Looking for a scope to shoot out to 1400+ yds(will be getting a 30 moa base also) but Nearly same price and looking into both. What do you think is better deal?

The ss is a 5-20. The first leupys I sold were my 8.5-25's. The picture was too dark with a narrow fov. It seemed like I was looking down an ink pen when I had it turned up. I dropped them in favor of the 6.5-20's.

That said, I think you'd be happier with the ss.

I just got the ss to replace my Mk4 6.5-20. Definitely more features than the mk4 , glass seems comparable. Hopefully I can get out to zero it this week and report back. The turrets are nicer on the ss. 20 moa base and I have 24 mils adjustment up.
