I am having a heck of a time making a decision on which scope to put on my new Howa 1500  .243

I thought I had it narrowed down between the Millett:
The Nikon:

Or the Weaver:

I like the illuminated reticle of the Weaver and Millet for night predator hunting but the Monarch is known to be a great scope.

I also like the tactical turrets on the Millet which the Nikon does not have and the weaver says they are somewhat like tactical turrets but with caps?

Is this Weaver Classic Extreme the quality you hear about in the forums from back in 2009 time period or has the quality changed in this scope since then. I have read a few different things concerning this and where they are currently being made, China Vs Japan for quality purposes.

Also, how do the turrets work on this weaver? Are they what I need them to be for a fully functional Mil-dot turret scope?

Thanks for the help
