I have heard good things about the PST and am really considering the 6.5-24x50mm in MOA. Not sure about FFP and SFP yet. Any words of advise would help?
One Viper PST scope would go on an AR10, 308 for target shooting/ Comp to 800 yds and one on a Rem 700 7mm STW for LRH to 1000 yds.
Now that I have gotten into long range target shooting (1,000) I have come to the conclusion for me the 6-24x50mm MOA FFP PST reticule is to thick for sighting in on the center of the bull at 1,000 yds. I absolutely love the FFP reticule for hunting though.
For long range target shooting I would rather a finer reticule which the SFP PST has.
So I am setting up two scopes with the same rings that will be interchangeable on my 20 MOA Picatinny rail. I am also going to experiment with a 3x BOOSTER LENS on my SFP scope.
