Scope Question

I know I am going to get one of those new Viper PST when they become available. I am thinking of the 4-16x50 FFP. I was just wondering if this scope will be go for 1000 yd. targets. I was looking at the 6-24x50 FFP but it has 10 MOA less in elevation and windage than the 4-16x50.

I have read in other forums and books that 4-16 will work for 1000 yds. but I just want to hear some more responses from other shooters.

Oh, BTW the 6-24 is over 1.5 inches longer than the 4-16. Which is another factor that I am considering but can overlook.

Get a 20MOA mount. The 4-16x50 should work fine for 1000 yds. I'm planning on using Burris XTR low rings on my Savage 10PC with the 20MOA mount.

Re: Scope Question

Thank you for the replys. Sounds like it going to be the 4-16x50 for sure. I was already going to put a 20 MOA rail on to gain alittle more elevation for the longer yardage. I am really looking forward to get my hands on one of those PST's.
