Re: Viper PST 6-24X50 FFP Vs SIII Tactical 8-32X56
I run the Sightron SIII 8-32x56 moa and have a buddy that has a 6-24 PST FFP on his new hunting rig.
I spotted for him sitting behind that PST one day and messed around with it quite a bit, I wouldn't touch it for long range anything, that reticle was way too thick for me at 24x, he didn't care for that either, but Elk aren't small...
For features, the PST obviously has more and wins, for glass I have to go with my Sightron, and one thing; you can't compare the sightron on 32x to the PST at 24x, make sure if you guys are comparing these scopes or any scopes, you are doing so on the same power settings for a fair assessment.
Sightron's Customer Service is absolutely fantastic.
As for the parallax, it is precise, but I like that, I want that, your mileage may vary.
Overall, I've owned three SIII's and don't see me going elsewhere unless I step up a grand or more. I definitely don't need FFP but if I did I would go with a new Bushnell Tactical 6-24 with the Gap reticle.
