I took a long range shooting class in June. I took an LR-308 and a varmint scope. I didn't know everyone else would show up with a gun made for long-distance shooting. The instructor recommended I get a Vortex Viper Gen II PST 6-24x scope. I made a mistake and bought the first generation. I followed up and bought the right scope. Now I have three choices: send the first scope back, sell it to my buddy for what the seller is willing to pay me for a restock, or keep it and put it on a .204 Ruger bolt gun. I have dreams of shooting prairie dogs with the .204, but I don't know if I really want 24x for this gun. Seems like it might be too much. I don't plan to use the LR-308 with the Gen II. I picked up a Ruger Precision Rifle. Sorry about the extra 5 in the thread title. Can't get rid of it.
