Re: pst or vx3??

The Leupold VX3 are nice hunting scopes and if you get the LR models they are nice for long range shooting. I like the PST reticles and there turrets for Long Rang shooting.

We have a few PST in stock and more on the way.

Here is a link to them.

Re: pst or vx3??

Joseph, what would be the differences between hunting and say, tactical match shooting with the Viper PST? Do you pefer one over the other? I shoot Leupold Mark 4's and Nightforce scopes for both hunting and target shooting, but would like to try the Viper. 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.

My buddies that are dedicated 1000 bench shooters, use 12-42 bench nightforce w/ target dot. I was spotting through a 65x85 ziess and thought I saw a group, and shooter confirmed it in his nightforce 6mm bullet holes @ 1003

Thats why I'm putting a 3x Boost on my 10-40x scope.
