The Swarovski is nice, but not designed specifically for three gun.
And while IOR would be utilized well, I have noticed that the rheostat on it's highest intensity "blooms" the reticle, likewise for the Razor.
I am not say that the SS is the best scope in a 1-4 because I work here.
I am saying it's the best scope based on it's preformance.
Personally I am a fan of Vortex products and IOR, I think that they have both created quality products that can be utilized very well.
Leupold's illumination words very well, too. I haven't noticed where is blooms or is overpowering, distorting your sight picture.
They key is finding an illumination setting that is adequate for day time and has the adjustments you are looking for.
Some time last year JonA did a side by side comparision with Schmidt & Bender's Short dot, Night Forces NXS, and the SWFA SS.
As you read through the comparision you can see how definitive the SS reticle is and how the illumination is utilized during the day and at night.

Our 1-4x24 utilizes a first focal plane reticle that gets larger as the magnification increases so that it is always subtending the same measurements regardless of magnification, so you can use the reticle on any power setting.  There is no impact shift either, you will hit the same spot regardless of magnification setting.

I think this is critical when useing optics for ranging objectives.
