I would like to make 2.5" per click adjustments at 1000 yards that the 1/4 mos clicks would give.
Can you shoot that 2.5" at 1000 yards if not is really of no concern

I have both scopes and the PST is a lot more scope. I don't like how easy the turrets turn on the Viper as compared to the PST. I have never had my elevation or windage move on me accidentally. I also don't like how hard the magnification turns on the Viper (change power). If the extra money is not a problem I would go with the PST.
