Great scope for the money

by Josh, from United States, OK Written on July 26, 2014
Picked this scope up for a 7mm-08 lightweight multipurpose hunting rifle, wanted something good that wouldn't break the bank. Clear glass, feels sturdy and well built, point of aim hasn't shifted after being on several hunting trips and shooting excursions. Dials are finger adjustable, crisp and responsive, able to be reset for zero (no zero stop though). It's not a Nightforce or anything like that, but for the money it's one of the best scopes I've come across. I wouldn't hesitate buy another....
Pros:
  • durable
  • economical
  • clear glass
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • hunting

Great scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 21, 2013
Put this scope on a REM 700 in 300 Blackout and it meet or beat all of my expectations. This is my second Vortex product, the first being their red dot reflex sight I am extremely happy with the quality of both of the optics.This scope is as clear or clearer then all of my Leupold's , as good as my Steiner's and very close to my Valdada and Zeiss. You will not be disappointed with this scope. The BDC is helpful. The Scopes adjusts easily , "clicks" are positive and firm, eye relief is good power adjustment smooth and easy and it is very easy to sight in
Pros: Price , crystal clear optics,solid construction
Cons: none...

Awesome Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, LA Written on November 5, 2012
This scope is of very high quality, and is just as clear and bright as my much more expensive Leopold VX-III. I actually like it better, and it is easier to use. The zero stop is unbeatable in a scope of this price.
Pros: Very clear and bright
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Needs better glass

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 15, 2012
Dont get me wrong this is a good quality scope, however it does not have as good of glass as I had expected. Mine has a very small scratch in one of the interior lenses, that is only visible from the objective side(when looking through the scope backwards) and does not affect image quality. The quality of glass is okay for a scope with a 10x zoom if it were a 16x or a 20x it would be a problem because it starts to distort the image at maximum zoom, though from 2.5-6 zoom it's almost perfect. Unfortunatly you would have to move up to double or even triple, 800-1200 dollar, theJay price range to get a better scope, japanese or USA built. This one is made in the philipines by the same company that makes Nikon scopes. My next scope will be a nightforce 2.5-10x32, when I can afford it. It will be purchased from Optics Planet as I was very satisfied with their customer service on this purchase.
Pros: Glass etched reticle
Cons: lower quality glass...

A real hunters scope!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MT Written on February 27, 2012
I got my new Viper HS Scope around the holidays (2011). I make my living in the outdoors and my optics come with me every where. If they are not tough and clear they don't make it. I have the Vortex Razor spotting scope and love It. When it came time for a new scope for my elk riffle, I wanted try a Vortex scope and see how it compared. I have had this scope for a few months. I have not used it extensively in all conditions but I have put a lot of rounds down range and I am very impressed.



Quick highlights:

An unbeatable warranty that I can hunt with.

Very sharp image, even in low light.

I love the resettable 0 turrets, so handy!

Solid, strong very well built

B.D.C. ( bullet Drop Compensation ) Reticle

Cons:

Slightly heavier than my old Weaver. But so much better!



More details:

I am not a bench-rest shooter. I am a hunter. I hunt rugged country though-out Wyoming. Some of the areas I hunt may be over 20 mile on foot or horse into the wilderness. I demand a scope that will not let me down. I have had other scopes fog up after hunting all day in the snow. When you are in the back country, you don't run back to the truck to switch out gear. Equipment failure can ruin a hunt.

I believe this Vortex Viper is up to the challenge of fall hunting in the Rockies. I really like a scope that has a minimum zoom of 2.5x-3x I find this very useful for hunting elk in dark timber, when quick ta...
