Vortex Viper HD • Dead Hold Test

July 4, 2024

Gun Talk’s Chris Cerino puts the Vortex Optics Viper HD through a rigorous dead hold test to see how it performs in various shooting conditions. We took this optic out to the range, mounted it on a precision rifle, and ran through a series of scope tests to evaluate its accuracy and reliability. From initial zeroing to extensive target tracking, we dive deep into its performance metrics and share detailed results and insights.

In our dead hold test, we checked the Vortex Viper HD's turrets and ballistic reticle by repeatedly adjusting the settings and firing at specified points on a target. This allowed us to verify the optic's consistency and precision at various distances. Despite some challenges, such as Mirage effects during extended shooting, the Viper HD consistently returned to zero and maintained its accuracy. We also explored the scope's subtensions and how they performed across different yardages, ensuring that they matched up with Vortex's specifications.

One of the standout features of the Vortex Viper HD is its high-definition glass, which provides superior clarity and less visual distortion. This makes it an excellent choice for hunters and precision shooters alike. The HD glass, combined with the illuminated reticle and easy zero-reset turrets, offers a high-quality shooting experience at an affordable price. Whether you're aiming at close-range targets in dense brush or taking long-range shots, the Viper HD proves to be a versatile and reliable companion for any shooter.
