Hey shooters, so I have only had one question on here so far and it was about finding a new scope, well I have the same question only different this time.
So again I have a Savage 10 fcp-k .308, with a 20 moa scope base, I right now have a Vortex Viper that has true mil-dot at 14x.
My goal is to shoot at 1000-1200 meters, I have narrowed it down to 3 scopes:
1. Millett 6-25x56 LRS-1 with mil-mil (SFP) (not a real fan of SFP)
2. Falcon Menace 5.5-25x50 mil-mil (FFP)
3. The old trusty SWFA SS 20x42 or 16x42, (can't afford the 5-20 right now)
Please provide any knowledge you might have, I have never owned any of these brands, I have heard nothing but greatness about SWFA, I like the Falcon, but not sure what quality, and then the Millett, the only thing that gets me with it is it's SFP. Am I being nitpicky with SFP? It is a long range shooter, and hopefully a competition shooter if I can get into it. I am really wanting to get into the long range shooting scene, I live in the College Station/ San Antonio area in Texas, please let me know if anyone can get me a foot hold into the scene. 
Thanks guys

thanks, that's what I've been hearing from everyone so far, I do believe I will be the proud new owner of a SS here shortly.
