One of the guys I work with just got a new Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44, standard model, not the LR.  It seems like a nice scope but I have a question that I am sure you guys can answer.  Why are there only four numbers on the magnification ring (4, 5.3, 8 and 16)?  My co-worker was wondering the same thing.  Thanks for the help.

I have that very scope.  If you look at the other side of the mag ring, you'll see multiplier numbers.  Those are the multiplier numbers for the reticle subtensions on the scope.  At 16x, it's obviously 1, then at 8, it's 2, then at 5.3, it's 3, and at 4, it's 4.  It's the precise point at the mag level you need to multiply by the given number the MOA adjustment the reticle provides.  Does that help?

I read that and understood that, I am just used to seeing more on the magnification ring, ie, on my 3-9 SS, it has 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.  I guess this scope is really designed around that feature.
