A 6mm Norma BR. shooting Berger 105 gr. VLDs with Varget. Tomorrow & Sunday we are going to try to finish our drop charts so I can get a new turret made for the PST.

I got some accurate numbers for my drop chart today. I sighted in at 200 yds. then shot at 300 with a 8" drop then shot at 400 yds with a 3 1/4" 5 shot group which dropped 21 1/2" from the 200 yd zero.

Now I am getting confident in me and my rifle.

Re: Vortex Vipers - latest info

I will give the interested sportsmen some strong advice. I would not cancel your orders for the new Vortex Viper PST scopes. For $900 or less you can't match the quality, functions and warranty. Not only have I not canceled my order, but have ordered the custom turret to match my drop chart in yards from Vortex to match my new Nikon Gold 1200 laser range finder.

PS: Hope to get my new 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope soon.

Has anyone got to look through one of the new 6x24s yet? I saw a review on the 4x16s that said the glass was pretty good. I'm sure it's the same glass I was just wondering about how the 6x24s handled the higher magnifications.

Vortex makes custom turrets for custom loads? I hadn't seen that... I had been looking at other companies to get custom turrets, but if Vortex does it, it makes sense to have them make them...

How much?
