Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing clarity... I've mounted this optic to my Savage 10P-SR and have found perfection... I used a competitor's glass for a few months, and found that at 500+ yards, it got to be more than a task to focus on the target while keeping the reticle sharp. There's zero effort with my Vortex. From first putting bullet to paper at 25-yards, to preliminary zero at 100, the eye's are happy. Stretching the weapon's legs out to 500 and back to zero is simple with the Vortex Zero Stop setup. For the money, you're getting an excellent piece of glass and excellent customer support and lifetime warranty. What's more to add? I guarantee you'll never regret your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope even better value Being a Scout Sniper instructor I know the importance of quality and reliable gear. That is why I chose to take my Kimber rifle topped with a Vortex scope to Montana in the fall of 2016 for an Elk and Mule deer hunt. I was successful in taking a Mule deer from a very close range, 33yds to be exact. The test came for my Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 when I was faced with an elk at 1150yds. I dialed the dope on the scope and fired the shot, the elk didn't move. I had miss ranged the elk after getting my correction from the EBR-1 reticle I quickly took another shot and down went the elk. I know had I not had the Viper PST 6-24x50 I would not have made the shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three PST's and counting! I've got three precision rifles and that are all fantastic shooters thanks to Vortex. The most important aspect of any precision rifle is the optic my opinion. For optics I won't run anything by the Vortex Viper PST in 6-24x50. Fantastic clarity, great illumination, awesome zero reset function all backed by Vortex's bulletproof double lifetime warranty. My range consists of 680 yard, 880 yard and 1285 yard metal gongs. Vortex makes these distances achievable through the great product they build. I've yet to find a weak point in their optic and look forward to many years and many rounds to come. Will buy for each new rifle.
