    Hello Tone

    Thanks for the reply, the problem is I've asked too many people for their opinion...
    Now I need to make my own mind up:D.

    Just out of interest have you ever used the T36 on a black target like the 20 yard prone or 10m air rifle type. I think this is the sticking point when I've asked people. Most people using the T36, shoot benchrest on targets with the white 10 ring.

    Thanks again
    Paul

    If the target is well lit, a fine x hair with a centre dot is no issue.
    A Leupold comp is slightly better if the lighting isn’t that good.

    Thanks for the reply Geoff.
    We do have good lighting at the target end of the range.

    I think I'll have to order one and give it a go.

    Cheers
    Paul

    Well I finally bit the bullet (or should that be the AA field diablo:)) and ordered a Sightron SII 36x42. It turns out every one was right, it is suitable for 20 yard benchrest. So thanks for your help.

    It's going to take a bit of getting used to, 36x is alot of mag at 20 yards but that's part of the fun isn't it.
    Cheers
    Paul

    Only had chance for a bit of a play with it yesterday. Managed to get it mounted, zeroed and shot a couple of cards.
    First impressions are it is going to take some getting used to. Mainly because eye placement is very critical due to the exit pupil being so small. But also the 36x mag exaggerates every tiny movement. I think I'm going to have to learn some sort of Buddhist meditation to slow my heart rate for each shot:confused:.
