That scope consistently gets positive reviews for those applications.

For anything in excess of 600 yards it could get a bit sketchy, depending on caliber and base being used. I would recommend a 20 M.O.A. picattiney base. This has nothing at all to do with the performance of the scope, just it's amount of internal adjustment.

I had the 6.5-20x50 Viper.  Not a bad scope at all.  My biggest complaint was the eye box was very critical when you hit about 16x and above, it will be worse on the 44mm objective since it will have a smaller exit pupil.  But all in all a decent scope.

I would aggree with Billy about the 20 MOA base.  Mine had 71 MOA.

I agree comepletely. Spend the extra $60 and get the 50mm objective if you can. At this price point you can't do better than this scope, IMHO. To do equal to or better, you will have to spend hundreds more.

I have the 50mm version and with a 20moa base it gets to 1000y with 29moa wound on they are a nice scope I can clearly see the white lines on a F class target at 1000y
