I'm assembling a 5.56 AR-15 for shooting out to 600-800 yards. I'm torn between the Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44 FFP and the Bushnell Illuminated Match Pro 6-24X50. Both are:
>first focal plane
>Mil dot/ christmas tree reticle
But the Bushnell is $100 less than the Vortex while also providing an illuminated reticle. Reviews say the Bushnell's glass is good and it's well made. Is there any reason to get the Vortex over the Bushnell? I can get the Vortex at 40% off but I want an illuminated reticle.
