So Im having a new rifle built and Ive made up my mind I want to try a Vortex Scope. Ive been looking at the Vortex Viper PST 6.5-25x50 SFP, but see the new Viper HS 6.5-24 is already out at Optics Planet. Im wondering which would be a better shooting/hunting scope for shots out to 1000 yds. I dont want to spend $1000 for a scope. Ive read extremely good things about the Vortex PST but I just dont know if it will be as good of a hunting scope as the HS, I like the Zero Stop feature of the pst, Ive never used an illuminated reticle for hunting so I dont know much about that. Most of my scope experiences have been Leupold and Nikon, Ive heard people say anything equivalent to the PST in the leupold line would be the MarkIV series and Im not spending that kinda money for a leupold. Any and all help is welcome.
