Red donut. How can you not love donuts!!

Red. Brighter and red contrasts more with natural environment. Amber can wash out a little more.

I like amber. It's brighter. Everyone's eyes are a little different, try before you buy.

my vote goes to red

That depends on who's eyes are looking through it, and the backgrounds you would most likely be shooting the most in.

Try them both and then decide; Don't buy based on other's opinions here. That's like asking, "What size pants do you wear?" and then buying the size that was the most popular answer.

I agree about the backgrounds especially. Here in AZ, everything is brown, so the red stands out a lot better. In a greener environment, the amber might be a little better than it is here, but I think red gives you a lot more versatility.

Red sounds like the way to go but I will try them both.

Red,

And then use tape or a bike innertube to cover up the fiber optics when you need a more precise aiming point.

Tag for more on this statement. I'm leaving work right now to go home to try this out on my TA31.

Ive found the red to interact with flashlights better.

Yeah, I heard about this technique last week when I asked about zeroing. It tightened my groups quite a bit.

I have both. I prefer red, but I would try them both and see what works best for you. Watch-Six
