Re: Scope Ring Advise for new build needed!
Like you said I do not know that the scope you picked won't do what you want it to do.
I just meant that for the long range shooting that I do the reticle and custom turret makes it easier for me to hit what I aim at. I have many scopes with many different reticles from mil dot to target dot, 4 plex and different range finding ones. For me I would rather have less quality glass and have the adjustments be repeatable and match the measurements of the reticle.
The scope you have picked out is a very good scope with better glass than the PST, but this PST has greatly improved my long range shooting. It just makes it easier and faster to get the shots off accurately. All the clicks, hash marks and the custom turret work in combination with each other. With the other scopes I have used I always had to be figuring my calculations before shooting. Now all I have to do is range the distance turn the turret to the yardage and hold the hash marks for the wind and shoot. If the turret happens to be a little off on a particular day I only have to make a few click adjustments instead of maybe starting out by counting 89 clicks or more or I could hold higher or lower using the hash marks. In a short time it becomes second nature doing this.
I hope I have explained this well.
PS: After reading what I have just written I may still sound like I'm criticising, but don't mean to be. It is just that since I got this scope my improvement has been really great.
