Default Optic for Precision rifle

Recently Iíve been getting more into precision rifle shooting. I took a class with maxordinate that I really enjoyed and I have decided I want to learn and shoot more long range. Eventually my goal is to go to prs style matches but Iím not there yet. Anyway, Iíve somehow convinced my self I want to upgrade my optic to a vortex razor gen 2. I currently have a vortex viper pst gen 2 and honestly there isnít anything wrong with it. Has anyone used both? And if so can you help me decide if itís a good idea to upgrade or am I just spending money for no reason? Thank you for the help.

I have the Razor II and the PST I, and I really like the Razor II despite the weight. Before Tyler at MOA got hooked up with S&B, both he and Rei were using Razor II's. The HD lens elements makes it more likely for you to spot your own trace for quick corrections before getting a spotter call, when weather cooperates. For PRS shooting where you need to transition between shooting positions, the extra weight can be a concern. For this reason, you may want to consider a Vortex AMG or one of the Nightforce offerings.

I have shot with AMGs, Gen 2 Razors and PST Gen 2s each out past 1100 yards. The AMG and Razors are the better scopes but, the Gen 2 PST will easily do the job and did not hold me back from impacting targets. I would suggest keeping what you have and spending your money on another class or two to improve your skill sets if PRS is your goal.

Good advise, at the MOA class I hit targets out to 1530 yards and didn't feel the scope held me back at all.
