Im still a noob, so I am VERY cautious about shooting beyond my comfortable distance. Right now I am leaning towards the SIII, because most people that have them seem very pleased.

    Now the BIG QUESTION.....Who sells the Sightron SIII the cheapest????
    Anyone have a great source to share? If so, please PM me. Thanks
    Don't cut yourself short, what happens is you shoot a few hundred yards beyond what your hunting max is, for a 1000 yard rifle I shoot every week end out to 1400 yards, the 16 moa only with a zero stop is inadequate for anything IMO though if you bottom out the HD5 with a rail and left the zero stop of you'd be GTG as well.

    We've been getting the SIII from Shoot-long, you'll have bonus MOA with the SIII, really like them for shooting looooong!
