    I have finally decided (i think) on a scope for my 7mm rem mag but am looking for opinions on power range. im going to order the Vortex Viper PST and am set on the based off cost and what i am looking for in a scope but cant decided between the 6-24x50 or the 4-16x50. i have an area where i can shoot up to 1500yds. any input would be appreciated.

    6-24x would be my choice between the two, extra magnification while still retaining the option for a setting as low as 6x. Good for short or long.

    I have a 4X16X50 PST on order. Cant wait to get it. If you are going to shoot that far I would get the 6X24X50 PST. You know the glass will be better then the Viper line scopes. I cant seem to find where in Japan the glass is maid. I hope it is real close to LYNXX or a sister CO. If it is it will be as good as it gets.
