For long range hunting purposes, is there any benefit to FFP or SFP scopes? Thanks again guys. I have to order this weekend so please keep the votes coming.

My Viper PST is FFP. I'm not totally sold on it yet. At max zoom, the reticle gets in the way a bit. If you were going to do a FFP, I'd make sure it has an ultra-fine reticle. It does take out some of the complexity though, when using the reticle for measuring or holds.

venom600 when you get used to your scope you will be sold on it. Your reticle does not get larger then your target as you increase the power. Your target enlarges the same amount with the reticle. I love mine.

I just posted this a few minutes ago:

Debunked PST not being clear.

PS: Here you can see at the bottom a 1,000 yd. target I shot in competition with the scores and group sizes in lower right go target.

Just put 6X24X50 Sightron SIII on my Remington Custom Shop 7mm Rem. Mag. It is very clear and adjustment is dead on. I guess I'll find out if it stays that way.
