    Has anyone compared the Sightron SIII Tactical 8-32 to the SIII 6-24?
    I have a 6-24, it's a great scope.
    Just wondering if the 8-32 has any clarity issues compard to the 6-24 because of the higher magnification?
    How about the fact that the 8-32 has 70 MOA of vertical adjustment vs. the 6-24's 100 MOA? Has that effected your long range shooting?
    Thanks

    I have an 8-32x56 SIII and I really like the scope. I originally set it up with a 20 moa base but I have a zero base on it's way. With the adjustments the scope has, I can get to about 1400 yards with a zero base, so the 20 moa base is really not needed for me. With the 20 moa base, I am only 9 moa off the very bottom with my elevation turret. Clarity of this scope is excellent. I wanted this scope to keep from having to carry a spotting scope and it works.
