Could be true. I have only had experience with the SIII and there are even two models hanging around...an older model and newer model SIII.
I have had both, not knowing there was an older model until I got it and compared it to the newer model that I already had. The newer model has better glass and turrets and is a couple of hundred $$ increase over the old model. So, if you go with the SIII just make sure it's the newest model.
I got my newest model SIII from Larry D. Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for $715, I believe....Great guy and great service. I got it "sight unseen" as I couldn't find a local shop that carried them. I heard they were really good for the price so I called Larry and he convinced me to try one. By the way....Larry is a Leupold guy too.
There isn't a Leupold in that price range that compares to the SIII. I wouldn't have believed until I received the SIII and compared it to my VXIII's.......I'm not sure that even the Mark 4 is a better scope, and the Mark 4 is almost double the price.
BTW....the scope tracks great too. I have been up and down so many MOA's since I got it and it always goes back to zero without a hitch.
