I got two buddies who take a trip each year to Idaho to elk hunt. They are getting there rifles dialed in and asked me for scope suggestions. One has a 338RUM the other a 300 RUM.

I suggested vortex PST or even vipers to them. They were looking at Night forces and I just can't see it being worth that much to hunt for one week a year with.

They said 700 yards would be as far as they would want to shoot. Neither were interested in a fixed SS and after I got them knowing what parallax is they want an adjustable parallax aswell.

I figured the vortex scopes would be great but I would like to hear your opinions. They want something in the 20ish magnification.

Thanks Roto

I almost got a Vortex Viper PST but sent it back and got this and I am really glad I did this is an awesome scope actually the one I have has illumination.  I like the glass on this better than that on the Nightforce.  If they can afford NF and want to spend the money the U.S. Optics line offers some awesome choices for a tad more than a NF.  In any case they need to put in some range time to know their rig.

They might be interested with the coupon. They thought they had to spend 1500 to get a good scope for those guns I just don't think that's the case now a days.

Trying to stay below 1000 I forgot to mention that but that is an awesome scope for 50 over the budget.

Thank you for the suggestion.

One thing I should mention is we want to buy as cheap as possible but still be reliable. Dial in shots is preferred over holding over.

I have a PST 4-16X50 on my 300 RUM right now.  I am still evaluating it, but so far it seems to offer a lot of value.
