Re: I found a Sightron S3 LRMD

How come nobody mentions the S3 10-50x60mm (LRTD, or LRFCH) models, with 30mm tube?

To me anyways, those #'s indicate significantly higher capabilites than the LRMD model. What gives? Is there something I am missing here?

I know that the Sightrons ARE high-dollar items (from MY perspective, at least). But I don't understand why such expensive products would go by such a "generic" sounding name.

It only has 50moa of travel which limits it's long range ability. I suspect that is the reason it doesn't get much long range hunting use.

That's too bad...

It really makes me wonder what it IS actually used for then. I have a hard time picturing a scope of that size being used for close-range hunting.

Re: I found a Sightron S3 LRMD

I've heard that it works great for sub 1k target work.

The higher magnification levels would need very solid rests (I'm thinking benchrest) to keep the picture steady. Mirage would also be tough to deal with.

You don't need high magnification for long range. Just enough to get the reticle on target.

Clear glass, tracking, and travel are just as important if not more.

Is the 8 x 32 too much of a good thing?
