I tried a Vortex PST 6×24 on my Boss for EBR this last year. Took it off my AR-10. It’s a great scope and I believe Vortex makes a great product. That said, the min parallax is 50 yards. That’s just not close enough for an air gun. Vortex makes a Crossfire 6×24 that will parallax to 10 yards. After trying other scopes I went with the Hawke 8x32x56. Optics are as clear as the Vortex and other scopes I have costing 3 times as much. Parallax is 10 yard. The 32 power model is for all purposes the same cost and weight as the 24 and 16 power, so why not. Now, if Hawke would only put the H59 reticle with mill marks above center for hole under they would have the ABSOLUTE PERFECT scope.
