    Mtc viper turrets .

    Hi
    Has anybody who owns the above scope used it at range dialing in and out of targets . I love the scope for hunting but I don't know if the turrets would be suitable /sensitive enough for fast calculations at different range . If the answer is "no they're not" is the Hawks Sidewinder a good option ? if you are using any other affordable scope ( 200ish second hand ) I'd be interested to hear about them , in fact any advice would be of interest . Thanks for your time .Atb Ricky .

    Hi

    WE used to own MTC so obviously used the Viper a lot. The Viper works very well as it's 1/8" MOA. Sidewinder is not a bad scope either but can't comment on the turret clicks. As always try to compare side by side
    If you can't get behind our troops stand in front of them..

    I've gone from a Viper to an Airmax30, and i have to say, i prefer the turrets on the Viper. The feedback it gives from the clicks feels far better, and can be quickly set and locked.

    I actually miss my Viper, and i might swap my airmax for one in the future.

    I have several Vipers and Sidewinders, and used to have two 8-32 Vipers which I sold. Yes, their turrets give you a better feeling, but I prefer the Sidewinders lenses and its 20x reticle for longer ranges.

    Old thread, regardless of scope a 1/8th adjustment is needed for accurate adjustments if talking log range. 1/4"@100yds = 2.7"@1000m, 1/8th would be half that, provided you/gun/ammo can keep the accuracy that is !
