I've done some searching on this subject, but still haven't found a reference that works for me.

I've been eyeballing an Acog TA11J as a primary optic for my 6.8. I hunt with this rifle and it currently has a Accupoint 3-9 green mil-dot, but I am looking for something that will balance better for carrying around. While doing some searching last night the SWFA 1-4 and the Vortex Razor 1-4 caught my attention. So my question is how does the HD glass on these stand up to this ACOG, an Accupoint, or a Nightforce 2.5-10X32 at the same power setting?

I'm also looking for a new general purpose optic to use at the range (accuracy testing or general goofing around) and am considering the new Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10 TMR M5 (Mil discount). I know the SS 3-9 gets rave reviews, but does it have HD glass? If so how does the glass compare with the Nightforce 2.5-10X32 or Leupold Mark 4?

I understand the other differences (similarities) between these optics, but short of ordering and returning them (if I don't like them) I don't have the opportunity to look through them. So I'm hoping someone on here can provide a reference point for me.

Thanks everyone,

Paul

Has anyone compared the SS HD glass to the glass from Nightforce, Trijicon ACOG, etc?

TTT for this gentleman as I think that's a good question.

The new ss 1-4 is better glass than the accupoint, evidence by side by side testing and teh influx of  those being traded in on the SL for the SS 1-4.
 
The 3-9 is on par with the 10HD SS from all reviews, I haven't had a 10XHD to compare it to though.

Thanks.

I should have a chance to compare my Mark 4 and NSX to the 10X HD this coming weekend. I'm interested to see what the comparison holds...
