I have a Viper PST. Love it. Perfect for what I do and a great scope for the money. If you're talking about the HD series, no experience with them but lots of good reviews.

Like Joe said, the CS is outstanding.

I'm not a Vortex user or owner, but my buddies up at the Nosler Pro Shop carry Vortex, and report very good customer comments regarding those optics. They don't carry much other than Sworvoski, Schmidt & Bender and Leupold, so that says something right there, right?

I have two 6.5-20X44 Vipers and recently got a 6-24X50 PST in first focal plane for my 6.5-284. I really like them, clear, bright and easy to operate. Best value for the money. We sell lots of them at the sporting goods store I work at. They are coming out with a new Viper HS LR this spring that should be great for varmint hunting. I replaced a 5-20 Monarch for a Viper. The HS should have better color and sharper. Unconditional guarantee. Maybe not quite as sharp as a Leupold but far less money. I will probably be getting another Vortex scope once I see the new Viper HS LR scope.

k9i449,

This is the second time you dug-up a 5-year old zombie thread. Need to pay attention to the dates.
