SWFA SS 5-20x50 or Leupold 6.5-20x50??

Having your choice between these two scope which is the better scope?? Which one would you by?? Just looking for some good input here. I'm trying to narrow it down. Thanks. I like the viper pst too but I keep hearing about the scope being full of crap that settles on the reticle so I'm not considering it anymore

    Have you checked out the Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 that comes with target turrets, and you can get them with either Mil-Dot or Z-Plex reticle.

    I have one and it is awesome!

    Haven't looked at that one too much. A little. Doesn't look like they have much range of adjustment

    Ihave both.The field of view is better at 5x in SS.SSis 14.6 inch,32oz,10 mil per rev,and 30 mil adjust.Leupold is 14.5 inch,22 oz.5 mil rev.My mark 4 wa s about 500 more.I love the TMR reticle w/open center,but ss has 10 mil reticle.TheSS needs a throw ring on power it is stiff.I bought the SS used for $1000 and is one of my favorite scopes
