I am retired and would like to enter into F Class shooting in addition to 100 yard general paper punching.  I purchased a Remington Mil Spec 5R in Cal. 308 and came upon a Badger Ordinance one piece +20 base and Badger Med rings.  After going through just about every post on this site including the scope evaulations, I am pretty much focused on a Sightron SIII 6-24 X 50.  This scope fits into my budget of $1,000 or less, with decent optics, tracking and customer service.    My shooting will be from 100 to 600 yards.  The 600 yard range is actually what is shot in my area for F Class, as well as some 200 and 300 yard shoots.  Is this Sigtron model enough scope for 600 yards, or do I need to consider the next model up?  Also, Sightron has a very limited reticle selection on this model, either a dot or mil dot.  Some members saying the dot is too large.  May I please have your input on what would be the way to go in the reticle selection?  Thank you all for your valuable input.

I really like the mil-dot reticle especially for windage and holdover adjustments. One thing I noticed though, is when I use one of the dots as an aiming point, instead of the crosshair, it's easier to hold on target. Perhaps it's just me but I find my eyes focus on the target and the dot just seems to hang better. I have an old Lue 12x with a crosshair dot and for pure target work it's great.

   DOC49:  My suggestion would be the simple dot reticle in either the 6-24 or 8-32 LR model.  I'd opt for the 8-32 for flexibility but it's hard to go wrong with either of these.
