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.

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

Being a hunter all my life I really understand the importance of great optics. Sunlight, low-light, precision parallex,returning to my original zero after adjustments, standing up to real life hunting bumps and bruises, Vortex out performs every scope I've tried in all my 50 plus hunting years! My Nikons are long gone and now I am assured my shots will count!!

Great long range rifle scope

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I bought this to put on my 6.5CM. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be so I wanted something I could get more magnification out out without losing clarity. The scope fit the bill perfect.

Best scope in this price range

By 

from Coeur d'Alene,Idaho

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I did my homework when it came to purchasing a nice scope for my tikka .270 hunting rifle, I landed with this cortex viper 6.5-20 BDC, and I am Suler happy with it. For the money you can not beat it. Period. I like pretty much everything about this scope, the only cons I would give it would be that it's maybe just a fraction to heavy(which is fine in the case of my rifle) and the clarity at full zoom isn't as good as some super high dollar scopes, but still much better then anything in this
Price range, I would absolutely recommend this scope to anyone on the hunt for a nice set of eyes.

You pay for what you get

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

What can I say? Best riflescope I have ever bought for one of my hunting rifles. Quick simple sighting in at the range and deadly durable with outstanding clarity in every kind of weather out in the woods. I will never put another brand of scoop on one of my hunting rifles again. Simply the best.

I bought this scope to put on my AR 15. I absolutely love it. The first time I shot it I could not believe the crystal clear view and how accurate it shoots. A bonus is it looks great on it too. Would recommend to anyone needing a scope on any rifle of theres.

Viper 6.5-20x50 Greatness

By 

from Henderson, KY

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Viper Rifle Scope:

I bought the Viper 6.5-20x50 to ride on top of my Remington 700 in .308. I wanted a good optic but didn't want to spend the high dollar amounts I was finding on other competitor brands. To reach the glass clarity and build quality I found on this scope I was looking to spend more than double what I paid for this one. It was my first Vortex optics purchase and I've been a loyal customer/ supporter ever since. You'll get great clarity and amazing build quality for a great price. I'm shooting clean out past 600 yard marker and feel confident looking through this tube that I'll hit what I'm seeing. Do yourself a favor and mount a Vortex on whatever your shooting. Other than my Viper, I have the crossfire 3-9x40 on my Remington 597, a diamondback 4-12x40 on my CVA Optima and a Sparc on my Spikes AR. Hope this review helps you make the decision to get a Vortex. You won't be disappointed.

Shot one jagged hole at one hundred yds with my 22_250. From targets to coyote works great!! I even used it to fill some crop damage tags in February when the bucks were losing there horns and was able to pick out the does by looking at their heads!!
