Vortex Viper

How I decided on the Vortex Viper 2.5-10 x 44 Rifle Scope

I have been in the market for a scope for my AR-10 rifle for some time now. I have considered many different styles of optics from red dot to prism scopes but I needed something more versatile that I can use for both short range as well as long range as I would like to shoot the rifle out to 800m.

Vortex Rifle Scopes are POWERFUL!

I came across this Vortex rifle scope. It has variable magnification from 2.5 power which is ideal for close quarters shooting and by turning the bezel I can magnify up to 10 power for those long range shots. The rifle also has a milrad reticle which allows me to hold over for my rifles ballistics and also helps me to estimate range for unkown distance targets.

The reticle is also illuminated and has 10 brightness settings for use in most low light situations. If the rifle scope is set at its lowest magnification, it acts almost like a red dot prism scope. The scopes turrets are also milrad and the tactical turrets allow you to dial in adjustments for wind and distance and easily click them back to zero.

Overall this scope is exactly what I was looking for and after almost 1000 rounds it has been 100% reliable. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in taking up shooting as a hobbie.
