Re: vortex viper pst 6-24x50

If I were you I would call Vortex and I'm sure they will make it right for you before you drive 100 miles one way(?).

Here is a 1,000 yd. target I shot using my Vortex PST 6-24x50 mm FFP MOA scope. The three 5 shot groups were shot in 3 relays which took a few hours. The group sizes and scores are in the lower right corner. A perfect score for each group would have been 50 points. All 15 shots would have hit the boiler room of an antelope and the scope was on 24 power.

The target was shot with my 6mm Norma BR. hunting rifle.

This is a great scope

PS: If there was anything wrong with the clarity I never would have been able to shoot like I did.

joseph, your reviews of the PST were what first got me thinking about them. The PST was one of the best purchases I've made.


wicked08HD, I'll say it again, if you haven't already, give Vortex a call. I haven't had any issues, but I have called with questions and their CS is top shelf

In my 6-24x PST, the scope fog started showing up @ 16x.
Returned the scope to Vortex and they wouldn't fix my scope or give me a new scope to replace it.
So they gave me my money back.
Fair enough.

I talked with them and they said I could send it back for them to check it out, but it sounded like that's just the way these are. I'll probably sell it and try an ior or maybe a razor.

That's exactly what they told me.
