Schmidt & Bender Short Dots and other High $ LPVO's (Updated: 4/13/18)

I'm still on the fence about it. When I compare features, capabilities, specs, etc. with other optics in the same class, it seems the juice just isn't worth the squeeze for a swap, unless my goal is to change the role of the rifle altogether, which isn't in the cards. Just entertaining the thought, not really committed to going through with it. The S&B pretty much answers the mail in every way except maybe overall size and weight (which isn't all that bad really considering it's role), but I prefer it over the Leupy Mark 6 for example. The ATACR has an arguably better Horus reticle option and is more compact, but the weight difference is negligible. The Vortex Razor G2HD is a solid option, but it tips the scale on being too chubby. Would love to have one on a dedicated bolt action precision rig though.  The Steiner T5xi seems to be a good candidate, but not sure if that would be a step down.  And of course we have the offerings from Minox, Kahles, USO, etc., but again, not sure they'll offer something over the S&B. For now it'll sit pretty on my MWS, which I plan to outfit with a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel sooner or later. It's been the primary optic for that particular set-up and at this point it would seem strange to have another optic sitting on top of it. First world problems.
