Thread: New scope - Vortex viper?

  1. #1

    New scope - Vortex viper?

    Looking for a new scope to go on a T3 .22-250 for shooting foxes and roe. Obvious choice is a S&B 8x56 but I like the option to vary the magnification now and again.

    Been looking at the Vortex Vipers, reading a lot of good things about them. Thinking either 3.5-10x50 with 1inch tube or 2.5-10x44 with 30mm tube. What would be best out of these? Am I better with 30mm tube or the 50mm objective.

    For a budget of 300 to 500 is one of these a good option or is there something else I should be going for?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    The used bushnell elite tactical on here. Buy it before i do. Great scope.

    If you ever need to use a night vision add-on to shoot foxes,then go with the Bushnell.
    The Vortex scopes simply don't work well with IR, but the Bushnells are excellent with IR

    Hi. I have a zeiss duralyt 3-12x50 for 380 delivered if any good?

    Thanks for the advice and offers so far, possibly interested in the Duralyt. I'd rather a simple scope with with only the mag to adjust. Max range I'll be shooting out to is about 250 yards.

    I would have a look at the hawke scopes. Their new range are great spec and glass for the price

    The 30mm tube gives you the extra elevation adjustment needed to place a shot at 800m or more. It will not in any way improve the light gathering. That is down to the size of the objective lens and the coatings.
    Go 56mm.
