The Tangent Theta is at the top of my list.
If I decide to save a couple bucks, how does the March FX 4.5-28 compare to the March F 3-24? The 4.5x still has a nice FOV with the wide angle eye piece.
I think the FX 4.5-28x52 is a bit nicer to my eyes over the 3-24x52 (which I owned for a while). But, I sold my 3-24x52 for another TT315M. Absolutely no regrets in that upgrade.

Iā€™m looking for advice on optics for a new rifle build thatā€™s coming together. The build is a 30 Sherman Mag built on a Defiance Anti X. Looking to shoot it out over 1000 yards.

Scopes Iā€™ve been interested in are: March 3-24x52, Tangent Theta 3-15x50 LRH, SB Exos 3-21x50, Leica Magnus i 2.4-16x56.
Any other suggestions? Not partial to FFP or SFP. Being that itā€™s a hunting rifle, Iā€™d like to have low zoom for close situations.
What are the opinions on the scopes mentioned? Will there be mounting issues/ limitations with the compact scopes on the Long action with integral scope mounts?
Thanks

The Tangent Theta TT315M is a great hunting/crossover optic. They are mechanically solid, weight isn't crazy, turrets are the best in the business, field of view & depth of field are great, eyebox is pretty good, the 'glass' is great, etc. The Gen 2 Mildot isn't exciting, but it is a good hunting reticle and pairs well with the 3-15 magnification range IMO. I was shooting mine out at 1,000 yards yesterday - no issues.

All that said, I think the Zero Compromise 4-20 is a better overall package. The two big downsides are weight, and mounting limitations.

I have a Premier Optics which is now Tangent Theta. The most, yet best, money I've ever spent on an optic. I purchased from a friend who wanted the money to replace it with a S&B. A few weeks after he got his S&B he asked if I'd like to sell the Premier back to him....He loved the S&B, but felt the Premier was just bit better in all respects.
I certainly enjoy it and wouldn't trade it unless destitute or homeless!
