Hello Fellas,

Between the Sightron SIII and Viper PST FFP I've decided to go with the Viper.  Then I looked at the NF PB 8-32x56 Precision Benchrest and it's only $300 more than the Viper.

Is it worth the money to get the NF?
It is mainly going to be used for precision shooting out to 1000 yards on 308 bolt.

I have a NF BR 8-32 and I like it. But are you aware it is a SFP and not a FFP like the PST? Also I rarely use it above 20x since mirage is an issue at higher magnifications. So getting a scope with 32x is for the most part wasted. I would not have purchased mine except I got it new for $800 a few years ago.

Since you are open to spending around $1300, have you looked at the SS 5-20 non illuminated? That would be an excellent choice that is a step above the PST in every respect.

on the SS what does mil quad reticle mean?
another thing, I'm not too comfortable with milrad reticles that's the reason I'm inclined towards PST.
How's the glass on the SS compared to PST?

Since you are new to this I would go with the milrad reticle. I think it would be easier for you to dial in correction.

Glass is definitely better on the SS.

I think this post would be beneficial for you.

I read the post, it basically shows how to use the milrad reticle to zero in. This concept can also be applied to moa reticle. But it doesn't explain as to why one should choose milrad reticle over moa.
