Vortex VHS-4303 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a 30mm one-piece tube, constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum, the Viper HS 2.5-10x44 Riflescope from Vortex delivers top-tier performance for precision long-range shooters.

The Viper HS is configured with a high-performance optical system. XD lens elements have been employed to ensure maximum resolution and contrast. The entire optical path is fully multicoated with Vortex's anti-reflective XR coatings for optimum light transmission. An optical system highlighted with a 4x zoom range provides magnification versatility. The user-friendly eye box with increased eye relief puts shooters on target quickly and easily. The Viper HS delivers increased windage and elevation for optimal adjustment. Finally, the external lens surfaces have been treated with ArmorTek - an ultra-hard scratch-resistant coating that repels water, oil, and salts.

The tube's exterior is hard-coat anodized, o-ring sealed and purged with argon gas to ensure a fog-resistant, water-tight seal. The Viper HS 2.5-10x44 features capped turrets that protect the adjustments from unexpected impacts. There is a fast reticle focus eyepiece and a fiber optics magnification indicator for clear viewing in low light conditions. Combine that with 86 MOA of elevation adjustment (12 MOA per revolution) and you get a riflescope that offer hunters and shooters an array of quality features.

  • ArmorTek Coating: ultra-hard scratch resistant coating applied to the exterior lens surfaces repels oils, salts and dirt and provides abrasion protection
  • Dead-Hold BDC Reticle: customized hash mark design helps eliminate guesswork on hold-over and windage corrections where estimating hold-over is a concern

    Vortex VHS-4303 reviews

    Viper HS 2.5-10x44 Riflescope is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It proved me wrong I was a little skeptical based on the price point, but I purchased the 2.5-10x44 Viper HS to put on a new .30-06 for the 2017-2018 hunting season. I mounted it in a set of Vortex Pro rings. I'm pretty tough on gear and it has performed well. The 30mm tube was much better in low light than the 1" tubes I've used in the past. I was happy with the glass and edge clarity for the price point as well. Is there better glass, yes, on Vortex HD models. For me, where I hunt, when 200 yards is rare and most shots are inside 150 yards, this scope has proved to be a great value. I put it though it's paces from hot 90 degree Georgia days to sub freezing and never had problems with it. Thanks Vortex!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope for the $? maybe! I got my new Viper HS Scope around the holidays (2011). I make my living in the outdoors and my optics come with me every where. If they are not tough and clear they don't make it. I have the Vortex Razor spotting scope and love It. When it came time for a new scope for my elk riffle, I wanted try a Vortex scope and see how it compared. I have had this scope for a few months. I have not used it extensively in all conditions but I have put a lot of rounds down range and I am very impressed. Quick highlights: An unbeatable warranty that I can hunt with. Very sharp image, even in low light. I love the resettable 0 turrets, so handy! Solid, strong very well built B.D.C. ( bullet Drop Compensation ) Reticle Cons: Slightly heavier than my old Weaver. But so much better! More details: I am not a bench-rest shooter. I am a hunter. I hunt rugged country though-out Wyoming. Some of the areas I hunt may be over 20 mile on foot or horse into the wilderness. I demand a scope that will not let me down. I have had other scopes fog up after hunting all day in the snow. When you are in the back country, you don't run back to the truck to switch out gear. Equipment failure can ruin a hunt. I believe this Vortex Viper is up to the challenge of fall hunting in the Rockies. I really like a scope that has a minimum zoom of 2.5x-3x I find this very useful for hunting elk in dark timber, when quick target acquisition in low light might make the difference between a full freezer and empty bellies. With the 10x maximum zoom, I feel comfortable taking those longer shots. The 44mm Objective lens on the Viper lets in a ton of light. This scope may extend my shooting by an extra 30 minutes in the morning and evening. The clear sharp image and the B.D.C reticle have added 150 yards to my shooting range. Other features that I think will be very useful are the windage marking on the reticIe. It can be used to accuracy estimate range. Very useful in hunting situations. I really love how these turrets adjust. They are easy to use and then once you are sighted in, you can reset the markers to your own personal zero. I know there are many good scopes out there. The biggest reason I love this scope is the support I get form Vortex! The life time unconditional warranty unbeatable! Period! Every time I have had a question about a product, Vortex has been friendly and helpful. Add on top of that this scope is the same price or less than other comparable scopes and Vortex is a US based company. It makes this scope a winner! I highly recommend this scope! Happy hunting and shooting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! Mounted this on an 18 inch spr 5.56 build. Scope does everything I want it to and more. For the price, glass clearity and adjustments are perfect. The turrets are simple and easy to use. This has become my go to scope on multiple rifles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10x44 Riflescope Noted scope with Dead-Hold BDC Reticle...Have the good fortune of being a RSO (Range Safety Officer)and seeing all brands of scopes at ALL price levels. I've assisted in sighting in many rifles and scope combinations for all level of shooters.Vortex scopes are among the best and most consistent at their price point, I've found. When time came to replace a scope on my AR, this was the scope I wanted. Value to other scopes costing SEVERAL $ more!After mounting (LaRue QD mount), laser boresighting (SiteLite 150), and 7 shots later, shooting 1 groups at 100m, and consistently hitting out to 300m using the BDC 300m dot. (55 & 62 GR ammo)Optics are outstanding in all light conditions, focus is crisp through all power settings. Exceptionally easy to zero out elevation & windage adjustments - lift, turn to zero mark, lower - done.Only question is when I buy the next Vortex and which rifle will it be for!On par with Zeiss, Swaro's, Leupold, etc., at many levels that cost alot more!GREAT WARRANTY, GREAT BUY!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hunting scope Perfect power range for hunting from stand in thick woods or shooting long shots out in a field. BDC tracks out to 400 yards with 168 grn .308. Love the tooless turret adustment. When you are done zeroing just simply lift the turret and turn back to zero and let it back down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright scope! I bought the 2.5-10x44 HS to put on my Browning Abolt II .30-06. I absolutely love the combination. The BDC reticle allows me to shoot out the 500 yards with precision!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent clarity and value I originally mounted this on my AR but presently it's mounted on my Savage 300 win mag. I got it done at 237 yards on this beautiful moose this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope for the money I put this on a Savage in .260 Rem. I am extremely pleased with it so far. I will be buying Vortex again!
