Dark Lord of Optics

Having thought about it a little, I decide to make "High End Tactical Scopes" a recurring them for an article series.
Here is the thread that links to parts 1 and 2:
I am now starting part 3 with the following contenders:
S&B PMII 4-16x50 (same scope as was used in Part II, for continuity)
Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50 (with new eyepiece)
Steiner 4-16x50 (this is one of the first few made)
Premier Light Tactical 3-15x50 (also one of the first few made)
At some point as I conduct this review, I expect to also get my hands onto March 3-24x42FFP, so I might pile that on as well.
I will once again use Jon's excellent Aadmounts for the test. I was sufficiently impressed with them after the the previous article that I am now a proud owner of three of them: 35mm (for Vortex Razor HD), 34mm (for the Steiner) and 30mm (for the Premier Light Tactical) versions.
The scopes will be tested on a DTA SRS in 338LM, and a couple of AR-15s one chambered for 223Rem and another for 264LBC.
The S&B will only be used for optical comparisons, since I have thoroughly checked its mechanical quality in an earlier article.
Let the games begin!
