I was looking around to see what would be the lightest weigh FFP tactical scope that can be used at mid-long range (let's say the effective range of 6.5 Grendel).
So far it looks like the lightest available options are SWFA SS 3-9x42, IOR 2.5-10x42 and Leupold LR/T 3.5-10x40 which all clock in right around 19 ounces.
Vortex has the new Viper PST 2.5-10x32FFP coming out which might become the lightest yet.
Basically, what I am looking for is to assemble a line-up of scopes for a follow-up to my Mid-Range Tactical article:
Naturally, I have a preference for newer designs, so the Vortex looks very interesting to me.
Generally, tactically oriented FFP scopes tend to be rather substantial, so I am curious about exploring the lighter side of things in this case.
