Bought a Viper PST, same price range. It was basically a flip of a coin. for my shooting, which is mostly limited to 600 yards, the viper was a little better for me. The SIII has more MOA for adjustment, 100 vs 65. I can get away with the Viper out to 600 no problem. Either one is a very good scope, in a comparable price range...the Viper is a little less in second focal plane, cant remember the pruce for FFP

Thanx emn, your info, to me has been worth its weight in gold!! Hey armored, you said, you have the 8-32 have you had a chance to look through and compare the 6-24? As I do not have the ability to look through either of them, as I don't have a dealer near me. I am just making my decision based on my research, and its been extensive and lengthy!! One of the things I heard was you could barely see a diff between them at the top end??!! I am just curious if there is any truth to it? Thanx!!

I would go with the 6-24. It has 100 MOA of adjustment and 24x is plenty of power. Also, the MOA reticle is calibrated at 24x so you couldn't use the reticle on 32x without doing some calculations.

I have not had the chance to look through other Sightrons. Check out the LRMOA reticle the Sightron offers. That is part of what sold me...that and the hours of reviews I poured over before buying one. Get the 8-32X56...The moa is on at 24 and you can never go wrong for LR shooting having more power OR a 56mm ob. At the price there is no better LR scope that I am aware of out there

I was also interested in the Viper PST so I bought one of them as well for my next project, its going on a Farrell 30 MOA base so I should get most of the 65 MOA out of that scope, still waiting for a few parts to finish up though so I probably will not get to play with it until next year, I will report back on the side by side comparison when it gets field tested.
