Wow those are some beefy scope mounts, they look like rod caps on a V8....

Is that a Vortex Viper HS? If so how do you like it?I was looking to pick one up, need a scope for the new 7mag I got and trying to keep it around $500.

The glass is great but the the scope has a very short eye relief. The reticule is too thick for my liking too. The quality is on par with Nikon Monarch.
