Ended up buying the Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x44 with MOA reticle for my Browning A-Bolt 270. My first impression is that this scope is very well built. Finish is very very nice. It looks very nice mounted on the a-bolt. Looked through it last evening at about 25 minutes after sunset and could see most anything I wanted to see. Very clear. The reticle is sharp and the illumination is nearly perfect. The center of the reticle was not visible at 25 minutes after sunset, but setting the illumination on setting 1 was perfect. Could've ranged or shot anything on that setting. Mounted the scope in 30mm game reaper. Medium height was perfect for the a-bolt. Eye relief is nice. There is absolutely nothing about the scope I can complain about as of yet. I will go to the range in a few days and give the results afterwards. For $599, I feel like I got a serious deal. This seems like it should be at least a $1000 scope. If you look at my previous thread about looking for a $500 scope, you will see that I looked at a lot of options before pulling the trigger.
