Re: PST vs. VX-III vs. SIII

I have both. PST-6-24-50 FFP-MOA. Just got it after one year what. Love everything about it. Zero stop. Know cover to take off to dial up or for wind. Sightron 111 great glass but know zero stop. You have to take off the caps to dial up or for windage. If you can find a PST 6x24-50 i would get one. Life time warrenty.

Re: PST vs. VX-III vs. SIII

I have a Sightron SIII in the 6-24x50 LRMD like you mentioned, tracks perfect, I have shot it side by side with my buddies Nightforce 5.5-20, honestly I liked the view through mine better. Zero stops are overrated and over priced in my opinion. I have heard some good and bad reviews of the new PST, I have never heard a bad review for a Sightron in the SIII series.

These three scopes seem to be in roughly the same category and price range. I have read a fair amount on the Vortex and the Leupold. However, there is not much that I can find about the Sightron. Which would you choose and Why. I have a budget of $800.00 tops out at $950.00. Is there anything else that I should consider. The rifle is a Sendero SF-II 300 RUM. I have a EBR 20 MOA rail and 30mm Rings. This is a long range rig and and will be used north of 1K target, but up to 1k hunting. I appreciate any advice that you may be willing to give.
Zeiss Conquest.

Check the classifieds here and keep an eye on Ebay.

Zeiss and Leupold are about all I will put on my rifles. I'll let others experiment with their dollars on the newest entries into the optics market.

For what we pay for top quality optics knowing the company behind them will be here five, ten, or thirty years from now to honor their lifetime warranty matters a great deal to me.

If I could afford USO or NF I'd go with them but I can't.
