308jagermeister,

I have Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle Scopes on my two Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

For the rings and base and I have low Burris 30mm Xtreme Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings with an EGW 1-Piece Picatinny-Style rail (20 MOA).

I absolutely love these Vortex PST scopes and my mounting set-up.

Well for mine, I actually was in the store to buy a couple of Fullfield II™ Riflescope
4.5X-14X-42mm they had on sale at the time. I have found these are very nice for the hunting I do and figured since the LGS was having a free finance sale giving me a year to pay them off I might as well get a couple. Trouble started when I walked by the used gun rack first and saw the laminate stock and bull barrel. Then I walked out with the STW and the two scopes.

So mine is sporting one of those two Burris. These have the ballistic plex reticle in them and it matches up perfectly with the Federal factory 150gr Solid Base loads I am using. In fact that load is listed in their drop sheet which accompanies the scopes. I simply had to zero it at 200yds and the rest fall right into place out to 600. So far I haven't shot it past that, but really haven't needed to. Most things have been within 3-400yds and the 150's have reliably put it on the ground for me.

Once things settle down around here I am going to work up some new loads using the 154gr bullets from Horandy and which ever one hits the closest to the same drops will be the one I go with next. I just hope I can get them to shoot as well as the Noslers have. If not, well I DO have a small quantity of them on hand as well, so we'll see.

thanks for all the replies on what scope you're using fellas, I know it's a dead horse type question on here but its good to know what fellow 7stw brothers are using. I have a better idea of what I want now.

I'm using a Leupold VX-III 6.5-20X50mm SF Long Range with Varmit Hunters Reticle. Since I shoot heavy for caliber bullets and my goal is to shoot this out to 1000 yds and beyond, this is what I chose and works for me.

My 700bdl STW wore a zeiss conquest 4.5-14x44 for about a decade or so. I recently got a good deal on a mark 4 4.5-20x50 Mil Dot and swapped them out. The .220 swift now wears the zeiss conquest.

The new (to me) Model 70 Sharpshooter will be wearing a VX3-6.5-20x50 TMR as soon as I get my hands on it.
