I will soon be buying a Remington 700 PSS in .308 and am looking for some scope advise.  This rifle/scope combo will be primarily a paper puncher shooting 100-300 yds. with the occaisional trip to the 600-1000 yds. range and may be used for some hunting applications as well.  I've been looking at scopes and reading reviews for a while and would like some opinions from those with knowledge.  I've narrowed my choices down to:

1.  Bushnell Elite Tactical 4.5-30x50 mil-dot model# ET4305
2.  Bushnell Elite Tactical 6-24.50 mil-dot model# ET6245
3.  Sightron SIII SS 6-24x50 LR MD

All 3 scopes are in roughly the same price range $700-$800, all have the 30 mm tube and 1/4 in. click adjustments with plenty of W/E adjustment.  I've read good things about all 3 but I like the slightly shorter length of the Bushnell Elite Tactical scopes.  Opinions please?  Thanks.

SIGHTRON,

or

I am thinking this is the only way to go.

Now you have to decide MIL/MIL or MOA/MOA???

I would  choose the Sightron... but save a bit more for the mil-adjusted turrets... Life i good when the reticle and knobs match. Or you spend a bit more and get the new SS 5-20 FFP. Group buy price at $1000 right now...

The glass on the Weaver Tactical series is also very nice in the $650-$750 range.  However, the new SS 5-20x50 $1000 group buy is the way to go if you have the cash.

I know Sightron makes a high quality product, how does the Bushnell Elite Tactical lineup of scopes compare to Sightron for quality purposes?  Will the Bushnell Elite Tactical scope be a reliable quality product for years to come?  Thanks.
