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...Read complete review

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.

Defective out of the box

By 

from Jackson, MS

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

Adjustments would not work right out of the box. I am sending it back and hopefully the next one will actually work. If the product was made in the U.S. Instead of the Phillipimes maybe this issue would have never come about. Even if the next one works I will be skeptical to ever buy a vortex optic again

By

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

Purchased the Viper HST for my 6XC rifle build. Other than a Vortex red dot this is my first Vortex scope.
First time out at the range very clear scope great MOA reticle. Easily zeroed it in and shot a 3/4 inch group at 200 yards ! I will buy another.

I loved this scope

By 

from Pocatello, ID

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

I have a custom built long range rifle that my ex boyfriend built me. This scope was on it, but it was his that he lent me until I could save up for my own. It was simple to use and easy to sight in. I loved looking though it and being able to place the animal dead center. When my 8 year relationship ended, so did my love affair with this scope and all of my other optics that I am slowly trying to replace. I will buy another one of these babies, but this entry will help me get closer to my goal. Thank you for the opportunity.

Clean brilliant scope

By 

from Florida

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

Put this scope on a 700 build in 6XC. Sighted the rifle in for the first time and shot a half inch group. The scope made it easy as it is clear and the knob adjustments were right on. Now I I've to work on my shooting as the rifle and scope combo can shoot beeper than me.

Happy dad

By 

from West Virginia

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

I bought the Viper HS-T for my dad as a retirement gift to take on an elk hunt to Montana. He ended up dialing the scope in to make a perfect shot on his bull elk at 485 yards. He was more than satisfied with the way the HS-T performed and the speed of dialing the elevation with the turret. This is an excellent scope for hunting or target shooting. We have shot out to 700 yards and it has done a wonderful job. After seeing how satisfied he was with the scope, I got him a set of Diamondback 10x42 binoculars. Needless to say, he loves them. These definitely won't be my last Vortex products.

I've switched from Leupold

By 

from Kinmundy, IL

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

I used to be Leupold to my underwear. I switched for the value, quality and the lifetime VIP. I first bought a 4-16x44 viper hs-t and liked it so much I bought the viper hs-t 6-24x50. I personally prefer the MOA reticle over the MRAD. The solid definite clicks of the turrents are nice for exact click confirmation with out looking. And the CRS stop is great because if you go past your 12 MOA adjustment (1 revolution on elevation)you will never loose track of zero! I've enjoyed this and my other hs-t for almost a year now!

Awesome scope

By 

from Caroline Alberta Canada

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

Been a big fan of the Vortex Crossfire line of scopes was the only scopes I would own. Bought this scope for my 338 lapua and man is it awesome. Vortex has done an amazing job with premium glass. I've sold all of my bushnell equipment now and strictly buy Vortex products.

Thanks Vortex your product is the only thing to bless my gunsafe!
