I know that both of these scopes are new.Which scope would be brighter and clearer.I'm thinking of just buying the Viper over the VX-3 but just wanted to get an honest opinion.I plan on using this scope on a S&W 460 magnum T/C Encore Pro Hunter for Deer, Wild Boar, Bear.

I prefer 3.5-10x50 type scope's with illuminated reticle.It well be used as a low light hunting scope for pigs.It needs to take the recoil of the S&W 460 magnum so I need good eye relief.I like the warranty with both scopes because the 460 already broke two scopes.

I do not think there are any illuminated scopes in the Vortex Viper line, although they do have a very nice 3.5-10x50.

Would you think the Viper would prove to be better than the VX-3

Which exact two models are you looking at? Viper is likely to be an appreciably better bang for the buck.  Aside from that, it usually comes down to personal preference.
