I have a 6-24 PST on a 300 RUM. Was worried about a week ago when my gun started shooting all over the place, thought it was the scope. Turned out it needed a bedding job and all is well. Shot it out to 700 yards yesterday and it tracked perfect.

Same brand (Vortex Viper PST) and same rifle almost (Savage 11 LRH/.338).

No issues. I have mine in Warne Steel rings, lapped of course. Tracks flawlessly.

Re: Vortex Viper Pst on large caliber

I have the 5-15x44 with a 30mm tube Vortex Viper HS made for Midway on my 300 Ultra Mag. without a brake shooting max load 211 grain custom bullets 95 grains of Retumbo with "NO issues" at all after around 500 rounds and I will be leaving tomorrow for my Elk hunt in Montana with this setup! The scope is in Warne steel rings and the rifle weighs 71/2lbs. loaded ! I think that the Vortex line is a good line of scopes that will stand up to quite a bit of punishment at an affordable price and with their version of zero stop & grest glass what more could one ask for when compared to other scopes costing 3-6 times more?

Re: Vortex Viper Pst on large caliber

IMO. good rings are a must on a heavy recoiling rifle, why I went to Warne steel Maxima's, again just my opinion. They work very well in my application.
