The new Viper HS LongRange riflescope from Vortex extends your effective shooting range at distances where bullet drop and wind drift become extremely critical. Its XD extra-low dispersion glass increases resolution and color fidelity to product crisp, clear views in even the harshest conditions.
The Viper HS LR 6-24×50 features a 30mm tube and first-focal-plane XLR reticle, as well as a MOA-based reticle with subtension markings down the vertical and across the horizontal crosshairs. It also features a capped windage turret and an exposed target-style elevation turret that’s built specifically for dialing in your elevation. “If you know the specifics of your rifle and what you’re pushing through it, you can dial in precise adjustments and you’re dead-on for long shots,” said Mark Boardman, Vortex’s marketing manager.
The reticle also has windage references in its lower two quadrants to allow precise holding points. And because this scope uses a first focal-plane reticle, its subtension markings are accurate throughout the zoom’s entire zoom range. “You can hold that reticle anywhere in the magnification range, and the subtension markings will remain accurate no matter how high or low you adjust the magnification,” Boardman said.
