Thank-you billburl2; yes there is a group here in Yakima that sponsors a few matches a year. I will be trying to get in their next match I believe around the 10th of June. Weekends seem to be a tough swing for me in the summer months. Work in Issaquah during the week and now paving season is here, most likely Saturdys as well. Trying to only bite off as much as I can chew at any one given time. Thanks!

I have shot a few of the PRS matches and a few PRS style matches.  Here are my observations from my experience.  I have never shot a match above 15x or so.  I have several March scopes in the 3-24 varieties, as well as a SS 5-20, SS 3-15, Kahles 3-12, Z6 2.5-15 (not a match scope unless you are into holdover).  If you are in a match that you have to spot your misses, I have found that lower power is better.  I personally would find the best scope that tops out around 15x and run with it.

Last match I shot with the Kahles on a 22-250.  Shot the match at 12x and never really wanted more even at 1000 yards.  Again, just my opinion.  

I myself would like to sell off both march scopes and get one Premeir 3-15 and a Kahles 6-24

I wouldn't get the Kahles 6-24, but agree on all else.

I've used that scope and I have to disagree with ILya…

You'll LOVE it...

PRS production division puts a hard cap on the MSRP price of a scope. Key word being MSRP as based on the manufacturer website. The gen 2 Razor has an MSRP of $3500. T5xi at $2300. Etc. How much you can actually buy the scope for has no bearing for the competition rules. Really the only scope listed that actually qualifies is the SWFA 5-20.
