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!
Ive been eyeing this one closely but have been reluctant to order until I see some reviews. Again same questions here about the 1/2 MOA ilo 1/4.

Other opinions or comments?

I also have one preordered from opticsplanet. They originally stated that they would have them around June 6th. That didnt happen. I sent an email to vortex on the 6th asking when. I received a response the next morning sayin a couple more weeks. So as of now, the 1st part of July seems accurate. All things are subject to change though.

I talked to a guy at Vortex a couple of days ago, and he said that the HS versions started to ship the day before I called. He also said that they are expecting the HS LR versions to start shipping out mid to late August. Here is to hoping its sooner than that!!!! Patience was never a virtue of mine!

Vortex customer service lady told me a couple hours ago that they hope to start receiving the rest of the standard models end of august with the HS LR models to come at some unknown time after that.
I hope she was wrong I don't want to wait that long

According to an email received from Tim at Vortex, some of the std. 4x16 models should have started shipping to Opticsplanet this week.

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

Has anyone received the Vortex Viper HS standard 4-16x50 yet ? Vortex says the LR will be shipping out towards the end of August.

Midway USA had them in July and then they were out-of-stock not expected to receive anymore of them until January 2012.

I received an email yesterday and they have the standard 4-16x50 back in stock.

I would really like to see if anyone that has received them how they compare to the PST 4-16x50.
