Millett TRS 4-16x50 vs SWFA SS 10x42(or 12x42, 16x42)
I've been looking at scopes and these two seem to be the standouts so far. They both seem to give good bang for buck, but I'm having a hard time narrowing it down further. How do they compare in clarity, light transmission etc? I could take or leave the two major differences, illuminated reticle and variable power.
Also, what height(and brand) rings are folks using with these? The safe bet seems to be mediums from the height chart at brownells and the specs I can find. But medium also seems to vary a bit between manufacturers. For both I've looked at the DNZ one piece rings/mount for simplicity, or the millett tac rings and 1 piece base.
