Have you noticed any issues with low contrast on the SIII? The ones I've looked through seemed susceptible to glare when facing the sun. For that reason, I've considered it a better target scope than a hunting scope.
I'm curious, why do you like the SIII better than the VX-3?
Yes with the .125 click on the BR it takes to many rotations to dial yardage and is a pain when coming back down from 1000+ With the NXS even with the .125 you get 10MOA per revolution which is much nicer. that was all about that.
Power for power on say 20 or 25 I have found the SIII just as nice as the VX-3 I just really love the ability for the extra power they offer too. I have not had any glare issues to speak off worse than any scope. Honestly I have had 7-8 sightrons over the years and some were a little clearer than others but all tracked perfect and served me well. I have had 3 VX-3's in that same time frame. 1 I had to send back for particles in the glass, the other two had parallax that I just couldn't get adjusted out. They were all 8.5X25's. Now my friend has a Mark4 8.5x25 and it is awesome but not for the money it's so close to a 5.5X22NXS in price that I can't see staying with the Leupold in that case.
Only Leupold I would use are the Competition ones and that would only be if I got it on a good deal I just am more comfortable with the SIII's with my exsperiences for that price range. Not saying the Leupolds are bad I just think that they are a little over priced for what you are getting
