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.

Given that the reticles in both scopes are something I can work with, which one between the PA GL 4-16x50 RGrid2 and the Arken EP4 4-16x50 gets the nod? I understand the PA has a little more elevation available, and the Arken is a 34mm tube. I understand that the glass on both is surprisingly good for the price point of the scope, and the Arken has very good tracking. I would primarily be using this as a LR plinker out in the pasture out to 890 yards (farthest I can safely). Thanks for your time and input.
