Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LR MD

Its about $300 more than the Viper Vortex 6-20x50

Is it worth it?

And most important:

How to I talk my wife into letting me up my budget for this scope?

Wrap it up pretty (with a red bow) and let her unwrap it? Just a thought.

Face it you cant win with her anyway so you might as well do what you want she would be upset just as much with either scope.  The compromise could be a Viper PST.

So Ernie, How's your health doing?  Would you be interested in joining a Feb-march pheasant hunt in Perry County?  You do know you don't live that far away from Paul (Shooter07).  He lives in the Lebannon area.

Use her own excuse against her.  Tell her you got it on sale.

One step ahead of you.  That is exactly what I did!  And it looks like it worked  Big Smile

Now, the question is... Is this a very good scope for F-Class 600 - 1000 yard shooting?

Is this scope a big improvement over the Viper Vortex and Bushnell Elite 4200?

Tell her you love her and encourage her to buy herself something nice, after she does, go buy the scope.
