Sightron's new 3.5-10x44 with the new MOA reticle looks really nice. I think they are SFP though which is a bummer.

The new Premier hunter looks promising. FFP, good power range for what I like and the Gen 2 reticle is pretty nice IMO. Not sure what the price will be though.

Vortex's new HS line could be cool but I am not sure what the real draw is compared to the PST. Their reticle options are much worse. They are still just as heavy as the PST line. It will be good to hear more info on them too, but when is the big question of the day.

I was really wanting more FFP options for long range use but we didn't get much. We are moving in the right direction though I think.

Get a 2.5-25X or 3-24X and just don't turn it up all the way.

We're definitely moving the right direction. More and more choices are popping up all the time. Now is a really good time to be scope shopping--compared with just 5 years ago the number of quality scopes out there has increased dramatically. There are more coming soon as well that might not be ready for SHOT but will be fairly soon.

I sure am anxious to see what the new SS scopes will be like. If they come out with a slightly more long range hunting oriented scope: FFP 4-12 or 4-16, and a better reticle, while maybe reducing the size of their turrets just a bit for hunting situations I don't know who is going to be able to beat them. They are such a great product now and competitively priced! Those additions would be awesome!

That is what I am hoping, that a few more options hit the street later this spring or summer.

Funny you should mention.... How does a 5-20X50 HD SS sound? FFP, Mil/Mil, very nice reticle, illumination, really good glass.... Mouth watering yet? That's the rumor anyway, I guess we'll all see fairly soon.
