ShadowChaser, I have the Sightron 6-24X42 SII Big Sky on my Phoenix in .204 Ruger. I love it! It has target knobs with nice tactile feel, 1/8 MOA target dot, and very fine reticle lines which have not been a problem to see in the fields of western Kansas. Bright, clear optics. Spent weeks comparing scopes and specs, viewing in shops, and the Sightron won hands down. Was lucky enough to get one on sale at Midway at the end of 2008 for about $140 less than their current high price due to exchange rates, etc. Good luck with your search and shooting.
