Here is the official "How To"

It boils down to upload them on a picture hosting site like Photobucket, then copy the "img" code to your post here.

It's a great scope, super clear, tracks great and the clicks on the turrets are really positive.

Re: Built my first savage

Very sweet build trapper. How do you like the DBM system from stockade. I was kind of tempted to try it when I ordered my stock from him a couple months ago. Should have it by the end of April. I'd love to see some details on his DBM system if you ever get the chance. Maybe I should have gotten it just so I could review it for my savage site.

I've got the PST 6-24 and concur with your statements. Very clear and I love the adjustments. Seems like a great scope. I had to send mine in to have Vortex take a look at it though. Seemed like the left side of the reticle was being obscured at 6x no matter how you shifted around to look through it. Don't think it was just me because I wasn't the only one that noticed it. Got a call from Scott at Vortex today about it but missed the call. Those guys are awesome to work with if you have any issue or questions. With any luck I wasn't just seeing things but who knows. At least they were willing to pay for shipping both ways to check it out. They are very dedicated to their products.

PLEASE look at the following thread for the conclusion of the PST issue I was having. Vortex PST
