Re: 338 snipetac

Another option is the vortex razor, great warranty, 125 moa of adjustment, and all the of the good features.

I have one on my snipetac and edge. Very happy with them. Plus the price is quite a bit less then some of the scopes listed.

I have shot a razor and agree it is a great scope. But does it now come in MOA? Or is it Mils only?

To the OP, I would suggest you take a long look at the new Nightforce ATACR for that Snipetac. It has 120 moa of elevation and what I will be using on my new LRKM in 338 Terminator to get to 3K.

The SIII that I put on for my buddy is the 6-24x50 and it has 100MOA total, with a 20 MOA rail he easily gets to 2000 yards with the turret.
My opinion is, the glass is slightly better than vortex, turrets have good feel, reticle is good, scope is rugged but maybe not quite as rugged as the vortex, easier eye box than the vortex and it's trim and clean. The negative for me and it's the only two reasons I've gone with the vortex is I've become addicted to having a zero stop which the SIII does not have and I really find it helpful to have the windage turret count up in both directions and the SIII just counts one, if the SIII had a zero stop that would be enough for me to jump all over them!!!

It comes either moa and mrad. The new moa versions have 25 moa turrets (huge +).

Vortex Optics - Razor HD 5-20x50 (MOA) EBR-1 <br />25 MOA <br />Turrets

I shoot the mrad version, but that is just personal preference.

Thanks for the link and updated info. They are great scopes. I like the 25 moa turret but prefer 20 as I feel it is easier to keep track of when going past 1 turn. But I see it has .2 moa thick subtensions, too thick for my taste for ELR. The ones I have looked through sure had good glass though.
