Same price basically for both. #1 is the SWFA SS 10X42 with a really nice reticle at $299.99 or the Vortex Viper 6.5-20X44 Mill dot reticle. The Vortex is on sale right now at Cabelas for the same price. Maybe someone can sway me one direction before I buy one. I am leaning towards the SWFA based on it being Mil-spec but I know the Vortex has the warranty and probably better glass. Gonna use one of the two on my .300 Weatherby when I get it back with a new Bell and Carlson stock piller bedded.
