Re: Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP MRAD - through the scope
I have had an older sightron, just plain jane duplex reticule. The glass was phenominal for the money I paid, not quite in there with my Mark 4 Leupold, but close.
I also have a Viper PST 2.5-10*44 SFP on a .243win (coyote rifle). Unfortunatley I sold the Sightron before I bought the PST so I cant do a side by side comparison. Going by memory i think the Sightron had better glass, but just. That being said, I still have the PST and love it, and the Sightron is gone. I would buy the PST every time. Ive shot my .243 to 900 yards with that scope and help well under MOA (not everytime, but thats my limitations with 6mm pills).
I love how well thought out the scope is. It is SFP, but you can use the reticule on any setting easily because the selector ring has "positive stops" at 4 magnifacations, and a corrisponding number to muliply your reticule by. So with the scope on 10 each substension is 2 MOA, on 2.5 power the substensions are 8MOA. Not as good as FFP but the next best thing.
