I'm torn between the Vortex Pst 6-24 ffp and 4-16 ffp......there is only a $50 difference between the two. Ill be shooting from 100-1000 yds. Is either glass better? Is 16 power long enough?  Hope you guys can help

At shorter ranges 6x is going to be alright for target shooting but not so good for hunting.

Thanks jono....it will be just for target shooting.  Do you know if there is a difference in the glass between the 4-16 and 6-24?

If they are both Vortex PST scopes, the glass should be the same.
If I was just going to use it just for target shooting, I'd go 6-24, but if I was going to use it for anything else like hunting, I'd go 4-16. JMHO

If it is just for target shooting, go for the 6-24x50.

As far as optics go, 6-24x50 is a better scope than the 4-16x50, though both are very respectable.
