Re: Vortex viper pst

i'm using burris extreme tactical's on both of my vortex scopes along with EGW bases. neither one needed any lapping. perfect alignment right out of the box.

Re: Vortex viper pst

My 338 has the Viper in Warne Rings and the 308 is Talley one Piece ring/mount My 223 has it in Ruger proprietary rings.

I'd say ring choice is dependent on recoil and your wallet but whatever the choice, lap and align the rings for the best accuracy.

Have you checked to see if your eye piece is focused properly? I don't have that problem with my 6-24x50mm FFP MOA PST, but I have an adjustable cheek piece.

which height extreme tactical rings? I use an EGW base, so those might be just right

I have low Burris 30mm Xtreme Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings with an EGW 1-Piece Picatinny-Style rail (20 MOA) for my PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle scope.

I have this setup on my two Remington 700 Senderos chambered in 7mm STW. Below are a few pictures of my twin Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW rifles with this set-up.

Thanks

That's almost the exact same set up I'm looking at for scope, rings and base. I have an EGW 1 piece base on my Savage, with a Sporter barrel, and I'm getting the PST 6-24X50 SFP, hopefully tomorrow
