Hi All. Haven't posted here in a long time. I'm looking at a few FFP scopes for my 308 rifle (Sako TRG-22) and was wondering which of the below 3 has the most forgiving eye box at all powers? That is, which one of these is best at not requiring my cheek to be in just that perfect position on the stock to have a full FOV through the scope? This is one of the things about my IOR 4-14x50 that has bugged me for years, along with the stiff power ring.

Intended use is primarily benchrest out to ~ 600 yards.

USO MR-10 1.8-10x37
Nightforce ATACR 4-16
Kahles 3-12x50

Thanks in advance, B

Of these three, Kahles is the easiest to get behind.  I got done testing one not too long ago.

Inconsistent cheek weld = inconsistent accuracy. I understand the post but think you are asking the wrong question.

Thanks for the replies so far. Rancid, I found an older review of the higher power K624 you did a while back. Any idea if they've addressed the glass and or CA issues you cited? Would they apply to the K312?

FYI, I was leaning toward the USO MR-10, but trying to keep an open mind here, thx.
