Re: PST vs. VX-III vs. SIII
Leupold is like the 30-06 in competition. It had it's glory days, and there's nothing wrong with em, but there are much better scopes to be had in the price range! I have two Sightron SIIIs, a 6-24 and a 8-32. Both are awesome, track perfectly, lots of internal elevation, good glass, very good value. I have also shot plenty of leupy's, and a buddy of mine is. Big fan, the mk4 is better competition for the sightron's, but they are significantly more expensive.
I have also read, but have not tried, a new PST, supposedly the glass is superb, cannot speak for reliability however, not saying they aren't reliable, just I don't know of/how reliable they are.
You will definitely not be disappointed with a sightron. However PSTs
may be worth looking into.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
