    I am looking at 3-4 different models for 100-600 yard deer hunting in Arizona and have narrowed it down to these..
    Sightron SIII 6-24x50 lrmd
    Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50 Bal Plex
    Leupold VX3 6.5-20x40

    Most reviewers really like them all, especially the Sightron EXCEPT one guy that pointed out that the field of view is smaller than most... Is this true? I cannot get my hands on one to test or look through.....

    I have been shooting the sightron for the past year i was looking at eather the sightron or the leupold.

    i got the sightron beacuse it seamed to me that you got a little more for less $$.

    sightron fov at 100 - 16.1 - 3.9

    leupold fov at 100 - 14.3 - 5.6

    burris fov at 100 - 27 - 7.5

    the burris has more because it has less maginifaction i think.:rolleyes:

    I havent nodest any problems with the fov when shooting.
