Pros and cons of  these 2 scopes, will be mounted on a 300 WTBY with a Rapid Z reticle.  Any other scopes to consider in a some what close price range?

The 4.5x14x44 can be mounted a lot lower on the rifle

In addition to that the 4.5x14x44 has a side focus parallax adjustment, is lighter, shorter and costs a lot less.  Also the 4.5x14 can be had with a RapidZ 800 reticle which is superb.
 
The 56 mm objective would pick up more light but you could get a 4.5x14x50 with a RapidZ 800 and bridge the gap.
