Vortex Optics Viper HS 4-16x44 Long Range Scope w/ Dead-Hold BDC Reticle VHS-4305-LR Product Info

Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 LR Rifle Scope is a dual-use long-distance rifle scope made for tactical shooting and hunting. The Viper HS LR riflescopes are intended for dedicated long range hunters, and use a specially designed uncapped, rapid travel elevation turret with the CRS zero stop to accommodate the unique needs of these hunters who prefer to "dial in" elevation adjustments for long range shots. Combined with the highly effective Vortex Dead Hold BDC reticle, there is no long range hunting situation these scopes can't cover! A 4x zoom range provides magnification versatility, and the Vortex MagView Bar, a fiber optics magnification indicator with a raised, rear-facing magnification reference guide, allows clear viewing in low light conditions. The Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 Long-Range Rifle Scope has an ultra-friendly eye box with increased eye relief that gets shooters on target quickly and easily—because shooting opportunities can be measured in fractions of seconds. Vortex has built this waterproof riflescope with an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, made for ultimate durability with lenses that are locked in place with machine locking rings so they'll stay aligned through recoil and impact. The Vortex 4-16x44mm Viper HS Scope delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment. Superb optical clarity is assured by Vortex's XD glass and XR lens coatings, which work together provide this Vortex Rifle Scope with increased resolution, color fidelity, and light transmission.

The Viper HS 4-16x44 LR Long Range Rifle Scope features an exposed tall elevation turret with the Vortex CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) zero stop. Combine that with 75 MOA of elevation travel (24 MOA per revolution) and you get a rifle scope perfect for dialing precision long-range shots.

This Vortex Scope is available with the Vortex Dead-Hold BDC Reticle, featuring a customized hashmark design that helps eliminate guesswork on hold-over and windage corrections. Good for hunting and shooting at varying ranges where estimating hold-over is a concern.

Helpful Negative Review Available by Legacy Reviewer, May 20, 2011
This link is kind of misleading. This looks to be a great scope and I plan on getting one. The only issue with it right now is it does not say anything about a delay. These scopes will probably not be available until the end of June or July, that ...

Most Recent Review Vortex Viper HS LR 4x16x44 riflescope by Bulldoc, April 3, 2015
Great scope! Best scope I've ever owned. The old adage to spend as much on a scope as on a rifle I've found to be true. I much rather have a $500 gun and a $500 scope than a $800 gun and a $200 scope. The glass is clear and the tactical turret makes ...
