Help me choose a scope

Ok while I am waiting to save up on an optic for my 7mm WSM, I have 3 scopes already on guns to choose from for load development and hunting this fall.

The scopes are as follows:

Leupold Silver VXIII 3.5 x 10 Duplex (standard turrets 1/4 MOA) on a 30.06

Cabelas Alaskan Guide 6.5 x 20 target dot (1/8" resettable turrets) on a 22-250

Sightron Big SkyII 4 x 12 Mildot (1/4" resettable turrets) on an AR

I am leaning towards the sightron right now. I am just waiting while I save up for a Sightron III.

Hunting wise I am not even sure I will draw a tag this year.

Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with Target Turrets and Mil-Dot reticle. I think you'll enjoy it.

Lol I bet. I have settled on getting the Sightron SIII LRMOA 6-24 when I can afford it. Until then I need something on there!
