Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you go wrong with a vortex? Bought this scope for a remington 700 chambered in 7mm rem mag. The rifle is primarily a deer slayer for me with the ocational exception of a very effective over-weight paper-punch. When I looked for a scope i new I needed something that would hold-up to the recoil of a magnum cartridge, wouldnt bog me down with exessive weight, and had good crisp clarity for those early mornings and late evenings. This scope met all my needs, plus, vortex gives me the peace of mind that I will always have the scope I want with the backing of the VIP warenty. Thank-you vortex! If there were one thing to change it would be ....I'm not sure... I'm at a loss for words...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It proved me wrong I was a little skeptical based on the price point, but I purchased the 2.5-10x44 Viper HS to put on a new .30-06 for the 2017-2018 hunting season. I mounted it in a set of Vortex Pro rings. I'm pretty tough on gear and it has performed well. The 30mm tube was much better in low light than the 1" tubes I've used in the past. I was happy with the glass and edge clarity for the price point as well. Is there better glass, yes, on Vortex HD models. For me, where I hunt, when 200 yards is rare and most shots are inside 150 yards, this scope has proved to be a great value. I put it though it's paces from hot 90 degree Georgia days to sub freezing and never had problems with it. Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope for My Hunting Rifle Love this scope. Taken it all over NM and Wyoming, and hunted on days that were 6 degrees and snowing and days that were 80+ degrees and raining (and most everything in between). The glass is excellent and I'm getting a few more minutes hunting in the morning and evening than my buddies with more expensive scopes from other manufacturers. Obviously it won't compare to an 80mm spotter but for the weight, and magnification range this scope is perfect for my everyday hunting needs and I'm proud to have it sit on my hunting rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great "Hunting Minded" Scope! I bought this scope for my Savage 22-250. The clarity is awesome on all levels. I have used this for shooting coyotes close to dusk and was able to see clearly with the zoom all the way to 10. I love that the turrets are capped but are still raised to make quick adjustments when needed. I don't have to worry about the turrets moving when I'm going to and from my spot or going through brush. With the aid of a ballistics calculator, I hit an 8" steel plate at 408 yards. This scope allows for precise shooting and great warranty to boot. If I needed another scope, I would probably get this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope, warranty, and customer service! This is a crystal clear scope and should work for just about any application. I did have small issue with mine. I mounted it on a T/C Pro Hunter .460 S&W magnum and the magnification ring seemed to have bound up (not sure if it was from gun recoil or just an issue with the scope). This all happened the week before OH gun season opened. I called Vortex, told them my situation, they told me they would not let me miss my hunt and sent me an overnight shipment label on Monday to send my scope to them, either repaired or replaced my scope, and I had a scope in my hands on Wednesday. That is customer service! I will buy nothing but Vortex from here on out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Claims 400 yds kill on .460 S&W Magnum I mounted the scope on a Thompson Center Encore in .460 S&W Magnum with the katahdin barrel. I had sighted the gun in at 100 yds. During Ohio's gun season I was hunting over a large field.Just before end of shooting light a buck walked out at 400 yds. After following the BDC guidelines and a few of my own calculations I dropped that deer in his tracks. It wasn't just a luck shot because I followed it with a second shot right into the vitals. Excellent clarity even in low light conditions. Plenty of zoom, and the BDC reticle works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never need another rifle scope I purchased this scope for my savage 308 a few years ago. It's had hundreds of rounds down range and never had a single issue. The clarity of the scope has extended my range and accuracy beyond belief. I have taken mule deer at 300 yards with one well placed shot using the hash marks of the scope, and hit targets at 900 using the easily adjustable turrets.Dont let the 2.5x10 power discourage you either, as I can see better at 10x then most 12 to 16 power scopes I've tried. I would recommend this scope to anyone over any other brand and will be putting vortex optics on every rifle I purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkably Clear! Had a Savage 220F shotgun customized from bolt to the stock and there was no question after putting the Viper HS 2.5-10x44 with BDC on my new muzzy last year that this rifle needed one too. The versatility of these scopes is awesome; low power for instant target acquisition and wide FOV in tight woods deer hunting and the ability to crank it up to 10x for a better sight picture on the range with zero compromise in clarity or distortion - these scopes are tack sharp all the way through. These scopes are unbelievably clear and the eye relief is perfect for these guns that like to kick a bit
