I have been trying to decide between the Viper HS-T 4-16x44 or 6-24x50. It will be going on my Rem. 700 270 wsm. I don't have any place close to compare the two. My main concern is I occaionally have shot opportunities under 50 yrds but shots are also common out to 600 yrds (my comfort range for now). So the 4 power would be nice as well as the 24 power for long range. Plus I have never looked through a 24 power scope at extended ranges. My question is would the 6-24 power be needed more for long range or will the 4-16 be enough out to 700-800 yrds on deer size game knowing I have the 4 power for up close and personal. Any and all opinions are welcome.
