I can get s big sky III for about the same price
Are you looking for a long range scope? The 6-30x56 is a 30mm tube, the rest are 1". It is also 1/4 MOA adjustments. Turrets are good, the feel and accuracy of adjustment is much better than on the Vortex towers. I did not have it long enough to check for tracking.

4-20x50 has 1/8 MOA clicks. Nice feature IMO for small game hunters, not so for big game.

I went thru the same process and am buying Greybull.
Sightron reticles are way too busy for me.
Adding the turret to a Vortex was the same money as Greybull.
Greybull has Leupold warranty, good reticle, and dial turrets included.

I like the reticles , just wish the MOA reticle was a standard cross vs the floating dot. I prefer to use the hashes for holdovers vs dialing if I can.

I just pulled the trigger on the vortex viper PST. I hope I don't regret it.

Im pretty sold on the Sightron maybe we will have to get together and shoot them side by side. Im gong to go drop off all my pieces to Travis on sunday, cant wait to get it back. I was really on the fence about a 300 RUM or 7 mag. After I shoot this out I will probably go to 338 RUM with 225 cutting edge bullets or stay with the 7 mag. What are your build specs?
