I am no long range hunter or shooter but i am trying to get into it. I decided to go with the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44mm for my first semi long range scope to put on top of my first semi long range rifle. I am only 17 years old and picked up a brand new Remington 700 sps varmint chambered in a 243. win and as i said topped it off with a 6.5-20x44 vortex viper shooting an 80 grain sp at around 3400 fps in my rifle. So far this rifle shoots around .75 moa at 100, 200 and 300 yards. I dialed in and squeezed a few shots off at 600 yards and clean hits! this is my farthest shot to date! and i am very pleased with the scope. I will eventually replace the stock, trigger and bed the action, and blue print it when the summer pay checks come through
but untill then i will live with what i got. When the weather finally makes up its mine around here i will get out and really put this rifle to the test. Im thinking of pushing the rifle to the limits and loading some 87 grain amax and see what it can do.
I like the glass, better then my neighbors VX-3!! Customer Service is number 1!!! even though i haven't had to use it
