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.

Long range setup

By 

from Arizona

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

I was recommended this scope for a Creedmoor long-range setup. Along witha 20 MOA rail, it has allowed me to clearly see targets beyond 1000 yards. Use for hunting, yet to have to re-sight after 5 days of hard use.

Perfect!

By

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

The HS-T 6-24x50 is a great match to my 6.5 Creedmoor long range gun. For the price range and features It can't be beat. There are numerous other Vortex scopes that would be very nice choices as well but with my build in mind this scope is a perfect match.

Vary clear glass

By 

from Miller SD

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

Have this on a savage 6.5 creedmoor. It is vary good in low light conditions. I am in the process of swapping out all my scopes to Vortex. I damaged this scope when elk hunting and it only took 10 days to get it fixed at no charge. The brand I was using before took 1 1/2 to 2 moths to get back. Can't go wrong with Vortex.

Outstanding scope

By 

from Laredo, TX

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

I've become a Vortex addict, which I won't complain about. This scope exceeded all of my expectations, it's mounted on my Rem 7 mag and is the go to package. The glass is clear, the turrets are crisp and feels very solid. I bought this scope to be able to see what's way out there and it does the job. Prior to this scope I purchased the 4-16x44 scope and mounted it on a AR 15, also superb. You simply can't go wrong with Vortex HS-T models.

Awesome Rifle Scope

By 

from Deatsville, Alabama

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

I purchased my Viper HST to mount on a Savage FCP-SR in 6.5 Creedmoor. It has been a perfect match. The scope is very clear and crisp. It tracks back to zero very true every time. The scope easily adjust for parralax and focus. This is my 3rd Vortex optic. I am slowly replacing all of my Optics with Vortex. Best value on the market, period!!!

Amazing scope great service

By 

from Minot North Dakota

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

I have mine mounted on a custom at that I use at 500 yards+. The clarity for the price is amazing when you consider the equivalent scopes from other people. I recently had a small problem with it and mailed it back to be worked on. 5 days later it was back in my hands and back on the rifle at no cost to me.

Excellent Tracking

By 

from Wisconsin

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

I purchased this scope to go on a Savage 12 LRP in 243. Once I had a good load worked up (.3 to .4 MOA 5-shot groups) it was time to test this scope out.

I printed a full size tracking test target and performed both a 10 MOA box test and a 20 MOA tall target test. The results were outstanding.

On the box test, the scope tracked well, with all corners of the box being within a 0.5 MOA tolerance. The real thing I was looking for here was a return to 0, and that was spot on.

The proof really came though when I check the tall target test. I zeroed the scope and printed a pair of shots. Next I dialed up 10 MOA and printed another pair (oops I pulled one). Finally I dialed up another 10 MOA and printed another pair. The best I can verify is that the scope tracked within 0.5 clicks over the 20 MOA range. That is 0.5 clicks in 80 clicks, well under a 1% deviation. Outstanding.

With the scope leveled by the turret caps, the reticle is within 1 degree of plumb/horizontal.

The stadia lines are noted to be calibrated at 18x. Mine line up with exact MOA on a target face when the power is dialed closer to 19. Within spec I'm sure, but something a shooter needs to be aware of.

Optical clarity is pretty darn good, no complaints there.

The parallax adjustment works well, although the reference lines are little off. To eliminate parallax and get optimal clarity at 100 yards, I need set the adjustment closer to 150. Not a big deal.

Overall, I am happy with the scope. It fits my purpose well and didn't break the bank.
