"Vortex Viper HSLR 6-24X50 FFP"

All glass is perfect and turret has always been mechanically sound. I used it to take a mule deer at 588yds and an antelope doe at 537yds this year. I sent this scope back to vortex and had them change out the 1/2 min turret and install a 1/4 min turret. A couple light surface scratches and a little wear on the bottom from brass ejecting (see pics).

$775 tyd Pay Pal F&F or buyer pays fees.

It does tend to look that way in the above image, but when actually looking through the scope it doesn't seem to be at all. That is, at least to me it doesn't seem too busy. I have found it to be very helpful for quick wind holds/adjustments and also for sizing various targets down range.

FWIW, I have the same model and reticle, but in a 4-16x.

My scope works great for "aim small, miss small" practice, and hunting in the field.

You don't have the thick low-light reticle, but for hunting purposes it works great as you always know where your aim point is, the middle.

I've killed a nice 170 and 180 class buck the last two years in fairly crappy conditions at 500-600 yds, and felt quite confident because my gun and scope systems worked.

Additionally, while busy, this reticle, given you all you need to adjust to the conditions. While I always "dope and dial" for drop, $hit happens in the field and a dead phone, lost drop card, etc is a real possibility, so this kind of back up can be invaluable if you have the critter of a life time in front of you.

Anyway, this is an advanced tool(FFP/tacticle reticle) priced at the price of the standard (SFP/Duplex)cost. If I had an unscoped LR rifle, I'd be on this.

Well said and thank you for the free bump. I think you articulated my thoughts exactly. I do feel the same regarding the use of the reticle and have used it to correct in the field as well. I am surprised I still have it at the price it's at, on multiple forums to boot. I have recently considered keeping it for a new rifle down the road, but still not sure.
