Re: Max magnification
My personal favorite all around scope between these two would be the 5.5-22x 50mm. For nothing but casual target shooting, as mentioned you can go with more mag power but in most air conditions and mirage situations, 22x is going to be around max for all but a select few shooting situations.
Just an good all around scope for everything on a medium to heavy rifle.
