trying to compare 3 scopes-- if you have one please tell me what you think of yours--if you have 2 or more please compare the differences..thanks in advance

purpose is for hunting from close brush to 600 yards with a lighter weight 7 rem mag and target practice out to 1000

SIG Whiskey5 3-15x44 Illuminated MOA milling hunter, has illuminated reticle, HD glass, zero stop, digital level indicator, weighs 25 ounces -

LEUPOLD VX5-HD 3-15x44 Impact 29 non-lighted reticle, HD glass, weighs 19 oz--

LEUPOLD VX6-HD 3-18x50, T-MOA illuminated reticle, HD glass, digital level indicator, weighs 20.4 oz--

I like the lighter weight of the leupy's but the extra 5-6 oz of the sig wouldnt hurt me too bad if its that much better

Like the extra magnification and objective diameter of the vx6, but is it worth the extra coin

I think the leupys come with the alumi flip caps

there is also the whiskey5 3-15x52 at 27 ounces, same as the 3-15x44 other than the larger objective-

I wouldn’t touch that Sig with a 10’ pole. I had one for one range session and then returned mine to optics planet after thinking about just throwing it away. Worst zero stop system I’ve ever fiddled with and the glass will leave you wishing for so much more.

Interesting, lrh mag did a review of one and he (fraser winskill) liked the glass, zero stop and tracking....that's one of the reasons I was considering one.

Yep, and I bought one based on some very positive feedback and on paper it fit what I wanted. But all I can do is speak from my experience, I wont touch one ever again.

I have 4 of the vx-6 non hd scopes 3x18x50 sf 30mm so far I’m really happy with them . I also bought them on sale for 849.00 I feel like I got a pretty nice bargain . I’ve read the hd version s have upgraded improvements . Good luck

I like the Leupold VX6's, haven't seen the VX5, also haven't seen any online for $760.
You are shopping at the wrong place theno_O, all of those prices come from the same place online, I can get the vx5hd duplex for a killer deal but I don't care for the reticle.
