What type of shooting are you wanting to use it for?
I've looked thru a Steiner scope,and it was a nice scope. I've always liked my 4-16x50 Swarovski PH scope for hunting,but if your wanting to do long range work,there are many others that will do you better for long range shooting.
Nightforce scopes are hard to beat,and their glass will run right with the Swaro. You can get the NSX series in several power ranges- 2.5-10x,3.5-15x,5.5-22x,or even larger.
I also like Sightron SIII scopes,their glass is up there with the high end scopes,but they don't offer FFP reticles.I prefer a SCP so that's never been an issue to me. I have 5 of these scopes,and have never had any issues with any of them.
Vortex has a good following,but I don't think their glass is all that great compared to the Sightron SIII.
IOR Valdada makes excellent scopes,and their glass is top shelf
If you have deep pockets,then look at March,U.S.Optics,S&B,or Premier. You won't find better optics than these.
