Re: Poll: Vortex Viper or Hawke Sidewinder

i never used the big tacky wheel on hawke scope.
I found it useless.

I mean for 3-400 $ the scope is pretty good.
Of course is not Viper PST or Nightforce nor a hi end scope. Is one average scope who holds the zero pretty well, and good glass with lock turrets knobs.

Was patently curious. I'm actually going to get one for a 308 I'm getting for a friend.

I see they have a ballistics software application on their website, geared for their reticles. Is it any good or is the G7 ballistics calculator on this site better?

Re: Poll: Vortex Viper or Hawke Sidewinder

if you get the 6-20x42 and crank the scope at 18x you will get for every 1.2 Mildot - 2MOA
pretty neat.

Re: Poll: Vortex Viper or Hawke Sidewinder

I currently have two Vortex scopes. My first is a Vortex Viper 6.5X20X50 Dead Hold B.D.C scope mounted on a Remington 700 HBBL, in 7.62mm . My second is a Vortex Viper PST 4X16X50 MilDot mounted on a Tikka T3, 338 win mag. I must say that I love them both. Vortex makes the best optic's for their price point I've found. I also own two Leupold M4 series scopes and would rate the quality of the Vortex glass to be comparable. Excellent optic's with a lifetime warranty.
