When will the Vortex Viper HS LR be out???

I have a new toy and need a scope. I have been looking at the PST's but don't need the illuminated reticle and like the price of the HS LR.

Does anybody have one? I played with one at the hunting expo in SLC and they appear to be very well built. Not sure of the 1/2 MOA elevation adjustment, I think 1/3 would be better but oh well.

Hopefully they will be available soon.

I was wondering the same thing so I called Vortex and they were thinking the end of June they should be available. I think I will give one a try.

I have been looking at the same scope and wondering about the 1/2 moa clicks also. What does everyone else think? Is that precise enough?

I talked to vortex 2 days ago, the guy told me the HS LR will not be available until late august.

The plain HS which is 1/4moa elevation clicks and has an elevation turret dust cover will be for sale sometime in June he thought? No zero stop on the plain HS and only 12 moa in elevation per revolution. I think I might try it out for now.

Does anyone know how easy it is to make sure what revolution the elevation turret is on without the zero stop? So your not a full turn off the mark in the heat of the moment while hunting?

When I searched for them earlier today I saw them showing "available" on Amazon, Opticsplanet, and SWFA. Not sure if they are mistaken and showing the wrong model, but looks right to me!

The one I was looking at was the 4-16x44 HS LR with BDC reticle.

I am also curious how the 1/2 MOA clicks do...anyone have experience with this? Seems like awful big jumps!

I also have a new build I was hoping to put one of these on. The 1/2 Moa clicks are a huge plus for my purposes (7 mag out to 1000). Rounding to the nearest half Moa, 2.5 inches at 1000 yards is the farthest I will be off do to the turret. I will be able to dial out past 1000 yards with one revolution of the turret. I have the regular viper on a 25-06 sendero and have been very pleased with it.
I was not planning on waiting until August however...
