I am in the process of building a 7WSM that will be my first rifle that I would like to start doing some LRH with (ok, starting out 500-600 yards....gotta take baby steps before going to the 1k mark lol). I was originally dead set on getting the 4.5-14x50 Conquest with either the Z800 or Z1000 reticle. Now I'm seeing the Viper PST with the 4-16x50 with a FFP reticle and now starting to second guess the conquest. I love my 2 conquests that i have already and so I want to know if the quality of glass of the vortex will live up to it. They are roughly the same price, so I want to know if I will be happy with the PST glass quality or should I stick with a proven winner in the Zeiss? I have a little bit of time before I have to send the scope to the smith so I trying to do some research first. I know the PST isn't out yet except some people might have played with them at the SHOT show. Does anyone have any other Vortex stuff (besides the HD)? How durable are they? How's the glass quality? This is my first custom so I want everything to be perfect or at least as close as I can within a budget lol Thanks for the help!
