Best long range rifle scope value. Period

Why I chose the HS-T:
1 - What am I using it for? 80-90% long range precision plinking. 10-20% Coyote sniping.

2 - What Reticle do I want? Mills. Why Mills? Several reasons.

A - simplicity. Every large hash mark is 1 mill. Every smaller one half a mill. Every click on the turrets is .1 mill. 10 clicks = 1 mill. Simple numbers to deal with.

B - Familiarity. I think just about everyone has seen at some point in their life the classic cross hair reticle with mil hash marks. When I looked at reticles my eyes gravitated to it. It was easy on the eyes. It's super clean. No windage christmas tree, no numbers all over the place, no clutter. A cross with hash marks

C - Piggy backing on A, the math for ranging is easy. How every big your target is in yards multiply by 1000 and divide by how many mils it measures. That's your range. If the object is under a yard in size, multiply inches by 27.8, divide by mils. That's your range. Quick, easy to remember.

3 - How much am I willing to spend? This question was answered by process of elimination when I went down the list of features on the scopes more expensive than the HS-T and decided what I didn't need/want.

Question #1 made my choices either the PST, HS-T, or HS-LR. Question #2 narrowed it down to PST or HS-T. Question three narrowed it to HS-T when I decided

A - I don't need an illuminated reticle
B - I don't need a first focal plane

Done. HS-T is what was for me. So let's get into it.

Physical: This is a massive optic even without the sunshade. But with the sunshade it just looks sick. The measurements I read and the pictures I had seen doesn't do it justice.

Turrets: Very clear markings on all. Parallax focus on the left, elevation on top, windage on right. Very firm and audible turret clicks. Lines all line up. One complete revolution moves the reticle 5 mills. Each click is .10 mill. The red fiber optic lines are great. Very bright under sunlight. Easy way to reference how much you've turned, especially in conjunction with the zero stops and the marks that track number of full rotation

Reticle and images: Amazing. Crisp, clear, sharp. The photos I've submitted really give you an idea of the clarity and the eye relief. Mind you I literally held the scope out in one hand, held my big Samsung Note behind it, got the camera and the reticle as aligned AND as stable as I could and snapped the photos. So now imagine looking through a mounted, stable scope.

Final Verdict: I could not be happier with my purchase. This is a NICE piece of glass. Crisp, clear view. Nice sized turrets with firm positive movements. Clear markings on the turrets. Imposing looking optic with it's size.

I looked at Nightforce, a gold standard by many people and priced out their scopes that had the most similar features: Physical size, objective lens, mil reticle that is non illuminated, exposed turrets, same or similar magnification power, and same or similar mil adjustment range on the turrets. There was nothing for less than $900-$1100 more than what this scope prices out at online. I cannot see for the life of my what justifies that difference. And many reviews I've both read and people I've talked to personally have looked through both and honestly say they can't tell a huge difference. It's subtle differences that people need to decide if they are worth another $1000 bucks.

The HS-T goes for the mid $600's online. For that price you get the scope I just reviewed, plus an unlimited lifetime no questions asked warranty. So when you add that, IT REALLY becomes impossible to beat.

I'm a Vortex guy for life. Can't wait to zero it in in a few weeks.

I purchased the Viper HS-T 2-24X50 (MRAD) about a year ago, when it arrived the power ring was super stiff. I read several related complaints on this, Vortex stated to just work it out and/or apply a little warmth from a blow dryer to help distribute the lubricant put in at the factory. I worked it for over an hour watching some TV to pass the time, it did make a small difference but its still not usable. I don't do a lot of power ring adjusting at the range... I don't know if it's because I can't or just have learned to live with it. I will likely send this scope in for repair this winter I have tried everything I can think of. Even with a switch view throw lever on this I'd still bust my thumb in cold weather trying to move it. Don't get me wrong I love this scope, just very dissatisfied with the quality control, this unit should have never made it off the plant floor.

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

A gentleman at my gun shop said he would choose this over his nightforce after looking through it! Very clear glass and great in low light settings with or without the extension. Very easy to sight in and adjust on my .300WBY. Crisp movements of the turrets.

Fantastic optic with no real competition

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

I purchased my Viper HS-T last december and have used it primarily for semi-long range target shooting at 100-500 yards. It has preformed flawlessly with never a change in zero, always a clear picture, and the constant reassurance of quality. I did a lot of research before my purchase and came to the conclusion that if you are in the market for a optic in this price range you cant beat the Viper and especially the awesome warranty that Vortex offers.

Awesome clarity and solid construction

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

Have almost all makes of optics, vortex is by far the best bang for the buck, got my viper earlier this year wish I had it years ago. Easy to set up easy to set zero stops runs back to zero everytime. The weight of scope is perfect for big mountain trips. have taken it clear out to 1200 yards on steel. And everywhere in between. Just received a phone call saying my new one is in. Will be buying bino and spotting scope in the next month.

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

I have this scope set up on my .300 Win mag and use it principally for long range target shooting, with some hunting on the side during hunting season. At first I was a little concerned with the exposed turrets when hunting, but that has not proven to be a problem. Clear glass, nice positive clicks on the turrets, and a dead stop which is very helpful to know when I'm back at zero. I'm trying to think of some kind of negative, but honestly this scope has done everything I have asked.

Exceptional scope at a great value for the amount of quality

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

Just picked this scope up about a month ago and mounted on a .300 WM for a WY Muley hunt coming up in October. Love the clarity and reliability I've seen so far. The little bit I've been able to run up the range on the turrets, it's had no problem being able to come right back to zero. I own a few different Vipers now and will only continue to keep mounting them on my rifles

Exceptional customer service. Fantastic optic

By

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

I got a Ruger Precision Rifle and I wanted to get a good optic for long range shooting. I spoke with several guys at the shooting range and they told me I should go directly to the Vortex Factory store in Middleton Wisconsin. When I got there I was greeted and taken care of almost before I got through the door. I am really bad with names and it's a shame because the guy was very helpful. I had some questions on what reticle to choose (I had asked at other sporting goods stores and no one could explain the difference between MRAD and MOA). He showed me the scope with both reticles and went into a complete explanation of the differences. I was impressed with his knowledge of optics. It was nice talking to a person who is so enthusiastic about the product he sells. So I decided on the scope I wanted. The guy went to find out if they had it in stock. This is where the customer service took an unusual turn. My sales person was gone for about 10 minutes because he wasn't sure he had the scope I wanted in stock. Your show room I believe is attached to your customer call center and there where about 10 or so people at there desks and on the phone. While I was waiting, no less than 5 employees asked me if I was taken care of, what kind of scope I wanted, and what rifle I was putting it on. I manage a department in the customer service business and I know how difficult it is to find employees that like to take care of customers. So my guy came back with the scope I wanted and took me in a side office area so I could make payment. My payment was kind of a hassle because I wanted to pay in cash, debit cards and credit cards. So I asked the lady if that was ok and she laughed and joked about it. So I had to ask her, What is the deal with you people, your all so nice"? She said without hesitation "we all like what we do". Last but not least. I have used the scope every weekend since and I am more than pleased with the product. It is an exceptional quality optic.

Excellent Do-It-All Optic

By 

from Lexington, KY

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper HS T 6-24x50 Rifle Scopes:

I was looking for an optic that could do everything on my general purpose .308 - targets, hunting, whatever. I had another brand of scope with a BDC reticle, but if I wanted to try my hand at some precision or tactical rifle, that scope was not going to work well. After many months of searching, and having been super impressed with a previous Vortex purchase, I went for the HS-T. I have not been disappointed! The clarity is excellent. The versatility of the reticle, along with the ability to easily dial up and down and even make a zero-stop, has made this a great choice. I would not hesitate to recommend this optic to someone looking for a solid do-everything optic at a very good price.
