Vortex VHS-4308 overview

  • 1Description

The 4-16x44 Viper HS-T Riflescope from Vortex Optics combines a high-transmission lens system and weather-sealed 30mm scope tube to create a versatile optic for close to mid-range targeting. Vortex uses optically indexed Extra-low Dispersion (HD) glass elements and fully multicoated optics, with their proprietary XR anti-reflective lens coatings, to maximize the scope's light gathering and transmission ability. This combination of optics and coatings minimizes chromatic aberration and preserves overall clarity with the resulting images being bright and sharp throughout the zoom range.

This Viper HS-T scope is configured with a VMR-1 MRAD duplex reticle in the second focal plane (SFP). Putting the reticle on the SFP keeps it in focus as the zoom is pulled in or pushed out, eliminating the need to re-focus it after every zoom adjustment. The VMR-1 MRAD pattern is a duplex-style variant with medium-weight posts at three, six, nine, and twelve o'clock that taper to a fine crosshair. Stadia lines on the central crosshairs aid in long-distance ranging, calculating hold-over, and ballistic-drop compensation.

Complementing the Viper HS-T's shooter-friendly design and image quality is the build quality to match. The scope housing is machined from a solid piece of aluminum, anodized with a corrosion-resistant hard coat, and filled with argon gas to ensure water and fogproof performance. All exposed lens surfaces are finished with Vortex's proprietary ArmorTek scratch-resistant coating that also repels moisture and dirt.

    Vortex VHS-4308 reviews

    4-16x44 Viper HS-T Riflescope (VMR-1 MRAD Reticle) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Viper HST for Long Range I recently purchased an inexpensive precision rifle(Howa 1500 308) and needed a great optic to mount on it so I chose the Viper HST for the reticle and the optical quality. Because the reticle runs the full length of the scope it allows me to easily make hold over adjustments when shooting using Kentucky windage. I also do not use a 20MOA base so this allows me to go beyond my maximum elevation adjustments for long range shooting. The scope is worth as much as the rifle but it is worth it if shooting for accuracy or distance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best midrange price scope around. This scope is unbelieveable. It is the second scope I've gotten from vortex, the first was the viper pa and this one is leaps and bounds better. Turrets track perfectly, audible and tactile clicks and always gets back to zero. My original intent for this score for for target shooting only because I thought it would be larger than it was, but I intend on hunting with it this fall with my 7mm rem mag. I really like the zoom numbers on it, very clever on making it with 16x 8x 5.3x and 4x for simple math on the moa reticle. Makes ranging targets very simple. Havent tried using it for holdover yet since I can dial inmy dope. Will probably buy another!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! Probably my favorite scope out of the Bortex family that I own. The glass and clarity are in a class of their own. The scope is durable and can take abuse and still stay zeroed, it took a trip with me down a 100 foot avalanche chute and it wasn't a gentle fall either. I would suggest to stick to either MOA or Mrad and not intermix. I learned my lesson the hard way but that's user/buyer error. Other than that it's another great purchase from aborted that I'm pleased with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope, great value A buddy and I both bought the Viper HS-T 4-16x44 MRAD last winter for our long range rigs and have nothing but good things to say about this scope. We’ve been able to hit a 10” gong out to 1000m without much trouble and have found glass clarity and turret tracking to be excellent. Great scope for the money and I have recommended it to a few friends

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope I Own!! Decided to get into the budget long range game and went with this scope as I will still use it for hunting purposes. It sits on top of my Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor. Glass is clear, turret clicks are precise, changing magnification is smooth as butter. Reticle is to follow and use on targets and I assuming will be on game be it stationary or moving. Haven't taken it past 100 yards, but cant wait to see what it looks like at long distances. For the price and the warranty that comes with it, you can't beat Vortex!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! It scope is great, I don't believe you can find another even close with these options in this price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING LONG RANGE/HUNTING SCOPE> LOOK NO FURTHER I have had the Viper HS-T on top of my Browning 300 Win for about a year now and have absolutely loved it. The quick MOA reticle helps for the long hold overs and is super easy to set up. The clarity and quality of Vortex is found through out the scope and is nothing new. Thanks Vortex for making the quality that makes our hunts quality as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Vortex Excellence Mounted on an accurized Ruger Mini-14(.223), this scope exceeds expectations. Clear, good light, and accurate clicks on the dials. A very solid scope for the price. Have had excellent results out to 400 yds and I know it can go further. I have more expensive scopes; Leupold, NightForce, and this Vortex holds its own. Highly reccommend.
