Re: another Braked 300 rum ?

I was going to say the sightron has the best power range suited to the range of the 300. I would use that but I dont know to much about sightron and how tough they are either. I prefer around 18-20x for 1000 yard shooting. 14x will work if you have fine duplex or something like that though.

    I concur the IOR's are a very good value; mine have been perfectly reliable & repeatable. The optical clarity is at least as good as my Leupolds and one Nightforce.

    As you suspected, my 4-16X is the older first focal plane model. If this scope had a zero stop it would be just about perfect...

    I just bought a Sightron SII for a soon to be picked 300RUM. I called Sightron and was told that as long as I stay with an SII or III they will hold up fine, I even specified on a braked rifle. She also said no questions asked warranty, any problem send it back. Hope this helps.
