I started my first bolt gun build, a .204 Ruger for PD and the bench.  So far I have on order:

LRPV Action, RB/LP - timed and trued
SSS Long Range Bench Rest stock
Benchmark barrel, 1:10 twist

I've decided on a Sightron SIII scope, but am having trouble with the final decision of going with the 6-24x50 or the
8-32x56

One of the primary objective for this build is to be able to easily see the bullets hit on paper or fur  ie lots of forgivenes on eye releaf.

Which one of these scopes will accomplish that best when set at 18-22x? 

Thanks,
Scott

If you are looking for the most performance at high magnifications, go with the 8-32x56

Both great scopes but I would take the 8-32x56 also.
