Vortex viper pst ffp 6x24

Thinking about a vortex ffp 6x24,scope to put on my long range rifle.When i first sight my rifles in i shoot at a plastic tack that i push in cardboard ,this distance is at 100 yard to see what kind of group i can get with my berger bullets. . I read that these cross hairs get larger with more magnification,do u guys know if i could even see the tack at 100 yards or would my crosshairs cover it completely?.At 24 power of course. Called vortex and the guy said he thought the crosshairs would cover 1/tenth of an inch ,but he wasn't for sure ,well when he wasn't for sure ,I though mabey i need to do some more reasearch on this. Do any of you know my if they would cover the tack competely? THANKS A BUNCH TIMMY>

Re: Vortex viper pst ffp 6x24

since its a FFP scope the reticle will subtend the same through out the power range. all you need to know is how much the thin crosshairs subtend, there should be specs on that. for instance leupold sent me a sheet on the varmint hunter reticle, the subtension on it is .13moa so it would cover .13x.13 at 100 yards.

What I want to know is what do you aim at after you shoot your first shot and the push pin disappears?

joseph

PS: Yes you will be able to hold on that push pin at 100 yds. at 24x and all the way down to 6x.

The reticle in this scope is 0.144" thick at 100 yds, so at an intersection it will cover a round target up to 0.2" diameter.

So how big is the head of the tack?

The tack is about .25" I guess I've always been able to hold on it and shoot it with my fine crosshair scopes

.2" is smaller than a .224 bullet hole which is smaller than your .25" tack.

Is that fine enough for you Timmy?
