Vortex is having a hard time filling orders for the Viper HS LRs. Demand is high. I am hoping it should be in sometime in the next two weeks.
ssliger, I will keep you posted.
Good scopes for a long-range setup are:
Top-o-the-line: Premier Tactical, Zeiss Hendsoldt, Schmidt and Bender, Steiner, March
Next tier: SWFA SS HD (best value), Nightforce, Leupy Mark 4, Vortex Viper PST/HS LR, Weaver Tactical
Budget: Fixed power SWFA SS
The above are scopes made for dialing.
Reticle based scopes for long range include:
Swarovski z3,z5,z6 with BRH or ballistic reticle.
Zeiss Diavari or Conquest w/ Rapid Z reticle.
Pride Fowler Rapid Reticle scopes.
