Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope at an unbeatable price I have the Viper 6.5-20x50 PA on my Remington SPS .300Rum with a 20MOA rail and rings. I use Barnes VOR-TX 300 Remington Ultra Magnum 180 Grain TTSX Polymer Tipped Spitzer factory ammo "until I start reloading". With this setup I have had phenomenal success down range. I have set this scope up with no issue shooting great groups with no scope adjustments after sight in. I don't have the upgraded turret system but I will shortly. I use this gun for hunting ELK and a little long range action. I am a second focal plane scope guy so this thing when shooting short or long range works for me! I will be trying a Viper PST next for my bench gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex VIper 6.5-20x50 PA - Well Worth It I'm quite pleased with this Vortex Viper scope - picked it up from Dick's when they have a 25% off cyber sale. The optics are clear and crisp, smooth zoom, and the Vortex warranty is exceptional (hopefully I won't have to use it). The MIL DOT reticle is quite useful if you know how to use it (lots of tutorials on Youtube but jist is that 1 MOA ~ 1" per 100 yds, 1 MIL DOT = 3.43 MOAs at any distance so with quick simple math one can calculate range/windage adjustments at any range). I have mounted the scope on a .300 WIN MAG with a muzzle brake using Leupold quick change rings/mount system and was able to zero in 5 shots. The scope so far has held its zero without any issues, only time will tell how it holds up to the shock waves from the muzzle brake. Bottomline, this scope performs as well as scopes costing three times as much (and I have a couple of those) and the Vortex warranty is unbeatable. Definitely a must for the long distance shooter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! I bought one of these about six months ago and mounted it on a Savage FCP-SR .308 WIN rifle. I have shot in a couple of local precision rifle type matches with it and have been very happy with it. It has held its zero perfectly and the glass is very clear! The Mil-Dot reticle is why I chose this scope and it has not disappointed me, I only wish there was a First Focal Plane option. This is an excellent optic at its price point!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase great price I bought this for my 243 shooting varmits at the 5 to 600 yd distance. Good clear magnification at this range. Looses some clarity at lower light levels but overall a good solid scope for a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I have 2, 6.5-20X50's, both on light recoil .204R & .22-.250 - optics sort of approach Leupold 6.5-20X50 30mm but not quite but cost about 1/2. Have subjected both scopes to heavy use with no problems. Eye relief is quite short and ring mounting surface is limited making these scopes more suitable for short action rifles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scope! I have had this scope for a little over two months now, and I am truly impressed. The scope is mounted on a Rem 700 in .30-06. Between my son and I we have already put 3 to 4 boxes through the rifle after mounting the scope, ranging from 150 grain to 180 grain, recoil has not affected my zero and eye relief has not been a problem. We were quickly ringing steel at 300 yards with no problem. What has really impressed me is the image quality at night. We set up with green lights intermediately placed 25 yards out to 175 yards, and are able to see out to nearly 200 yards on a pitch black night. The rifle has fallen three to four feet at least twice and has held zero without a problem. I am already looking for my next Vortex scope purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nicely built, clear glass, but fatal flaw I picked this scope out to purchase after a lot of research. It is nicer than my previous Primary Arms 4-14x FFP scope as far as glass clarity and crispness in the elevation and windage dials, and the mildot reticle is sharp. The big issue: the reticle is mildot but the dials are MOA so in order to take advantage of the mildot you have to do conversions to and from the turrets. This is ridiculous. Mils for mildots and MOA for MOA reticles. Had I known this before I bought I would have selected another brand. I use mildot reticles with the Mildot Master computer and now have to add converting back and forth from MOA to mils and vis versa in normal use! I cannot say I'm a fan of both turrets being covered either. That might work OK with various types of Christmas Tree reticles but for a simple mildot or MOA reticle. These will require dialing.
