with the new S3 scopes the side-focus is directly across from the windage knob.  With older S3 scopes that varied depending on the model.  There were a couple of different version that I have seen.

The shorter and more rounded eyepiece is definitely new, however.

so looking for an optic,. for a rem 700 308, would you put a 6x24x50 sigtron or 2.5-10 Nikon tactical?

Two very different configurations that would work best for two very different uses.

If you are looking for long range/target gun, go with the 6-14x50 Sightron.  If this is a hunting rifle, go with the 2.5-10x Nikon.

This is an apples to oranges comparison.
