Vortex pst FFP or SFP

Ok so I'm going to be ordering a vortex pst 6x24 50mm in mil on mil and I am stuck on whether I should get FFP or SFP. I have never had a FFP so I guess I just wanna know if it's better and worth the extra $. Thanks

Re: Vortex pst FFP or SFP

Do some searching on here using the box at the upper right hand corner of this page. Study the differences and see what others are usig that will be shooting to the diatances you feel you will. I can not see any advantages to the FFP for my style of LR shooting. So I use and prefer SFP. I see no reason to pay more for something I will not use and don't care for.

Re: Vortex pst FFP or SFP

I love a ffp and it is all I will buy. I use reticle a lot for shots, and like it if I dont have time or varmit hunting. Can use holds at any power and sometimes a lower power is better for mirage or conditions. I have been right next to guys that missed w/ sfp not paying attention to power setting in a hunting set up.

FFP is not for me, crosshairs are just to thick and not precise enough. SFP for sure for accurate long range shooting.

Bet you never looked through a FFP PST. If you had I don't think you would come to your conclusion that the reticle is to thick & not precise enough.

Here is a 200 yd. 5 shot 3/8" group I shot with my 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope with the power set on 24x. If the reticle was to thick I would not be able to hold it on a 1/4" dot at 200 yds.

PS: Here is a 1,000 yd. target I shot with the same hunting rifle with the same PST FFP scope with the power set at 24x. The group sizes & scores are in the lower right corner. All 15 shots would have been in the boiler room of an antelope at 1,000 yds. -------------

Looked through one yesterday, Don't like it at all. Would have bought the scope if it wasn't for the FFP. Reticle changing size... No Thanks..
