IMO, Leupold is one of the best Scopes out there in quality and warranty. Either one of your choices is good. I use Leupold on all of my silhouette rifles and pistols as well as my Hunting rifles, pistols and revolvers. Even use Leupold spotting scopes and binoculars. Over the course of the silhouette season I adjust my scopes for various distances and windage more than a hunter would in six lifetimes. They are rugged and repeatable. As for warrenty, I blew the reticle out of one Scope that was mounted on a 45-70 and it was totaly my fault. A set of binoculars that I dropped around 20 feet off a rock ledge breaking the glass again my fault. Both were replaced with new items no questions asked. Enjoy your new Leupold, knowing for the money they are the best out there.
