Scope Input -Thank you to site posters

I recently asked for input regarding these two scopes below for my mod 7 7mm-08. First thank you to all who posted their real life experiences.

I got off work early today and was able to check out both of these scopes side by side. "For me" the Bushnell was much clearer, brighter and sharper. I also like the over all 1/4 M.O.A audible windage and elevation adjustments as well. The rain guard appears to be a plus for this scope based on others experiences as well. I did not buy at the local shop as I found the Bushnell at less price online than what the local dealer could offer.

$189.95 with a Free Waterproof Jacket from Bushnell, and free shipping.

So for my mod 7 it shall be a Bushnell ..
Thanks again all for your help.

Any input on which rings and base I should select?

The jacket is a pretty good jacket. Note they run a bit big.
