Re: Help me decide on these optics
My vote would be to save up a little more and go with the Leupold Mark 4. They come illuminated, I personally like the TMR reticle, not so "busy" of a view. IMHO, learn the scope's hash marks and leave the dials alone after you get it zero'd in. I do own both, the vortex viper PST and the Leupold, Viper is nice, just not a Leupold.
