Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope even better value Being a Scout Sniper instructor I know the importance of quality and reliable gear. That is why I chose to take my Kimber rifle topped with a Vortex scope to Montana in the fall of 2016 for an Elk and Mule deer hunt. I was successful in taking a Mule deer from a very close range, 33yds to be exact. The test came for my Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 when I was faced with an elk at 1150yds. I dialed the dope on the scope and fired the shot, the elk didn't move. I had miss ranged the elk after getting my correction from the EBR-1 reticle I quickly took another shot and down went the elk. I know had I not had the Viper PST 6-24x50 I would not have made the shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown Away I bought this about 5 months ago and just got all my rifle stuff done. Using it on a Tika T3 Tac 308 with a Gemtech suppressor and could not believe how well this scope worked. Starting with the great tutorial given on there web site on install to use. Shot 6 rounds to zero at 100 yards after bore sighting. Then I used the MRAD FFP BDC to get my hold over at 300 yards and put all rounds within 6 inches. That was good for me, I am not a professional shooter by no means. This is in 1 day of shooting and some time doing research on shooting. Also just bought 1-4 cant wait to use on AR. Will give review once I shoot. Thanks for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best riflescopes I have ever owned. This past hunting season was my third year using my Viper PST. Every time I look through the scope it validates the reason I choose Vortex for all my optics. The versatility and functionality is all that I need for taking the types of shots I encounter in the field. Long to short range this scope does it all. Holds up in any weather condition. Now I have vortex on 3 other rifles, Razor HD spotting scope, and the whole family carries Vortex binos. The cost and quality of each product is second to none in my opinion. I will be a lifetime supporter of any Vortex product line. Customer service is excellent and extremely knowledgeable.
