I have a 4-16 HS-T with mil adjustments. I was a little leery about buying one because the Viper series does not have as good a reputation for mechanical reliability as some of it's competitors. But, with the listed features at that price point, I just had to give one a try.
So far, it has not let me down. I put it on a tracking board and tracking and RTZ were accurate, as are the reticle subtensions. Subtensions can also be used at 8x and 4x by doubling or quadrupling the value as appropriate.
I also have a Bushnell LRHS on order, with the plan of flipping the HS-T to cover the cost. I'm not so sure any more. The HS-T has been good enough for me that it is going to be hard to let it go…
