I plan on putting this on a bolt gun (which one idk yet) and want the "best" scope. I know there are alot but just one these top tier ones. 3-3.5k price range.
I'm thinking my range will be in the 600-800 yd range as I will most likely be buying a .308.
That put aside.......
These questions are based off of USO website....
Looking at the SN-3 T-Pal 5x25. Seems to be awesome, anything I am missing by choosing this one?
First: I went to USO website and they literally have 10 reticules to choose from. Why would you choose a,b,c, or d? There seems to be so many fricken choices. My goal would be at the very LEAST to hit a human at 800yds with ease. More accurate to I suppose but thats a start. What reticule would be good for that? Loaded question I am sure, but I don't know enough to give you any more info so ask me specifics if you want.....
Second: The windage option seems to be in mil and moa. Mil is more precise right? You say they are quicker and at 800 yds one click is .36 inches. Therefore, wouldn't moa be quicker since your moving more per click? Therefore the 1/10 mil seems to be the more "precise adjustment right? Also, there is an option for "windage stop" what does that mean? Would you go turrets over the normal screw type or go with the normal ones so you could screw on the dust cover?
Third: Elevation should be the same as you windage right? Also what is EREK? The knob seems to be much larger than normal. What makes them good for the extra $175?
Fourth: What tube size to go with a .308? It seem 35mm is good only for larger calibers? 34mm seems to be for european guns mostly? And 30mm the average. Please explain why I would want to go with x, y or z.
Fifth: I would want the lit reticule. Anyone know the battery life?
Sixth: Is the extended eye relief worth the money or is "stock" form better?
Think that's it.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
