I'd recommend the Viper HS-T, class is super clear and it comes with elevated, uncapped turrets, and you can buy custom turrets for around $75. Also features the parallax adjustment, and again the glass quality is amazing. Comes in a 4-16x44, great scope for a great price!

For the money as much as I hate to say it. The HST 4-16 is a great scopes with great options for the price. The turrets are positive and extremely repeatable. I've been a die hard Leupold guy forever. I tried Vortex when they first came out and they sucked and their customer service sucked also in my experience. I swore them off for life or longer.

My friend showed up with a Vortex HS-T 4-16x44 with the MOA reticle. I was giving him hell for frosting his rifle with crap. Which he picked up locally for $449.00.

He simply said Vortex has come a long way in the 8 or so years since you had yours. He said give it a try, so I did. He had a 100 yard zero and a dope card out to 600 yards. I fired 9 rounds dialing the dope for elevation between each shot starting at 200, then 300, 500 yards. I then dialed back to 200 and repeated the sequence two more times.

Which worked out to a 3 shot group at all three distances and having to dial for every shot.

Like I said before. I hate to say it but they were all on the money.

I've purchase 3 since. Great scope for the price and options.

Embrace the hate.

I think the world just stopped spinning, next you will be buying Tikkas

Just kidding, good review!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
