Ok this is the clincher ok! Its out of these two. Rifle is a Winchester M70 XTR in 264 Win mag. I am going to shoot paper targets to 500yards and federal pests up to 400yards,very rarely. Most game at a distance of 20 to 250 yards. Most shooting done at range. Also what mounts do you suggest?

I would go for the higher magnification with either a varmint or mildot reticule.
 
It is difficult to decide against the Mk4. If you enjoy dialing windage and distance, the Mk4 is the way to go, but you are paying in a bit on the 500yds target with the lower magnification. If your 500 yd target is 10 inches + then 14X should be OK.
 
Difficult call.

federal pests ???? don't dare comment on that.

personally I think the new vx is a better buy-- mk4 uses the older index matched glass, the turrets on the new vx are pretty good, a better spring system,  the mk4 is an older design --leo is coming out with a new tactical to replace it.
