1. Sightron SII 1.5 -6 x 42 I can't find in my catalog any indication as to how fine the cross hairs are on this.

The Sightron SII 1.5-6 is a duplex reticle. Thick = 1.32 MOA, thin = .33 MOA at high power. The almost perfect centerfire hunting scope.

The Burris 6X HBR is a very specialized bench rest shooting scope with its AO ability. Not that you can't use it in a general sense though.

The Leupold Rifleman and VX-I scopes are good solid scopes, but there are much better value scopes in that price range, such as a discontinued Browning 2-7x 32mm for $114, available at Natchez, a LOW built to Bushnell Elite 3200 standards, without Rainguard, but Fully Multicoated, versus the VXI being only multicoated. Other better value scopes are the Weaver RV7.

I too would like to know what you plan to use the scope for: hunting , casual target/plinking, competition?

Thanks for the help guys,

Mostly what I use this Anschutz for is weeding the dandelions and rat tails out of the folks yard. My dad, my brother and I get together at the folks house and see who can cut them down the farthest. We also strike matches, and shoot groups on paper. Sometimes we hunt bugs (that's real varmint shooting:bthumb: )

It sounds like you might do best with a small general purpose scope, rather than a pure hunting scope. Here are my picks. All very light weight, under 12 inches long.

1. Leupold 3-9X EFR AO, $300 - $350, the gold standard for 3-9x AO scopes, highly recommended if money is not an issue, no target knobs, however 3rd party knobs exist, at least $100 of cost is being paid for Leupold service, Leupold resale, and Leupold name if that is important to you.
2. Clearidge RM 3-9X AO, LOW Japanese made scope, about $210, Best buy when compared to Leupold EFR's rather hefty price, comes with resetable target knobs, available in fine and duplex reticles,
3. Weaver RV9 3-9X AO, about $200, LOW made, similar to Clearidge RM, but without target knobs,
4. The wild card, Burris Timberline 4.5-14x AO, about $190, will probably start shipping by end of April, replaces current Burris ShortMag, made in Philippines, for person desiring a bit more power for target work, while still maintaining a short tube size, optional Burris Ballistic Plex reticles available.

Good luck
