Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope! I have this mounted on a purpose-built DPMS 308 Gen 1 platform I built when I turned 70 years. The rifle is for acccurate shooting at 400-600 yards. The glass clarity is excellent as well as is the reticle repeatability when adjusting. Mounted on a LaRue Tacticle 20MOA QD mount I have shot a 12" plate at 1000 yards - the glass remains clear and no problem dialing adjustments for that, or any, distance. I am now 73 and building another 308 rifle - it will definetly have a Vortex sitting on it. My younger friends and family members have been so impressed, they have purchased various Vortex products. I also have a 223 with a Vortex mounted on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! I wanted a quality rifle scope with a little more range and magnification than the old traditional 3x9 that used to sit atop my rifle. Found this scope and fell in love with it. Now this is what sits atop my 7mm REM mag that I use for big game hunting here in Idaho. Love that I was able to sight it in easily and then re-zero the index to track future changes. But so far it hasn't moved a bit since initial sight-in. Crystal clear view in the field at any magnification setting. And don't forget the Vortex flip caps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scope! This scope is amazing! The clarity and glass are top notch, the finish of the scope is beautiful. It sits on my Rem700 .308, on the range and in the field there have been ZERO issues. The windage/elevation turrets have a soid click with every adjustment and the MILDOT reticle is pretty sweet. With little instruction on using the scope, my cousin's son picked up my rifle and smoked his first elk - one shot, one kill - thanks to Vortex! I bought this scope because of the VIP lifetime was an open box demo. I was weary of buying a demo scope, but after reading countless reviews I have no doubts that Vortex has my back if anything ever happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme clarity Last year i decided to buy a rifle scope, i decided on the 6.5x20x44 Vortex Viper.I had a deer hunt in Nov 2015. Luck on my side i was able to take a huge fork horn Az mule deer buck at a distance of 420yds. The crisp and clear image was the factor in my opinion to my success. I was very satisfied with how easy it was to zero, so i recently purchased a pair of 12x50 diamondback binos and look forward to using them on my elk hunt in November 2016. Thanks Vortex, im looking at your rangefinders next, awesome products, unbeatable warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good rifle scope but terrible eye relief! If it wasn't for the terrible eye relief I would have given this scope five stars. That being said everything else about the viper is nice, durable and is reliable. Given the eye relief problem I will be selling my viper and going back to Leupold . At least until the eye relief issue is improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good My 300 winmag came in a packaged deal with a scope from another company. I used it for the first two years and thought it was okay. However, after last year's elk hunt I found myself wanting to get closer to the animal for a more precise shot, but my current scope wasn't getting me what I wanted. For Christmas I get a Vortex Viper 6.5 20-44. Although I have not had the chance to put it to use on an actual hunt yet I am amazed at the zoom and clarity so far on the range. I like the fine-focus knob on the side too. So far the only downside is the stiffness of the zoom, but the salesman said that should loosen up a little with time, so we'll see. Can't wait for opening day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent mid-price scope Good, reliable and clear scope. I was impressed by the quality and features that this scope has for the price. I have had the scope for over 4 years now and have not had a problem with it. Glass is clear and gathers lots of light. It has never lost zero and the clicks are spot on for repeatability. The ONLY thing I would change about this scope would for the clicks to be a little more positive. They aren't mushy like some scopes can be, but they are just a little soft and not as tactile as I would prefer. But that is just me being picky... The newer Viper scope models are much better in this regard

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable scope I have 2 of these scopes, both on 300wm's. They have been dependable scopes had one about 9 years and another about 6. They have seen a lot of miles and getting beat around hunting and have done well. The selector on the magnification ring is a really cool design, it makes changing the magnification much easier especially with gloves and makes it easy to see what magnification you are on. The only negatives are the low light gathering could be better, and the eye relief changes a lot from low to high magnification and is pretty short at max power, so I would recommend setting your eye relief with the scope at a mid point of magnification to make it useful at both high and low manification.
