just looking for some people that have used this scope and there thoughts on it. I have the 6-24 S3 and looking to add a 10-50 to the collection
Why go to the 10-50 instead of the 8-32?
I hate the fact that the moa reticle on the 8-32 is only accurate at 24x with that being the case i would rather just have the 6-24. On the 10-50 the reticle is accurate at 24 also with 2 MOA spacing but turn it up to 48x and you now have 1 moa spacing. Why not go up a mere 2x on the low end and pick up 18x on the high end. 4x zoom ratio vs. a 5x zoom ratio
You'll only have 50 MOA of adjustments on the 10-50 as opposed to 70 MOA on the 8-32. I have also read a ton of things that say the 10-50 was a 2 piece tube, but Sightron's website says that they're 1 piece tubes. I'm not sure if they used to be 2 pieces or if a lot of people just shared the wrong information.
The two piece tube and less elevation were why I was wondering why you wouldn't just go with the 8-32, but since the 10-50 is listed as a one piece tube the only potential downside I see is losing about 10 MOA of usable elevation adjustments.
