher zoom capability I've not used my spotting scope since. The only thing I have left to do is track the scope. You will not be disappointed with this purchase!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! Great glass on this scope! I have it mounted on a precision AR platform chambered in 6.5 Grendel. Using the Vortex cantilever mount, the entire unit is rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper PST, pretty self explanatory! Great scope and like always great customer service! Thanks Vortex

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely BRILLIANT Scope I bought my HST not long after they became available in Australia. I would much prefer my scope over all other scopes I've used previously and since my purchase. I have no idea about customer service as it is flawless. Missed quite a few shots (didn't take them, lol) because I was so rapt in just looking around, ranging things and having an absolute ball. It is fitted to my Tikka 22-250, what a match. I've got it mounted in Vortex pmr rings, a perfect match. I recommend this scope, not only to friends, but to customers as well. It has WOW factor.

What would be a better model option of the Viper HST, the 6-24X50, or the 4x16-44? I am mounting it onto the Ruger Precision rifle, 6.5 creedmoor. It will be for long range shooting beginning from 800 to 1500 yards, or hunting at 600-1000 yards. Thanks!

Asked by: srr05c
Both would work well, choosing the magnification will come down to personal preference on how much you feel you need.

What height should my rings be for the Viper HS-T 6-24x50 on a winchester XPR. I'll be using the winchester XPR integrated base and rings.

Asked by: JJeskey
The medium height 30 mm XPR rings should fit your setup.

I'm stuck between a HS-T 6-24x50 and the HS LR 4-16x50. What are the main differences and which would be better for a 300 Win Mag wanting to shoot to 1000 yards?

Asked by: Tcrawf79
Both scopes would be capable of taking your .300 Win Mag out to 1000 yards. The HST is available in either MOA or MRAD on the turrets and reticle, and has uncapped elevation and windage turrets. The HSLR has a BDC reticle with MOA turrets, it has an uncapped elevation turret that is in 1/2 MOA clicks and a capped windage turret with 1/4 MOA clicks.
