Vortex® Viper® HS 4-16x50mm Dead-Hold BDC MOA SFP Reticle Riflescope


SKU: VORVHS4307 Categories: ,

Vortex Viper HS riflescopes offer hunters and shooters an array of features sure to be well received. The advanced optical system, highlighted with a 4x zoom range, provides magnification versatility. A forgiving eye box with increased eye relief gets shooters on target quickly and easily. Built on an ultra-strong 30mm one-piece machined aluminum tube, the Viper HS delivers increased windage and elevation travel for optimal adjustment.



  • XD™ Lens Elements: Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
  • XR™ Fully Multi-Coated: Proprietary coatings increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
  • Second Focal Plane Reticle: Scale of reticle maintains the same ideally-sized appearance. Listed reticle subtensions used for estimating range, holdover and wind drift correction are accurate at the highest magnification.


  • Tube Size: 30 mm diameter
  • Single-Piece Tube: Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance, as well as ensures strength and waterproofness.
  • Aircraft-Grade Aluminum: Constructed from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity.
  • Waterproof:  O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments.
  • Fogproof: Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
  • Shockproof: Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
  • Hard Anodized Finish: Highly durable low-glare matte finish helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
  • ArmorTek: Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
  • Capped Reset Turrets: Allow quick re-indexing of the turret (no tool needed) to zero after sighting in the riflescope. Caps provide external protection for turret.
  • Side Focus: Adjustment located on riflescope’s left side and is easily accessible from shooting position. Provides optimal image focus and parallax removal.

Internal Mechanism Design:

  • Precision-Force Spring System: Uses premium components in the erector-spring system to ensure maximum repeatability and ease of adjustment.
  • Precision-Glide Erector System: Uses premium components in the zoom lens mechanism to ensure smooth magnification changes under the harshest conditions.


  • MAG-View Fiber Optic: Provides a highly visible reference point for the magnification setting.
  • Fast Focus Eyepiece: Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.

Dead-Hold BDC Reticle

  • Customized hashmark design helps eliminate guesswork on holdover and windage corrections. Good for hunting/shooting at varying ranges where estimating holdover is a concern.
