Re: Sightron vs. Nightforce vs. Leupold
Something else to consider would be to send your Sightron scope into either T.K. Lee or Bill Ackerman and you could have dots or stadia wires put wherever you wanted. Bill Ackerman is who installs the reticles for Sightron on their 8-32x56 scopes, I know because Sightron gave me his phone number and I gave him a call. Unlike T.K. Lee who will put dots or stadia wires at whatever yardages you want for the load your shooting, Bill Ackerman is set up to put them at MOA. Just something to think about.
Personally, I think its the best of both worlds. The scope on my 300RUM has dots to 800yds, plus M1 turrets on it also. If time is short, I use the dots. If I have plenty of time, need to dial for windage, or its longer than 800yds, then I dial up for the shot. Since I won't have time to send in my new Sightron 6-24x50 before hunting season this year, I'll twist turrets then after hunting season I'll send it in to T.K.Lee to have dots installed for the load I'm shooting in my 338EDGE. Dots will be installed out to 800yds, anything past that I use the turrets. This works great for me as I'm usually hunting the same areas or at least altitudes.
