Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp picture, I really enjoy this scope, it holds zero very well, and the picture through it is very crisp, it far surpasses my expectations, it is a quality product at a reasonable price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great simple scope Bought this scope to hunt whitetails on the east coast and elk in Montana. I have been super pleased with it over the last 7 years. I have harvested deer at 70 yds and elk as far out as 360 yds. You just can't beat a Vortex for quality and customer satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better eye relief than other brands Was comparing this to a luepold at the local gun shop and came home with the Vortex. Not let down. Talked to customer service about a few things, gentleman was very friendly and helpful. Found out the issue was operator error. Plus, nobody beats the warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality scope for the money I mounted this Viper 4-12 on my Savage 112 7mm REM MAG and enjoy the clear view and crisp reticle on this flat shooter. Hitting 8 inch steel at 600 yards. This goes with me on my elk and mule deer hunts coming up in the fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality scope for the money! Bought this scope for my .257 Weatherby and it has been great. Clear, smooth zoom, turrets track well, and most importantly hold zero (even after dropping my rifle on a rock). I would give this a 5 star but I need to semd it back to Vortex. I noticed a small fleck in the reticle near the edge. Doesnt affect its performance at all, just irritates me. Will change my star rating once I get the scope back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. This scope has great glass and the eye relief wonderful. On the range I can see better thru the scope then my spotting scope. Good bang for the buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vivid and Bright Very high quality optics, especially considering the price. Used to take a bison at 220 yards this year.
