I've been running this scope on a .308 bolt gun as well as a Super Match M1A. I have always been a total Leupold or Nightforce buyer for LR or precision rifles. I fell into a Sightron III two years back and have been amazed at the performance. This is a great scope. Clear with repeatable adjustments. For the money...heck of a bargain in the LR optics field.

I bought this scope for my .308 Savage 10 Precision rifle on the recommendation of a shooting buddy who has one. The day mine arrived, I 'eyeball- boresighted' it, and took it out to the range. My first round was on paper at 25yd, and I got a nice tight group for my 100yd zero. I then put up a target at 300yd (my first foray out beyond 100m since my Army days!) spun the elevation turret and promptly put five rounds inside 1 MOA. I didn't need my spotting scope to see those holes in the paper--the Sightron's glass is better!
To celebrate I then clanged the 300yd GONG with my next ten rounds. 300yd accuracy is no longer the challenge it used to be with my other scopes. Now I want to reach out to 1,000!
Clicking back to my 100yd zero--it was still spot-on!
This scope is worth every penny; thank you, Sightron!
