When looking at the 2009 scope ratings there is alot of scopes bunched up in the 5th group from bottom and in this group is the Sightron S1. I'm thinking of giving this scope a try,or would I be better of with a VXII or a Burris fullfield. I wish I could afford a Monarch or a German brand but I have a hard time forking out 500+ dollars for a scope.

if be hard you mean budget wise its hard to do i understand. if you mean you cant see a reason to spend that much, i would recommend you look at some of those scopes, in a lot of cases the $400 scopes trash anything in the $250 and under class.

The full field II is a great buy, It's proven durable and has decent optics. I have a S1 on a rimfire, so I don't know how durable it is, but we know the FFII will hold up to most center fire rifles, I think I'd go that route.

I'm starting to think your best value for the dollar is the Viper line from Vortex. I have an S1 in a 3-9 mil dot that is quite functional but its no where near the scope that a Viper is or a Leupold VXII is. 
I usually go with the VX3 or FX3 if I go Leupold - better glass. Leupold  builds a lot of different scope models so sometimes they make something others dont. I dont seem to have good luck with Burris but the FFII is a very popular scope and quite a bargain right now,  still I would rather have the Vortex Viper that a FFII.   I know its hard to compare without looking through them.
