I just bought a Savage 110 FCP in 338 lapua.  I have been looking at the Sightron sIII in 10-50x60 and the swfa ss hd in 5-20x50.  I can get the Sightron for about $400 less than the swfa.  I havent been able to find much about the big sightron, but everyone seems to favor the swfa.  Can anyone give me advice on what i should look for.  My budget is around the $1000 mark.  If someone knows a better scope than either of these, please let me know.

Thanks
Ryan

I might loose some people with the following statement.

For the Price you cannot beat a Sightron SIII 6-24, 8-32 or 10-50.

Looking at quality and construction you cannot beat a SWFA SS 5-20, maybe, for the simplicity of it I might say the 10XHD due to less that could go wrong.

I have posted a review and now have had it for a few years and the 10-50 is not lacking in any department.  Because of the Larger Objective it is Brighter than the 5-20 and the 6-24 and the 8-32.

which reticle do you have and what turrets?  is yours illuminated?  competitor has the mildot reticle on sale for 899.

it seemed like a pretty good buy.

If it has exposed turrets yes, if not NO.

I would just spend the extra few $$$ and get the one SWFA sells.

See if they will price match they seem to even give you more $$$ if it is the same scope.

In this case Seems to good to be True.

I am guessing it is the older model with caps.

Mil-Dot is the only way to go with this scope.
