V-Plex Reticle (MOA)

A popular all-purpose hunting reticle intended for a wide variety of hunting applications.

Subtension detail for the Viper HS 6-24x50 riflescope with V-Plex reticle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100yds is so newb... Tired shooting at 100yds? Can't see that 300, 400, 600+ yard target? Don't want to spend thousands of dollars? Get yourself the Vortex HS 6-24x50 scope! With it's amazing clear glass, awesome turrets, and accurate BDC reticle you can't miss! In all seriousness, I've never thought of shooting further than 100 yards. I have some pretty horrible eyesight and I'm not the best shooter around. When I bought the HS 6-24 I thought this will help me take down some bucks and hogs. Little did I know I would soon be bored shooting 6" steel at 300 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome Riflescope! I am replacing my old riflescopes to the Vortex lineup. As I have got older, I have needed a clearer, brighter Riflescope for my primary rifles. This scope is one of three I have purchased this year. I mounted it on a Winchester model 70 in .270 Win. I used a 20mm rail, and Vortex rings. The bore-sighting, and 100 yard sight-in was the easiest experience I have had compaired with other scopes. The Vortex LRBC, and Deadhold BDC Retical, is a great system. I have turned an old rifle new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deadly This scope is so smooth and pure. I absolutely love it. I have it mounted on my long range 300 WSM and am able to smoke my target at 1000 yds with confidence because this scope is that good. I love the lighting it takes in and how clear the glass is. Get ya one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never buy any other scope again I grew up shooting with high dollar glass such as nigh force and Leopold ,and decided to try out vortex on a couple of My rifles. Well I was not disappointed the glass would be in the same category if not better than some of thoose "higher dollar" scopes and will be all I buy from now on. I have it on everything from auto loaded rifle clear up to my .300 ultramag and it handles the abuse again and again !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again! I decide to give Vortex a try on my new hunting Rifle, after reading all the great reviews. After sighting in my rifle I already loved it. After hunting with it last year I will never go back to another brand of Optics!! The low light visability is second to none, the clarity of the glass is comparable to scopes that cost twice as much. The warranty is the best in the buisness! If anyone is on the market for a new scope buy Vortex, I plan on replacing all my scopes with Vortex optics!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Optics Period I have the original Vortex Viper. I honestly didn't think the optics could get better, but what a wonderful surprise it was. I put this scope on my new Remington 7mm and it is amazing. The clarity is far above other brand name scopes I have used. The adjustment and reach of this model is amazing as well. Everything is so clear from 50 yards to 800 yards. I could not be happier. I can happily say that all my rifles now have Vortex and will for my lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass I bought this product a couple weeks back and still haven't found anything bad to say about it. I put it on my 300 win mag and went coyote hunting on the family ranch. Sadly didn't see any dogs but I'm confident there weren't any around because I could see every detail on bushes about 400 away. Spotted a golden eagle around 300 yards away and could count how many times he blinked. Great optics lead to great stories

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEAT!!!! Put this ViperHS on a self built .223 on an AR chassis. I’ve owned other Vortex products but this was the 1st in the long range shooting. Can’t say enough good things about this product. Crystal clear like previous Vortex scopes. The side focus knob is a great addition. It was an invest for just a fun gun, but the results when shooting with the buddies is well worth it.

rest of Q. or should I go with pictanney sold one piece base and vortex rings. What height would work. weatherby vanguard 300 mag

Asked by: John
If you'd like to shoot 500+ yards, you will want a 20 MOA base, if 0-500 yards, a 0 MOA base. Unfortunately I'm only familiar with our rings and heights. If you would like to use our rings, I recommend a set of our Pro rings .97" height or you can use our Precision Matched Rings - .97" height.

I have just purchased a AR 50a1 and am looking at the viper hs 6 to mount on it, what are your thoughts on it, I am concerned about recoil and effects on the scope . thanks for any info you can give me

Asked by: nutsy
I would personally recommend the HS-T as you have exposed, tactical turrets so you can dial for elevation easily. As long as you have a high quality set of rings you won't have any issues as far as recoil.

I got the E-10 defender end cap for my Vortex Viper HS-T 6x24 50mm but it’s very loose. Did I purchase the wrong end cap for my scope?

Asked by: Rookie@62
The E-10 is the eyepiece and goes on the ocular lens, closest to your eye. The correct objective lens cap is the O-50. http://vortexoptics.com/product/vortex-defender-flip-cap-objective-50
