Finally decided on a scope for my 300wsm

So i have been torn on this subject and going back and forth for a few months now, mainly between the Ziess 6.5-24 conquest and Vortex PST 6-24. I wanted the best glass possible but the Ziess just didn't have the elevation travel I feel I needed. The PST is great but I didnt want to spend money on ill reticle and zero stop features that I feel I didn't need when that money could have been applied towards features I did want, like better glass!! So it hit me like an epiphany. Why have I not been looking at Sightron? I recalled hearing about their long range MOA model coming out, looked it up and sure enough, its on shelves and my mind is made up! Hope I made the right call.

Sightron Riflescopes / Binoculars / Sighting Scopes product pages. SIII Series - SIII SS 6-24X50 LRMOA

I've heard some very good things about the SIII, although I've never had my hands on one. I would also like to get my hands on one of the PST's to see if they also live up to the reputation they have been given.

Let us know how the SIII turns out, I would like to know some more about it.

Its just my practice rifle for long range steel. It was bought mainly to practice with and save barrel life on my 300rum with is my primary hunting /LR rifle.

Re: Finally decided on a scope for my 300wsm

Then the sightron might be your best bet. All the scopes all sight close to the same weight. The sightron has great class, good elevation and everything. I was in close to the same shoes as you but my rifle is mainly for game. I just purchased the Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50mm for shots up close and shots out too 600 yards!

I think the Sightron and Vortex will be your best bet because of the elevation cause the zeiss doesn't have as much but does carry some fantastic glass

How much elevation adjustment do you need? I have the Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 on both my long range rifles and I am very happy with them.I agree that they don't have as much adjustment as others.My rigs are setup through 1200 yards with 20 moa bases. Whe I compared the zeiss to others to me the Zeiss stood out optically and the tracking is excellent.
