    The vermilion work for me. It shows the targets very good. Works in any sun or cloudy conditions.

    I use a polarized dark amber (same as brown) for sunny days. I'm sensitive to light and this let's me shoot without squinting.

    Talk to your Doctor and see if you see the color of the targets properly. All people do not see the colors the same.

    If you do,Vermilion(Red) is made to highlight Orange and darken Green. Works real good with Evergreen Trees as a background.

    For myself, in the conditions you describe, a light purple has been working very well.

    I have 11 sets of lenses and have used all of them from time to time ... The only ones I do not have are the Ice Blue ... I also have a set of HighDefSpecs and they are good for driving but not worth a damn for shooting ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I have fairly sensitive eyes to bright light. I have my best luck with the Light Purple and also Vermillion colors in that order with my Randolph Ranger shooting glasses. I can't stand the Yellow unless its really overcast or at dusk.
