Sightron 3 6x24 vs 8x32 - ffp or second

Came across the forum yesterday in my search for scope options and you kept me reading for a few hours. Looking to purchase a new higher power scope to replace a weaver v16 on a 308 ltr. Looking for a bit more power an a more user reticle. Planned use is for silhouette / f class. Generally to 600yds but would like to get something I could use if I get a chance to go to 1000 in the future. With my budget thought the s3 lrmoa would be a good choice.

But having trouble deciding ffp or second as I have never used a ffp . I like the idea of the fixed values and I see the scope being used in the upper powers most of the time so a shrinking reticle does not seem like a penalty. Whats your real life use experience?

My other hangup is going 6-24 or 8-32. More power is better if I can really use it. My concern is will the 8-32 give me that usable extra power for the weight and bulk penalties?

Never having seen any either scope in person I need to rely on the impressions from those that have.

Thoughts? Curve balls?
