Good call on the sightron. It may not have the bells and whistles (mainly the lighted reticle) but it has better glass and tracks awesome. I have two SIII's on my varmint rigs.

    call Kevin Cram at Montour County Rifles, a sponser on here. he sells Sightron scopes and will be the cheapest price you'll find.

    I have a PM inbound to Kevin regarding the LRMOA unit. I was just looking through the optics for sale forum and see a few NF's for sale. I was almost tempted to save a few hundred more and snag one of the 5.5-22-56 models on there. But i think i will stick with the Sightron first. My best scope to date was my Nikon monarch so i am very excited to step up to a new level of optical clarity, and mechanical performance!

    I have been waiting for the Vortex HS LR to hit the shelves but I just can't wait anymore. I have a Zeiss and I like it but have been very interested in the Vortex PST and HS line. The Sightron LRMOA looks exactly what I am looking for. I wish it had a zero stop but other than that it looks perfect. Let me know if you find a good deal because I am going to get one on the way within the next week.

    I ended up getting the mildot/mil adjustment version. SWFA.com had one on their sample list page for $699.00!!! I could not resist the savings. I like it so far but really havnt got to evaluate it much yet.
