Looking for tactical style scope with specs that so far, seem very difficult to meet.  Any suggestions are very welcome.  I see only two options so far.  A Vortex PST6241SA and Sightron III SS624X50LRMOA.  The Vortex has the illuminated reticle which I don't need, but is cheaper.  I prefer the reticle on the Vortex and it is cheaper, but not sure how the glass compares.  Any others?

I never liked Sightron I learned to like Vortex.

It was suggested to me to give Sightron another shot, I did and here are my findings...

I have compared exactly the scopes you listed and found Sightron to be a better build with far superior glass.
