Hi all, having never competed before, but having lots of knowledge of all the different scope brands and scope models out there.  I have what I believe to be a good question.  But first off......
...I have no idea how people afford S&B scopes or Kahles, ect. without taking out a second mortgage or having a spouse that makes more money than I do.  and I WILL NOT use a Vortex Brand optic...ever.  for reason of their quality control.

So....do you have to have a zero stop on your optic to be completely effective?
Anybody ever use these scopes in comps....
Sightron sIII 24x ------------------seems to be a bad ass optic but no zero stop
Trijicon accupoint 20x with turrets----- seems to be and excellent optic but no zero stop and limited elevation.

I can get Bushnell DMR 2 cheap, burris xtr IIs cheap......

Perhaps you should refrain from giving opinions on any optics in the future.
Every time you make a typo, the errorists win.

I've had the DMRs in the past.  Though it was the HDMR because I like the H59 reticle.  They are good scopes for the money.  I think a definite step up over a PST Gen 1 however they are also a bit more pricey.

I won't use any reticle that doesn't have 0.2 MIL subtensions for wind and elevation.  I tried two Gen 2 razors in an effort to standardize my set up across the board but hated the EBR-2C reticle.  I went back to a S&B Ultra Short w/H59 and the fiance's NF ATACR 7-35 MIL-C is arriving on Saturday.
It pays to be a winner.

Save up, credit cards, etc... Its alot cheaper to buy it once, rather than to start off with a $500 scope, then upgrade to a $1000 scope, then $1500, then $2500. Don't waste money "financing" good glass. Buy once, cry once.

As far as the 24x and 20x scopes, I'm going to assume you're talking about PRS type shooting. It would be very hard to compete with a fixed power scope at that magnification. 90% of stages and shooters are probably between 10x and 14x. A few prone, long range stages you may use that 20-25x but generally you're going to be well under that.


I would use the Bushnell DMR2 over the XTR2. Better glass and reticle IMO.
But both are solid scopes. I had an XTR2 and sold it because the glass quality was so terrible.
