    Finally received my viper PST 4-16 FFP for my 300. wsm. i just got to sight her in, set up the zero stops, create a drop chart and get shooting out too 600 yards! This year im going on my first elk hunt. Living in Ontario i normally hunt moose, black bear and whitetail with the odd caribou hunt every few years but this year got a hell of a deal and doing a horse back Elk hunt in Montana! can not wait, i will be using a 300. wsm firing 180 grain nosler accubond.

    That's looking good Matt! I finally got my hands on a PST the other day and Oh my, I liked it!! My dad ordered the same PST you have there for his 6.5 Sherman, I can't wait to give it try :D
    Hey, if you guys run into a hard time with the elk get a hold of me cause I'm only an hour and a half away and might be able to give you a hand if hard luck hits!!!
