First time posting here, thanks for the opportunity to ask a few questions!

In looking for an affordable scope to put on a 700 heavy barreled .308 going to be used for 1000 yd F-Class (for now), I landed on 2 scopes:


1. Sightron S3 30mm 6x-24 50 MM side focus, 50 MOA elevation.

or

2. Burris Black Diamond 30mm 6x-24 50 MM side focus, 50 MOA elevation.

Both are fine plex, which I prefer for shooting targets, and are identical in specs as far as I can tell. 1/4 MOA clicks.  The scope will sit on a 20 MOA base. Will that be enough elevation with a 190 Gr SMK? 

 

Also can this set up be used for 100 yards as well with this 20 MOA base?

Any comments, or other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Frank D

Both are good scopes, both will work for your purposes. 

I like the adjustments on the Sightron a little more, but otherwise, get whatever you can get a good deal on.
