I was wondering if anybody owned a Vortex viper 6.5-20x44 scope and how
durable it is ? I know vortex has decent glass for the money, I am mostly interested in how well the turrets work, does it track well?

I have one on a 6.5 284 I built. So far it has performed flawlessly. I've clicked it out to 1150 yds. and back to 100 yds and it was still dead on. I'm anxious to see how it does over time.

Currently have in use two of the 50mm models....on heavy varmint rifles...

very clear glass & repeatable clicks.....

well made and backed by Vortex VIP warranty....

I like 'em....looking at the new PST series to replace a 4200 Tactical

I bought a 6.5-20X50 a few months back and love it. This weekend I shot it out to 1,000 yards side by side with my 8.5-25X50 VX-3 and the Vortex is much clearer and sharper at half the cost. It seems very predictable, and repeatable at all ranges. The only issue is the eye relief may not be enough for some of the bigger magnums.
