I second your choice of Vishay CMF/RN resistors. Have not tried the Beyschlags, though from a quick glance over at Mouser, they seem extremely inexpensive, even in high precision flavor.
Technically, it seems the RN/RL is the mil-spec version of the CMF (which is "global/industrial" type), though I agree - they're likely the exact same resistor inside with different scribbles on them. When "mil-spec'd," they seem to derate them to lower handled power at a given temperature (though not on the same sheet, so I'm not very sure what that's about).
I did notice though, at least at Mouser, I tend to find the RN cheaper than the CMF for a given value. They have the added nuisance of the weird value markings, but once you get used to the aspect, no biggie. The CMFs typically have very normal, spelled out values with no coding whatsoever, so that's just a bit easier on the eyes.
I personally prefer any alphanumeric markings to color coding any day of the week.
