 Hi all,
I am new here. It seems like a terrific site! I am just getting into the .50 BMG competition game. I have been reloading and shooting for 45+ years. I have coming a Ferret50 SuperComp with a 36" barrel and would like to know which scope you would chose other then a Nightforce? A Sightron, Burris XTR or a Tasco Super Sniper are my choices because of $$ and your choice is and why?  Thanks in advance!!

I say the Nightforce, it will have better glass than the others and for seeing targets at extended ranges good glass is extremely important.

i have both scopes the new sightron 8-32x56 and the burris xtr in 6-24x50 and If you want awesome glass then the sightron stacks up with nightforce and even has better color contrast and less edge to edge distortion than the nightforce plus it's also brighter than the nightforce. Now the burris is super nice for the money also but it dont have the glass that my new sightron has, but other than that it has a ton of adjustment for shooting long range but my sightron also has 77 moa to so that will get ya out there also. I do like both scopes really well but my hat goes off to the new sightron slll ss. Also my burris is 1inch and 1/2 in  and the sightron is 1/4 whatever works better for you.

I haven't done a side-by-side of Sightron and Nightforce but I am inclined to disagree with that summary.

At Camp Perry, walk the line and count the Nightforces and count the Sightrons.  if your statement were unilaterally true, many, many shooters - and winners - are as ill informed as me.

I'm sure Sightron makes a great scope, I hear many herald their praise, but a Yugo ain't faster than a Porsche, and Sightron ain't in the same league with Nightforce - nor should it be, given the price difference.
