Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! I bought this scope to put on my long range rifle, planning on shooting out to 1200 yards. This scope is amazingly clear, and I'm sure I'd have no problem shooting a mile plus with it! If there's any downside to the scope, I haven't found it yet! This was my second Vortex optic I've purchased, and plan on buying a higher end scope by the end of the year for a long range AR I'm in the middle of building. Plus the Vortex staff is awesome. I stopped in wanting to buy a hat and a sticker, and they ended up giving me a hat and a bunch of stickers! Thanks for the awesome service and amazing products! Keep up the good work, and I may see some of you at Winequah!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! Not only is the company amazing and will always have your back, but their products back them up as well! I was trying to build a "one gun" rifle that could can take multiple species over the world and this viper hs 4-16x50 is perfect for that! It lets in an amazing amount of light at the early and late hours and gives me precise clicks for distance. The glass is so clear and the product is robust I never worry about it! Plus it's backed up with the VIP warranty and their amazing staff who have always gone way above the bar to help me out as a customer! Vortex has Customer for life here!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass for the price I have had this rifle scope for over 2 years and has been through everything Mother Nature threw at me while hunting. It’s been dropped and bumped while backpacking and still hold zero from when I first sighted the rifle. I can trust this product to get the job done and make sure I deliver an ethical shot on wild game. The glass is clear and the 50mm objective lens allows for a larger sight picture even at higher magnification. The dead-hold BDC reticle is simple but effective and is clear and well defined. Great scope for the price. looking back I would have gone with the 44mm option just to fit my rifle a bit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money This is my third Viper HS 4-16x50 with the BDC reticle. Love this scope - don't think you could get anything close for 1.5x the money. Great value. Clear, bright, easy to zero and holds zero well. Have one on a Nosler 7-08, a Nosler 35 Whelen, and the newest is riding a Kimber 30-06. Also have a Viper PST on a Remmy 308. I generally dislike busy reticles - this is something Vortex and I struggle with a bit. With that said, I *love* the simplicity and precision of the Dead-hold BDC reticle. By far my favorite BDC reticle on the market. Clean, simple, and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic for an everyday hunter! I have this scope mounted on a Remington 700 300 win mag. This rifle is used for whitetail deer, mule deer and hog hunting. The scope is very clear and has great eye relief while still being simple enough for an average hunter to use in the field and on the range. The quality in the vortex product lines is never questioned and their customer service is second to none. This was my first vortex optic and since I have upgraded all my rifle scopes to Vortex along with my binoculars. I have also been able to convert two of my hunting buddies to Vortex and they are pleased with their optics as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money on expensive scopes!!!!! I've been in the woods hunting since I was 7 years old,not a professional but not a rookie either.Last year I bought a new rifle at a friend's shop and was needing a scope.Ive always used Nikon or Leopold but the prices seem to increase every year and money is a big deal when you are o ly hunting for meat not horns.So he tells me look through this scope then look through this Leopold.Could not tell the difference other than the huge $$$$$ difference.Easy to sight in good from dawn til dusk couldnt be more happy.Tagged out completely with this scope on my black powder and Ruger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mid-Price Rifle Scope I was in a bind for an upcoming hunt with my dad. The rifle we had planned to take for our DIY Pronghorn/Mule Deer hunt in Wyoming had a bad scope on it (from a different brand). I took a suggestion from a friend and decided to buy this scope and man was I impressed. The quality of this scope for the price is fantastic and the warranty that backs all of vortex gear is second to none. The Deadhold BDC is a great reticle and allowed me to feel comfortable with taking shots out to 300 - 400 yards. Both my dad and I were able to take our first pronghorn at almost 300 yards within a minute of each other using this scope.
