Good morning everybody! I did post this on the optic format but doesn't look like I'm going to get any responses. Picked up this 716 not too long ago and would like some opinions on that optic, I was thinking about getting! I'm very new to rifles so if you have something nasty to say just please keep on scrolling and don't comment! I'm just here to learn and pick up a new hobby. My one reason with doing a Sig optic was because I have a family member that gets a discount. Thank you kindly!

I have not shot with one, but looked at this scope at our Cabela's and it is quite nice to look at. The glass seems to be quality to me. I don't think you could go wrong with it.

Are you getting the first or second focal plane?

I was thinking FFP. Will never be doing any hunting. It will be only for the range, for targets. This is all very new to m.e I never had a scope before or a rifle for that matter. I've been doing research on both. What would you recommend?

Your scope choice is an excellent one for long range shooting beyond 300 yards. One click on the scope at 100 yards will move the point of impact 0.36 of one inch, i.e., it's an MRAD scope based on the metric system.

SIG makes a similar scope base upon the English measurement system based on minutes of angle were one click is about .26 of one inch. The main difference is to set your range finder to whatever the scope is geared to with MOA having a slight advantage in adjustability and MRAD making calculations on the fly faster and easier.

I have both a Tango6 scope and a Tango4 scope. The Tango6 has better glass and better Motac. Remember that Motac only has a five year warranty while the rest of the scope has a forever warranty.

I guess a question to ask is what do you want your rifle to do? How far do you want to shoot it?
I had a sig scope, sold it with the rifle but just looked at another one on Friday and liked the glass of his tango 6 vs my other buddies tango 4, however both are great.
I have had a lot of positive feed backs from guys (and myself) that track ability and returning to zero is no problem. I have noticed on a few scopes the elevation turret seems a little mushy but I think that is lack of break in on the o ring.
It boils down to reticle for me a lot of the time. Look through them, find one that relaxes you. Simplify your purpose in which you choose to use that rifle. Only you can make that call.

Pretty much just outside Target practicing. It's a thousand-yard gun, so I would like a scope that would would be able to do that. I mean realistically I'll probably never find a place over 300 yards. Just would like to have the option if it ever arises and somebody could teach me to shoot that far
