Damn nice Mudrunner!! I was going to go with TPS hardware as well. Does your 5R like 168 or 175 bullets?

I still have Nightforce and Sightrons though. IMO the SIII is right on par with the Nightforce, and you can get a 6-24x50 for about 7-750 if you look around, they have over 100 minutes of adjustments on both turrets and are crystal clear, nice positive clicks, side focus is very sensative but easy to find the sweet spot. I've never owned a Huskmaw but I've heard good things about them and the Viper PST is another good choice.
The pst and the siii were my first two choice. Is the glass on the siii that good? How does it compare to the pst in clarity?

Not hardly a noticable difference between the PST and the SIII, the SIII may have a very slight edge over the PST but not much.

Thanks man! It loves the Nosler Custom Competition 168's. i have some Nosler Custom Comp 175's too, but have not loaded any. My buddy's Rem 700 SPS 300 Win Mag loves the 175's.

The base is a TPS 20MOA HD steel base, and the rings are TPS HD Aluminum Mediums. I have ran out of top adjustment, so I have to shoot my setup at 100 yards 4 MilDots low just to be able to hit at 100 yards, but I should be dead-on center dot at 575 yards. I built it to be a 1000 yard setup, which it should be. I haven't had a chance to stretch it any further than 100 right now. Soon I should be visiting a 1000 yard range.

Any other info, or handliad data feel free to ask!
