I am looking for a scope to mount on top of my Anschutz 1517 (.17 HMR) to use maily for 100 yard prone competition.  I want something about 25X with target turrets and a target dot reticle.  I really like the Leupold FX-3 25X Silhouette, but can't find one in my area to demo.  I also like the Nixon Monarch 6-24 x 50 with target dot.  Both of these scopes are just about the same price.
 
I am curious as to which would have a bigger "sweet spot" at 24X.  That is the spot where your eye is the right distance from the scope to get the full view.  Too narrow a "sweet spot" makes it difficult to position one's head/cheek weld on the stock.  Which of these scopes has a bigger "sweet spot" and would be better for shootin prone with a sling at 100 yards?
