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.
Psalm 144.1
