It's a fine scope for sure. Now we'll be waiting for the field test report on that elk.

    The weather isn't cooperating very well for the elk, but with three deer tags in hand I will be heading to Sundance, Wy on Fri to see about some good tests for the new scope, hopefully at some extended ranges.

    I assume it is the target dot model? Or is it duplex? I am hoping 8-32x56 S3s come out soon with a new rectical. What do you think of the target dot if that is what you got?

    Sightron informed me via email that the 8-32x50 SIII will be getting two new reticles. An 1/8" target dot and a mil dot reticle here shortly. No plans for the 6-24x50.

    My scope is the target dot and so far so good. I will let you know what I really think after drawing some blood this weekend.

    I got a chance to put the scope through the paces hunting some whitetails this past weekend. I am very happy with the scope. I didn't get the chance to shoot over 300 yards, but 3 shots and 3 dead deer and great scope performance. I used the scope as a spotting scope to judge a lot of bucks and I was very happy. Light gathering was also very good and almost identical if not a little better than my Leupold gold ring 10x42 binos.
