    in basic numbers the LR version with 1/2 moa clicks, will move the POI about 2" and the scopes with 1/4 moa adjustments will move it about 1". this would be at 400 yards. i would disagree with the statement the HS model is better than the PST. i think they are basically the same scope, but the PST has much better reticles and illumination of said reticle.
