Want to extend your effective shooting range at distances where bullet drop and wind drift become critical? Take a look at the Viper HS LR riflescope. The LR stands for long range - and we mean it. This riflescope features an exposed target-style elevation turret built for dialing elevation at extended ranges. The capped windage turret maintains the scope’s sleek lines and prevent it from hanging up on clothing, rifle cases or pack scabbards.

Viper HS LR riflescopes feature an advanced optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range for magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube for increased windage and elevation travel and optimal adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics This is the first long range scope I have ever purchased. Previously I had been very skepticle of the prices of long range optics, however I am extremely happy with this scope. I bought it to place on a tikka T3 light to use for sheep hunting. While zeroing it, i had absolutely no issues and went thru very few rounds to get the shot group in the black at 100 yards. Since that day I have been accurately placing rounds on target at ranges exceeding 800 yards, and have been able to accuratly range targets utilizing the reticle. I have no doubt that for a beginner like me or an experienced long range shooter this optic will impress you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations I started to get into PRS shooting this year and didn't want to go all out on a Gen 2 Razor until I knew I really wanted to shoot a lot of matches. So far this scope has been fantastic! The clarity is great, true adjustments, and the zero stop is exactly what I was needing to stop from dialing to far down in the heat of a competition. Very smooth magnification adjustments, although I might get a throw level just to speed things up in competition. I really enjoy the XLR reticle, I feel very confident with any holdovers I might do when I don't have the time to dial. Get this scope and you will not be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rest long rang scope. Being my first Vortex purchase I had very high expectations. Most of them were met. All adjustments have a positive and precise feel to them. Clarity in bright to low light conditions is great. FFP all the way!!!!! The included sunshade does the job. Very easy to set zero and to set zero stop. I have zeroed at 200 yard and then set the stop for 100. MOA is very easy to use, especially if you can do math in your head. My only complaint is the eye relief is not what I think it should be. I've had much cheaper scopes that were on par with the HS-LR on most things including light gathering and clarity that had a much more forgiving eye relief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper HS LR 6 - 24 This is my first Vortex rifle scope, im just an average guy who saved up and bought a nice gun and wanted a nice scope. It was difficult to find as they have been on back order, i take that as a good thing. i have it mounted on a Sako Finnlight 75 300wsm and it shoots 1/2 moa. im new to long range shooting, but i zeroed it at 100 took it out to 400 with approximate load data and the turret was right on. this scope will spend the next few years in the Pacific Northwest getting used a lot. it will be put to the test, i want to see how it hold up to impact and just plain abuse. until the next review, Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Performance in the Field!!! I never write reviews, but this scope deserves recognition. I was in the market about 6 months ago for an upgrade, when my older Nikon stopped holding groups. My buddy has a Vortex, I was really impressed with the functionality and clarity, so I started shopping. Ended up choosing the Viper HSLR 6-24x50 FFP. Once I put it on, I couldn't believe it, the clarity and quality is mind boggling. Normally I only target shoot out to about 200 yards, but now I'm spoiled, like the milk jugs I can easily pop at 600. The clarity, FFP, and reticle make shooting so much easier, I can't believe that my old scope was so inferior. I just got home from a week long white tail hunt in Missouri, where I got to put this puppy to the test. Nice buck showed up right before sunset. It was starting to get dark, but you would never know it looking through this scope, with how much light it pulls in. He was 150 yards out, it felt like 25 looking through the Vortex. I also got a nice big body doe at 330 yards. I bounced around on a 4 wheeler with it all week, this thing is tough. My confidence in accuracy is peaking. All the guys at deer camp joked about getting shooting lessons from me, I said "just get a Vortex." Vortex is the only thing I'll put on top of my rails from here on out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durable, reliable, but poor glass This scope is mechanically sound. It tracks great and I like the reticle. It perfectly held zeroe for two years of heavy use including lots of rough roads and getting banged around pretty good. It never drifted out of adjustment. Now for the bad. The quality of the glass leaves a lot to be desired. The clarity sucks, and it doesn’t do well in low light. I find my self using 12x instead of 24x because it image quality is bad at full magnification. It’s a moderately priced scope that works. But the clarity will leave you wishing for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed Darrel Holland's Long Range school with this Completed Darrel Holland's Long Range school with this scope. I was competing against $4-5k guns and Schmit-Bender and ART Scopes (Darrels Design). This course puts you and your scope through the grinder on ranging, identifying and doping wind. Throughout this course you are constantly on the dials making changes. At the end of the day this scope performed FLAWLESSLY and held .25 MOA on windage and .5 MOA on elevation. I was up and down the dial relentlessly and can't say enough about the performance. It Held zero and never let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations Purchased a 28 nosler this past year an wanted to top it with something that would help the rifle an myself excel to it fullest potential. After reading some reviews an doing some research I decided on the viper hslr 6x24-50. It was in my opinion the best optic I could purchase an stay within my budget. All said an done I couldn’t be happier. Clarity is unbelievable in all lighting conditions. I had a goal of being consistent at 800yds. Surpassed that goal. I run all vortex. Spotter,rangefinder,binos an riflescopes. Have never been let down by their products. Thank you for making a good quality yet affordable product for us to enjoy.
