OK, I have a dilemna.

 

Do I buy an XOTIC now, or wait another 6+ months for a Super Sniper Variable?

 

I don't mind waiting (actually I do, but that's beside the point).  I can use my Zeiss 4.5-14x44 scope for now, but I want to get a mildot scope, at least 16x, FFP reticle, that will serve me for target shooting, tactical matches (if I ever get into those), and varmint hunting.

 

The XOTIC and the SS Variable seem to have what I am looking for.  The SS has higher mag (4.8-20x42), and is lighter and probably will be less expensive.

 

What does the XOTIC have that would justify my getting it vs. waiting for the SS variable?

IMO get the SS and spend the money you save on ammo.

I would wait for the SS variables as well. They should be a great buy!

Buy the  XOTIC now and sell it for more money than you paid for it later after the prices go up and get a SS variable (earliest would be late October and I would not hold my breath).
