Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! I bought one of these about six months ago and mounted it on a Savage FCP-SR .308 WIN rifle. I have shot in a couple of local precision rifle type matches with it and have been very happy with it. It has held its zero perfectly and the glass is very clear! The Mil-Dot reticle is why I chose this scope and it has not disappointed me, I only wish there was a First Focal Plane option. This is an excellent optic at its price point!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase great price I bought this for my 243 shooting varmits at the 5 to 600 yd distance. Good clear magnification at this range. Looses some clarity at lower light levels but overall a good solid scope for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 PA I'll buy one more for one of my other rifles! Full of easy to use features at an affordable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I have 2, 6.5-20X50's, both on light recoil .204R & .22-.250 - optics sort of approach Leupold 6.5-20X50 30mm but not quite but cost about 1/2. Have subjected both scopes to heavy use with no problems. Eye relief is quite short and ring mounting surface is limited making these scopes more suitable for short action rifles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from .338 Lapua Long range Sniper Out standing scope for the money and shooting 500-1000 yards. It took me 2 boxes of ammo to go from a bore site into a 8" circle at 500 yards grouping in 4" to 6", then re-zeroed and was hitting my 24" target at 1000 using the BDC with no wind. I love this scope!!! The rifle and scope are better than me but, it works well and a better shooter I'm sure can get it ever tighter groups. I'm getting another one for my .308

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope for the money I have owned this scope for a few years now, it's been on many rifles and has served me well with zero issues. It's currently on my LR-308 6.5creed. Took it out hunting in eastern Oregon for Elk and held zero with out a problem even getting bounced around on the quad.

Asked by: Fullmoon 22
This scope would work great on a .338 Lapua, we recommend using a good quality set of rings torqued to 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite.

Just got the viper 6.5-20x50 for my remington 700 sps varmint .308 rifle. Wondering what ring height I need if I go with the precision matched rings?

Asked by: Jpotter2288
I recommend a 1 piece picatinny rail and a set of the 0.87" height Precision Matched Rings for your setup.

1) Will this scope handle the recoil of a .300 win mag? I have a Crossfire II that moved after 100 rounds and now has a gouge on the tube where the scope rings where. 2) What rings will be best for the Mossberg 4×4 and this scope

Asked by: Wlfpck
Yes, the scope will handle the recoil of a .300 win mag. I recommend our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 0.97" height on top of a 1 piece picatinny rail. If you use a good quality set of rings and follow our torque specs of 15-18 inch pounds with no Loctite you should not have any trouble.

What would be a good set of rings for a Ruger Precision Creedmoor 6.5? I've just purchased the rifle and looking at this scope.

Our 30 mm Precision Matched Rings in 1.45" height will work the best on your setup.

I have the vpr-m-06fp and im curious as how the zero stop works is there not one? I have read the manual and I don't understand it.

Asked by: Jeff D
The Viper 6.5-20x50 does not have a zero stop function.

I love this scope! The question I have is that the vertical adjustment turret is very very stiff to adjust. Is this normal and just how they are made? I am hoping this isn’t going to become an issue. Thanks in advance!
