They will both hold up.

I've had my 4.5x14 on my 8lb 7mm Rem Mag for the last 5 years it works fine. Guess what scope I had on it before that? 3-10, it worked fine too, that one is on a 7mm-08 now.

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

S&B has several models of 4X-16X scopes. If the significant price difference is no problem go with the S&B. The S&B is a much better scope; it's in the same class with Zeiss Diavari and USO.

The Zeiss/Hensoldt scopes are fantastic, and very expensive, but I don't think they are currently available in the U.S.
