I think, for the money, there are better scopes available.
I just dont like the super fine cross hairs. I am thinking about a Viper PST, but I just cant bring my self to choose it over the SWFA SS

Re: Vortec viper hs

I don't own one yet but my buddies have three rifles with the 4x16 HS long range viper. We have shot them several times out to 1000yds. And hunted with them this fall. Optics are good, eye relief is very good, I feel the fine cross hair allows a more precise hold at long range and I prefer the 1/2moa elevation adjustments over 1/4moa.

With most long range loads you can dial to 1000yds with one revolution or close to it. The scope has a lot of elevation travel and depending on the cartridge a canted base is usually not a requirement to get to 1000yds. Scope also has zero stop so you don't get lost on the dial.

It is also a fairly compact scope in overall length and looks well proportioned on a sporter weight hunting rifle.

I will be replacing the 6x24 viper on my 7RM with one of these in the near future. If you shop around they can be had for $429.
