I have a Sightron SIII Tactical 6-24 and it's a great scope. Clear and it tracks dead on.
Anyone have a SIII Tactical 8-32?
How does it compare?
I'm guessing it's the same quality glass?
Does any scope fog show up in the 8-32 scope at higher magnification compared to the 6-24?
Thanks

It does just as the 20-24 on the 6-24 at about 28-32 maybe a little sooner but it is very enjoyable yet and it does not disappoint, just realize that it is the same beast or ghost in the closet that you get when you get that high in mag range.

The one thing you will really enjoy is the brightness due to the 56 objective it is very very nice.

The Clarity and Resolution are their all the way up to the ghost coming into picture and then you just keep your eyes centered.

I really think you will enjoy the brighter view.

338, have you used the Sightron SIII's on any heavy recoiling guns?
If so, how'd they hold up?
Thanks

300gr with 100grs of powder

420gr with 125grs of powder

Recoiling enough for me braked or un-braked.

They do just fine on Auto Loaders too...

I believe I had the SIII 10-50 on a 800gr with 225grs of powder for a few hundred rounds...
