Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best midrange price scope around. This scope is unbelieveable. It is the second scope I've gotten from vortex, the first was the viper pa and this one is leaps and bounds better. Turrets track perfectly, audible and tactile clicks and always gets back to zero. My original intent for this score for for target shooting only because I thought it would be larger than it was, but I intend on hunting with it this fall with my 7mm rem mag. I really like the zoom numbers on it, very clever on making it with 16x 8x 5.3x and 4x for simple math on the moa reticle. Makes ranging targets very simple. Havent tried using it for holdover yet since I can dial inmy dope. Will probably buy another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper HST for Long Range I recently purchased an inexpensive precision rifle(Howa 1500 308) and needed a great optic to mount on it so I chose the Viper HST for the reticle and the optical quality. Because the reticle runs the full length of the scope it allows me to easily make hold over adjustments when shooting using Kentucky windage. I also do not use a 20MOA base so this allows me to go beyond my maximum elevation adjustments for long range shooting. The scope is worth as much as the rifle but it is worth it if shooting for accuracy or distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class Everything about this scope is amazing. The price is perfect and will fit a large group of shooters. The Glass is crystal clear , edge to edge. The HS-T offers features normally found in much higher priced optics. The Elevation and Windage turrets are robust and are very repeatable. The Zero Stop works flawlessly and is simple to set. With Utahs new Muzzle loader optic law, this scope found it's way to my CVA Accura LR. It is shooting steel with sub MOA groups at 500 yards. This scope takes the recoil and always delivers. Great quality, great value and the VIP peace of mind warranty makes my decision easy. Key reasons that I bought this scope for this rifle include, Price, Warranty, Features,Size and Reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional clarity There are a lot of optic companies out there that try to claim that they are the best well for me it’s Vortex why we’ll I like the clarity of the optics the fact that I live in a country that has some harsh conditions and my Vortex scopes have never let me down I have only had to zero my scope once and it stays on target they have made a scope that has the features I require in a optic that is great whether used at day or night they have a warranty should I ever need in the future that many other companies don’t offer what more can I say it’s a quality made product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope I Own!! Decided to get into the budget long range game and went with this scope as I will still use it for hunting purposes. It sits on top of my Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor. Glass is clear, turret clicks are precise, changing magnification is smooth as butter. Reticle is to follow and use on targets and I assuming will be on game be it stationary or moving. Haven't taken it past 100 yards, but cant wait to see what it looks like at long distances. For the price and the warranty that comes with it, you can't beat Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic I have bought and tried almost every inexpensive optic there is out there over the past 10 years I have been doing high volume shooting and I have to say once I tried the hst 4-16 in moa /moa I decided this is an amazing value for the money. I have a YouTube channel (RINGET421) where I make shooting vids as well as review vids. Since I started to buy vortex optics there hasn’t been a reason to try anything else. The glass is very clear the turrets track true to within .01% error which is right up there with the top tier optics. I use my Ziper HST on my 22lr for low price practice and plinking and it tracks repeatable and consistently. Couldn’t be more happy with the scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope, great value A buddy and I both bought the Viper HS-T 4-16x44 MRAD last winter for our long range rigs and have nothing but good things to say about this scope. We’ve been able to hit a 10” gong out to 1000m without much trouble and have found glass clarity and turret tracking to be excellent. Great scope for the money and I have recommended it to a few friends

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! Probably my favorite scope out of the Bortex family that I own. The glass and clarity are in a class of their own. The scope is durable and can take abuse and still stay zeroed, it took a trip with me down a 100 foot avalanche chute and it wasn't a gentle fall either. I would suggest to stick to either MOA or Mrad and not intermix. I learned my lesson the hard way but that's user/buyer error. Other than that it's another great purchase from aborted that I'm pleased with.
