This really is a great value, especially when you take into consideration the Vortex warranty. For this class of scope it is bright, clear and holds its zero really well on my 30-06. I love that you can see where you are at on the zoom from behind the scope (like you were looking through it) rather than having to look on top of the scope to see the numbers. You can get a feel for this in my included photos. It just makes more sense to build it that way and works really well. Everything about the scope feels tight and solid. Being that it's a 50mm objective it sits a little higher than I'm used to but that's part of the trade off for a bright scope and I can and have used this out to 400+ yards at 1/2 hr. after sunset with no problems. That's the brightness I need in my big game rifles so this works well for me. You can see from my photos that it's seen some use and abuse but I've yet to have a problem and even if I did I know I could count on Vortex to make it right. I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

Here is the all the bad parts to this scope-
Eye relief on max power is less than 2 inches. Even on low power, the eye relief is under 3 inches. If you have butler creek scope caps, the little tab that opens the eye piece will bite you on the nose. The edge clarity is horrible and you will need the sun shade when looking sunward. Maximum elevation adjustment was right at 58 MOA, not the advertised 65 MOA- The same as most Leupold 1 inch scope tubes (even though the Vortex is a 30mm tube). The adjustments are mushy and be careful not to pull up on the caps- a nice feature to zero the turret, but easy to mess up in the field.
Now for the worst part. When hunting this past Fall, the zero shifted over 2 feet at 100 yards. It took many shots to figure this out in the field. All this and the scope had not been subjected to excessive shock. After removing the scope and centering the crosshairs using a mirror, I flipped the scope over and gave it a gentle tap on the carpet. I then checked the zero in the mirror to see the crosshairs appearing to have shifted 1/2 inch in the scope. By reversing this procedure, the crosshairs returned to zero. So each time I had fired the gun, the crosshairs had the ability to shake all over.
Now the good:
The power adjustment knob is smooth and the power setting easy to see when behind the scope. The tube seems solid and rugged and has ample room for mounting on most set ups. The BDC reticle is simple and the subtensions easy to find on the website to use for your own calculations. Their customer service is great and they were willing to repair it. But in the end, customer service can't give me back a hunt you have draw in a lottery. For the price, I would go with a Leupold, but since I had been given a Swarovski, I replaced it with that and have no complaints except the cost to buy another for my next rifle! Perhaps I will give Vortex another try, but until then, my confidence in this scope is shattered.

WAs even better than I hoped.

By 

from Phoenix, Az.

When I bought the 6.5X20 Vortex Viper scope I had it bore sighted and the scope mounted at the store. Taking it out to the sheriff's range with the lead sniper for the mcso swat team, we zeroed it in at 100, 200, and 500 yds. It took a bit of time to get it zeroed at 100 yds at first, the rifle is a Remington 700 SPS Tactical with a 20 inch bull barrel and the first 3 times we fired a 3 hot group it was fairly tight but we had to play with the elevation and windage before we hit pay dirt.. At 100 yds using paper targets we were able to put 3 hot groups in a 1/4-1/2 group, with some touching each other in the 10 ring. At 200, the gun and the scope worked great with 1/4-1/2 shots being in the 10 ring. We had put a total of 58 shots through the rifle and ended up by firing at the 500 yard metal target which is located on the side of the mountain, just over the Berm of the 300 yd. range. The first shot was taken firing a bit to the left to compensate for the wind that was kicking up and I missed by a hair. I held the next two shots to the far right of the target and produced two bull eyes.. The 200 yard range we fired both at a paper target and a metal target which resulted in a consistent hit on both targets. The scope is accurate as long as your eyes are good and the sight picture is just as good as anyone could ask. At 500 yards we set the zoon to 12-14 and the picture was excellent. With a new rifle without any rounds through it until yesterday it took several shots to foul the barrel to make it become consistent shot to shot and the scope did not disappoint. I am hoping that this scope will keep me happy for quite some time. By the way, The gun was also bought at Sportsman Warehouse, as well and the only thing I want to say, while it has a bit of a jolt firing the rounds, you do get use to it and it really is a tack driver. The only change I would make is to have installed a magazine instead of the internal magazine.

Great Scope!!

By 

from Redmond Oregon

I love my Viper scope it's as clear as many of the so called high end scopes. Side PA is a great change One does not have to un shoulder the rifle to set it. The Vortex VIP Warranty is the Best. Period!!

I now have 2 scopes

By 

from Mountain West

Great for low recoil like .204R, .22-.250, .243 and such because short eye relief.

Would recommend extension rings or bases for mounting on long action rifles and mounting this scope on a long action Ruger M77 would involve 30mm extension front ring.

Like the optics - bright clear at max power with sharp defined edges of field. Adjustments are easy to make without tools - don't need Allen wrenches for tiny Allen screws. Just pull out turn and push back.

I have them set for 70 grain Berger VLD .22-.250 and 87 Hornady VMax zeroed at 200 and 2nd bar down hits at 300 for both.

I can look through these scopes for hours without problems.

Will most certainly buy more

By 

from Lamar Mississippi

I bought this optic and mounted to a 6.5 creedmoor. It is dead on. And the clarity of this optic is everything it should be. Have not found a problem. Everything about this optic is great and more than exceptional. Will most certainly buy another and would recommend to anyone

I would buy again

By 

from Gothenburg, Ne

This is my second vortex. Was saving to buy another hs but this one went on sale couldn't beat the price. Very satisfied. I put it on my 250. It's just as good as my hs. The only difference is the eye relief. I really like these scopes. My next one will b a lr ffp.

Great Scope

By 

from Alaska

I own two of these scopes, both on longer range hunting rifles and love them both, the glass quality is clear for a great price. The turrets have nice positive clicks and after a year and a half they still track properly, one of the scopes did have a faulty o-ring which allowed moisture into the scope, but thanks to Vortex and their great warranty I was taken care of hassle free and quickly!

Great for Mid-Range Shooting & Hunting

By 

from Los Alamos, NM

My Viper 6.5-20x44 is mounted on my Remington 300 SAUM. The clarity of the glass and thin reticle help make precision shots. I shoot mid-range (up to 500 yards) with my rifle and have taken it on several Elk and Barbary Sheep hunts. Great scope for both uses. This scope has held up well in all terrains I have hunted.
