vortex viper and viper pst

I am thinking about getting a vortex for my 308. I have been trying to figure out what the main differences are between the viper and the pst. I am on a budget with this one so is the $400 more worth it? Ryan

    The rifle will be an all around rig. paper to 1000 and medium size game to probably 600. I was looking on their site and it looks like mostly the focal plane is the difference. I guess the main thing that I was wondering is are they any different optically

    The PST's come either way, SFP or FFP. I believe the PST line has some unique features like the reticle and the raised magnification ring with reverse facing multipliers.

    I just mounted a 4.5-18x50 SFP on my .338 Savage with Warne Maxima Rings..... a rasical departure for a Leupy person.....

    I think for the PST with the 50 objective Vortex only makes the:

    4-16x50 (FFP or SFP)
    or
    6-24x50 (FFP or SFP)

    Could be. It took Warne high rings to clear the rail......

    So far, very happy with the purchase.
