Hello,
I been reading lots of posts, view lots of video's and have got my top5 choices here.
Basically looking for an all-around use scope on a 30-06.

If there are any other recommendations comparable to theses scopes, I will look into those also, I may have already but I want to get the right scope for me the first time around and have for quite some time.

in order of price.

For a general purpose scope, SWFA SS 3-9x42 is easily one of my favourites and would b emy recommendation out of the scopes you mentioned above.

If you lean a little more toward the precision shooting side, you should also look at their new 3-15x42:


Which exact rifle is it?

Liking several of the desired scopes.  It's a hard decision. Because I think all of them would serve you pretty well.

 
But I would agree with Ilya, the 3-15 would be my ultimate choice.
 
I'm not saying that because it's SWFA's exclusive product line. I have a PST and evaluated several of the others that you are wanting opinions on.
 
The SS has more interanl travel and you will not need any special canted bases in order to shoot long range.
 
Also love the Redfield idea and using the stem to maniplulate the power selector ring to transistion through the magnification range quickly. It's a great product.
