This is a crystal clear scope and should work for just about any application. I did have small issue with mine. I mounted it on a T/C Pro Hunter .460 S&W magnum and the magnification ring seemed to have bound up (not sure if it was from gun recoil or just an issue with the scope). This all happened the week before OH gun season opened. I called Vortex, told them my situation, they told me they would not let me miss my hunt and sent me an overnight shipment label on Monday to send my scope to them, either repaired or replaced my scope, and I had a scope in my hands on Wednesday. That is customer service! I will buy nothing but Vortex from here on out!
I bought this for a custom AR 10 I built for deer hunting max range of 500 yards for up her in New England, couldn't be happier, went to the range to zero for 100 yards, and shooting 3" metal plate at 200, let my friend try it and he wants to build an AR 10 just to put this scope on it. I never give 5 stars for anything but almost did for this. Only bad thing about is I lost my excuse as to why I missed that deer.
I was a little skeptical based on the price point, but I purchased the 2.5-10x44 Viper HS to put on a new .30-06 for the 2017-2018 hunting season. I mounted it in a set of Vortex Pro rings. I'm pretty tough on gear and it has performed well. The 30mm tube was much better in low light than the 1" tubes I've used in the past. I was happy with the glass and edge clarity for the price point as well. Is there better glass, yes, on Vortex HD models. For me, where I hunt, when 200 yards is rare and most shots are inside 150 yards, this scope has proved to be a great value. I put it though it's paces from hot 90 degree Georgia days to sub freezing and never had problems with it. Thanks Vortex!
I set this scope on my custom 03a3 barreled in .270 Winchester for hunting deer. I was able to see clearly through scope to 250+ yds before legal shooting time in North Missouri. All the internals are crisp and stay put, I love this scope for this application.
The clarity on this scope is unreal. I have always bought less expensive scopes and I have been let down so I bought the Viper HS and I will never get anything but this quality of scope again. Highly recommend!
