Hi everyone, I am in the process of purchasing a scope for a 223 rem, but not really sure about eye relief.  I am looking at the weaver grand slam 6-20X40, which has eye relief of 3-2.75 inches.  The Sightron 6-24X42 has eye relief of 3.6-3
 
What does this mean.  Will the weaver need to be mounted further back, or will I have to strain my neck more forward to get a good sight picture? 
 
Also, how would you compare these two scopes?  Note, this is not the Sightron Big Sky, just the SII. 
 
Thanks!

  I have both brands of those scopes but not in those configurations.  The Weaver is the optically better of the two and it's definitely better in low light.
 
  As far as the eye relief is concerned the Weaver would need to be mounted a bit further back than the SII for a proper view.  No big deal though.

How would either of these compare to the Vortex Viper 6.5-20X44.  It has side focus and a 30 mm tube, both of which are different from the Weaver. 
 
Thanks!

  I haven't hancled a Vortex scope so can't comment on it's optics compared to the other two. SORRY.
 
  A side focus and an adjustable objective serve the same function.  Adjust to eliminate or minimize parallax.  A 30 mm tube will give you more windage and elevation adjustment than a 1" tube.
