Is it reasonable that all three of these scopes are very comparable in optical quality and repeatability ?

For the same money you could get a Zeiss Conquest

I'd have to give the Sightron Big Sky a slight edge optically. However, all that you mentioned are good, usable scope brands.

Have all 3.. Sightron Big Sky is a step above the others which is why I have 3 of those and only 1 each of the others.
We measure it with a micrometer, mark it with a crayon, and cut it with a chainsaw.

Look at the Big Sky models on close out. If one of those fits the bill then that is a great buy...

With the closeouts right now I think the Big sky would be tough to beat

I would have to vote for the Sightron ahead with the Exac Tract or the elevation and windage very repeatable and very sturdy and the optical quality is not lacking.
 
They to me have a great 3D quality that give me a depth that I do not get with other scopes.
No one

I think that's a good way to put it....I've always said they are one of the easiest scopes to get behind and look through. There is something you get looking through a Big/Sky that ather scopes in that price range just don't have.
