I'm sure someone will have a better answer, but ... here goes. In addition to the reticles, here are my observations.

1) The plain Jane "Viper" comes in either 1" or 30mm tube.
2) The "HS" is a hunting series 30mm tube with capped turrets.
3) The "PST" comes in only 30mm tubes with exposed tactical turrets. The reticle is illuminated.

Supposedly, they are all the same glass, but I had a plain Jane and the edges blur at the higher magnifications so I exchanged it for the "HS". It still blurs at the edge, but not so much. That doesn't happen with the PST.

Fluke. Bushnell, from the Elite series on up, are pretty good scopes for the money.
