how would you list the best tracking scopes out of the box by names/this is a lighting question isn't the larger the exit pupil the more light goes to your eye/

 IOR is the best I have ever used as regards to perfect tracking.

 and

 Exit pupil is objective lens diameter in millimeters divided by magnification. 

 (example- a 6x scope with a 42 mm. objective would have an exit pupil of 7.)

Larger exit pupil means more light to your eye but only to the point that your eye is capable of handling. Generally, the most the human eye will dilate to is 7mm in darkness but there are many factors that dictate that as well such as age, health, diet, eye color and sex (no not how often you get but it couldn't hurt I guess.......)

The new design SIII works the best for tracking.

You seem pretty sure of that. May I assume then that you've tested it against Nightforce, IOR, S&B, and all other scopes that perform well in that category? Just curious as to if it's really the best, or the best you've used?

Best I've had was Nightforce.  Have a new premier, will be testing it more.  USO has been dead-nutz too.


Not sure I understand, "best tracking", either it is exactly as it should be or it is off by some factor.  If 2 scopes are dead-on, which is best?

Nightforce is well known for their precise, accurate mechanicals. IOR makes some good stuff and some "so-so" stuff.

What exactly do you need?

The new model is super accurate and yes it was indeed better than the Nightforce.This again is the newly designed SIII.
