    I know I am going to get one of those new Viper PST when they become available. I am thinking of the 4-16x50 FFP. I was just wondering if this scope will be go for 1000 yd. targets. I was looking at the 6-24x50 FFP but it has 10 MOA less in elevation and windage than the 4-16x50.

    I have read in other forums and books that 4-16 will work for 1000 yds. but I just want to hear some more responses from other shooters.

    Oh, BTW the 6-24 is over 1.5 inches longer than the 4-16. Which is another factor that I am considering but can overlook.

    Get a 20MOA mount. The 4-16x50 should work fine for 1000 yds. I'm planning on using Burris XTR low rings on my Savage 10PC with the 20MOA mount.

    Thank you for the replys. Sounds like it going to be the 4-16x50 for sure. I was already going to put a 20 MOA rail on to gain alittle more elevation for the longer yardage. I am really looking forward to get my hands on one of those PST's.
