OK, just a little comment for the heck of it.
This weekend I was shooting with some friends. We were shooting 223s at little things (rocks, pieces of clay birds or anything big enough to identify that would react to being hit) at 300 plus yards. One friend was using an older Leupold VX-III in 10x. The other friend was using a Nikon, but I'm not sure which one, but I think it was one of the 223 models in 3-12; anyway he's good with it. I was using one of the older (pre- MIL Quad reticle) SWFA SS 3-9x42.
We shoot early before the sun really gets up above the hills. A little after 0900hrs. the sun came out from behind the hills and woods and was looking down at us. My two friends had to stop shooting because they couldn't see anything with the sun shining on their objectives and the haze. I had a little haze in my view, but had no trouble seeing and hitting the things we were shooting at.
Back in the fall we had the same three rifles and scopes, and were shooting in a fog at the same stuff. my two friends had to quit then because they couldn't see, but I was still able to see and hit targets.
I'm not saying the SWFA SS is any better than the scopes discussed above, and I believe ILya's word is law, but I'm still impressed with the SWFA SS 3-9x42, especially for the money.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.
