Rated 5 out of 5 by from More then expected When I picked up the scope I was looking for a good mid range scope. After a trip to Alaska to hunt caribou at long range with my son I found I had as good a scope as you can get. It rained almost none stop for the 7 days we hunted with an avg. temp of 40 degrees F. Not one problem and was dead on when I got my shot. My son was using another brand scope that cost 5 times what I paid. Yes, he paid over $1500 for his scope just to have it fog up when we got above the 9000 ft level. He ended up mounting my viper and finishing his hunt. When we got back to Utah he went out and bought his own Viper and I just as pleased with it as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far! I picked up my viper HS 4-16x44 bdc for a steal. I purchased it to set on my T/C Venture 7mm Rem mag.... This scope with that gun = budget friendly DEADLY accurate shooting. I bought it for an elk hunt coming up this fall, haven't gotten to test it out on a real hunt yet. However, on the range it's great...seemed to track well while sighting it in. I tested the hashmarks out to 450 yds using a ballistics calculator and they are exactly where they are supposed to be. Very happy with this scope. I almost wish I had gotten the ones with the external turrets, but the capped ones work great too...and the instant zero reset is a very convenient feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Low-light Quality I bought this scope to put on my Tikka T3 .270 Win. Mounted it with DNZ rings. It was super easy to sight in this scope. Did the normal routine, and within a few rounds I had this scope dialed in. The reticle is VERY easy to see in low light conditions, something that was very important to me for hunting early and late. Windage and Elevation dials feel very durable, but are easy to rotate, but stay put. Power adjustment is quite stiff, but I'd imagine it will break in after some use. Glass is clear and bright. I also got a great price on it too, which makes the value even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I purchased this for my new X-Bolt in .308 to shoot 500yrds and less. I was pleasantly surprised at the clarity and brightness of this scope for the price point. I am also blown away by the warranty Vortex offers and support. I did have questions on the BDC reticle and when I called they answered promptly and provided the information I needed on hand. My experience was fantastic, they are my first choice for all of my optics moving forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope and so much more than expected So my brother has this scope on his Remington 700 and brought it to the range. Of course I had just bought the sweetest rifle I could get my hands on with a scope already on it that had every thing you think you would need and even more. Well here is the thing I looked through his scope and everything was clearer and sharper with way more definition. Ok his viper is better to see through but he didn't have the magnification I did so could beat him there. Well let me tell you this scope has way more than enough for out to 500 and probably even further and has all the necessities you would even need and way easier to use then mine. So hopefully pick one up next week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Target and Hunting I put this scope on my 6.5 Grendel build a two years ago. I think its one of the best values in scopes. It provides plenty of adjustment for long range target shooting and isn't too big to take in the deer woods. The adjustments are accurate and the scope is clear down to the last bit of light. While I do take this rig deer hunting I will say for my eyes the crosshairs are a bit thin when hunting anywhere but fields. My eyes lose them from time to time in the woods. That's the tradeoff on having a reticle that's fine enough to target shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First higher end scope. I bought this scope from midway mounted it to a 300 win mag savage 116, have it on a 20 moa picatinny rail with the vortex rings. Eye relief is great on this scope until you get to x16 then it's a little finicky but still far better than my previous nikons. Love the turrets easy to adjust nice obvious clicks. I also added the vortex flip up lens caps to protect the investment and they ate or a lot higher quality than others I have owned also. This scope has easily gotten me out to 700 yards and I have a feeling I'll be able to hit that 1000 finally too. Glass is clear and bright, overall a great hunting scope. I truly belive vortex has got a lifelong customer here if they keep producing and backing up a product like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope for the price! This is my first turret scope. I paired it with a 30 06 and started shooting longer ranges. This scope coupled with the lrbc allows you to shoot at distances you were never comfortable with before good glass and built tough.
