Any one using the Nightforce SHV 3-10x42 or the Steiner GS3 2-10x42 or 3-15x50? All 3 options are under $1,000 and i was curious what your giving up going for these more budget friendly options from either companies compared to their more expensive scopes. Mostly for a hunting rifle and occasional 800-1000 yard target shooting. Recently was also considering the Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-15x42. All of them seem to be good choices on paper so i was hoping Rex or anyone else has run one of these options.
Has anyone used the S18i scope. I know it is a lower cost scope but I am also starting out in long range shooting. I am currently using a Savage Axis II heavy barrel in 308 in a Boyd At-One stock. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
