    How much travel does the Hawke have? I can't seem to find that info.

    In all this discourse, we know one thing for sure. Hawke optics aren't made in Fort Wayne, Indiana....

    Re: Poll: Vortex Viper or Hawke Sidewinder

    I own two HSLR Vipers with 2nd plane reticles, and recently added the newly available FFP model (all are 4-16x). With every one of them I shot a "box test" and also measured reticle subtensions against a target made for the purpose at various ranges. Each scope passed both tests with flying colors, and are holding up well over time (the first one has almost 2000 rounds of 180VLD @2905fps 7rem mag worth of recoil accumulated, with no issues). Turret tracking is great, I can run back and forth from 100 to 640 yards at my club, stopping anywhere in between, and have shot the two older scopes out to 1175 yards. I also have a Razor spotting scope, and am very pleased with it as well.
