I can also try to bust out the K-5 for some high res shots.

I can work on that, but I'm going to be wrapped up for the weekend and probably won't get to it until Monday or Tuesday.

Re: Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP MRAD - through the scope

I have had a Vortex 6-24x50mm PST MOA FFP scope with a Vortex Custom Turret and love it.

This is a 1,000 yd. target that I shot at 24x in competition for the first time. There are 3 five shot groups with the scores and group sizes in the lower right. All 15 shots would have hit in the boiler room of an antelope. It was shot with my 6mm Norma BR. hunting rifle. 50 points is a perfect score for each group.

Excellent stuff Joseph. It is amazing what can be done with a good 6m BR .
I have put a 243 barrel on my latest gun to try and take advatage of good 6mm bullets and less recoil than a big magnum for upto 500 varmint shooting .
I still need that Vortex scope though to seal the deal.
So far I have developed a load with a 3.5 to 10 Leupold with standard duplex reticule but the scope is restricting my range dramaticly .

When my PST Was sitting on my .243 win i could hit targets out to 500m using just the reticle. It works great.

It's funny, there seems to be as many guys saying that the PST glass is better than SIII, as those that say visa versa. They are obviously very, very close. But the PST takes the cake for me, simply because of the features.

Yes it makes it real hard to make a choice but I agree the features are very important.
