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:

I first used this scope on my Savage Model 10 .308 to great effect. Recently I transferred it over to a 6.5 creedmoor rifle. It tracks true through all the clicks out to 800 yards. The glass was clear even with dealing with decent mirage. I could see hits on 800 yard targets (using shoot n see targets). I own 4 vipers and it is hard/impossible to beat their quality and value. We even talked our friend into picking one up for his new rifle!

Excellent Long Range scope

By 

from State of Jefferson

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

I bought this scope to outfit a rifle I intend to Elk and deer hunt with. I was amazed with the VMR reticle considering it is tough to find a scope of this caliber that is 20x plus optical power with .1 MRAD adjustments that's not over $1000. The VMR reticle has enough "MILS" on it to hold over well beyond 800yds with most popular long range calibers. I can see myself buying another for my .308 build in the near future.

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

I bought this scope about a month ago and mounted it on a rem700 SPS .308 with a 20 MOA rail. Zeroed the rifle and the scope worked flawless. Took the rifle home and was playing with the magnification. I noticed it would get some scope shadow when on 6 power that I could not get to go away except on 8 power and up. I took it back to the dealer that I purchased it and the gun from earlier. They could see the shadow but could not tell me why and that it was normal for that range of magnification. I was not happy with the answer and began researching the problem myself. I could not find one person locally aor over the internet that could answer what was happening. I decided to give Vortec a call. I was connected with Jimmy Jordan, I explained what was happening and he instantly had an idea. I sent him a picture of my turrets. He instantly knew the problem. Because of the 20 MOA mount the elevation adjustment was close to the end of adjustment, I was seeing the entire (not just the crosshairs)reticle on 6 power. I grabbed the rifle and rotated the the elevation turret a little and bingo the shadow was gone!

Point is the customer service is top notch, The optics are great also but if you can't get service what's the point? This is my second Vortex scope and I will only buy Vortex because of the awesome optics but great customer service is just as important.

A solid scope with great features at a very reasonable price. Glass is clear, turrets are solid and audible, and comes with lens covers and sun shade. I don't really need to mention the VIP warranty.

Just mounted this on my Sav. VLP.
The quality and features of this scope are amazing... precise turrets, crystal clear glass, and a well laid out reticle are just a few of the things I love about it.....(Varmints, not so much).
I've been using Vortex glass for a decade, and wil continue to buy your products as I upgrade more of my glass on rifles that aren't already wearing them...all Vortex, all the time!

This scope is super clear aberation free. The mildot reticle is precise at 18 power and ranging is a breeze. Adjustments are posative and repeatable. If your calculations for a long shot are off, just measure your miss with the reticle and dial in what extra yoy need. No calculation. I'm fast and accurate with this baby. LOVE MY HS-T!
