Re: New Vortex Viper HS-T (Hunting Shooting Tactical) Riflescope
Just mounted one on my 6.5 284 so far I am impressed. the turrets have firm clicks, and are true moa and thus far repeatable. I put a Viper PST 6x24 on a 300 RUM I built for my dad and it experiences a bit of uneven tunneling, the HS-T doesn't. I really like the MOA reticle it is my first departure from MILDOT reticles and I don't regret it. The field of view is the same as my MARK AR on 4.5 power, but the lack of tunneling means that it does not diminish as I increase power. I really like the fact that there is 30 MOA of hold over available in the reticle, not that I will hold over that much but it makes the reticle feel less cluttered. The 44 mil bell allowed me to use medium weaver tactical rings to keep the height down. It fits a perfect niche for me between the Mark AR 3-9 and the 6.5-20 LR/T perfect for the intended purpose of my 6.5 284, general deer elk hunting with the ability to send it out to 800, and light enough to pack for Mountain goats.
