Posted this on another site but wanted your input also.

If all you had were .....
Sightron S1 3x9
Burris FFII 3-9 
Nikon Prostaff 3x9

Which would you choose for  a 270 Win??????

I've had good luck with the Prostaffs I've used, I'd probably go with it

i would probably go FF2 or S1, though i am pretty sure the pro-staff is a pretty good scope.

then again i would be shopping "the sample list"

and probably pick up a monark or buckmaster or vortex diamondback--LOL

lost of good scopes in the same price range if you shop around.

The Burris gets my vote.

I'd also put the Nikon Buck Master solidly in that group too. I really like the Buck Master's.

I have never used a Burris rifle scope but have had friends tell me they were good scopes. I do have on on my 44 mag revolver and I am really happy with it.  It's American made as well so that gets it another point.  I have owned Nikon optics and thought they were good quality. Sightron - no experience.

Having used the Burris and the Nikon, I would give the FFII a definite nod if they were my only options. However, I have found the Weaver 40/44 Aspherical and the Vortex Diamondbacks to be brighter, resolve better, and have higher contrast for roughly the same $$.
