sightron 6-24 or 8-32??

I am currently getting started in long range shooting. I will be using a savage 11/111 bth .308. I think I would like to start out with a sightron. My question is-is there really that much difference from the top end of the 32 opposed to the 24 to justify the extra cost of the 32? I have read that there is not!! Any input at all would be appreciated!!

    If your looking at the SIII I would go with the 6-24 with either a MOA or duplex reticle depending on your preference. When I was looking at these the 8-32 was not offered with the exposed target turrets, which on that scope are very nice. Plus the 6-24 has 101.75 MOA of adjustment on my scope and I thought the 8-32 was less. I have not been out shooting at targets, steel, or anything where i wished i had more than the 24x power of that scope.

    I think that for a hunting rifle, the 6-24 would be better. I have a different 6-24 and it works great for my needs.

    Thanx for the input guys! I guess I neglected to say that I will be primarily shooting at targets, steel, paper, ect.. also I would love to have the moa if I need it, as I am new to the sport I would like to try and put it out there as far as me and my equipment is capable of doing!! I plan to upgrade as I improve! So being a starter do you guys think the SIII is the right choice?

    the SIII is a great choice. I went another direction with my choice, but the SIII was a very very close second. I have no doubt you will like the SIII a lot

    I have the S-III 8-32X56 LRMOA on my 300RUM and love having the higher power to read mirage down range if needed.
