Which scope????

Im looking for a new scope for my new practice rifle which is a rem 700 5r milspec 308.. I have been looking at leupold vxiii, sightron siii, and vortex viper pst. I really like the mk4 with the tmr, but wondering if its worth the extra cash?

I think all three are great scopes. I have all but the sightronIII. For the money I do not think you can beat the viper pst. Just my two cents.

I hear the least neg about the sightron siii. I would think the vxiii would be great with a quick trip to the custom shop for new turrets but the pst has great features with ok reviews.. This rifle is just used for targets and will prob never be used for hunting. I do believe a sfp would be best for this, but any opinions will help.

NO. Get the PST it has everything you will want. The others have to have things added to them. I have a 6-24x50 PST FFP MOA / MOA. I have had zero issues and have only read a "so so" reviews from one person that supposedly tests scopes, but only looked through one indoors at Shot Show and was able to give scientific tests of the scopes he looked through. He has no credibility as far as I am concerned. IMHO

Re: Which scope????

Since your looking for opinions the Sightron SIII is a poor mans Nightforce, there 2moa reticle is almost identical to the Nightforce NP-R2 and glass quality compared to nightforce I give it a 9.5 out 10, superior to Leupold and Vortex, the only thing I like about the new leupolds is the available Horus crosshairs.

Is the ffp a good choice for long distance targets? I really like all the features of the scope im just worried about glass quality.
