Looking for Scope choice input

Hi I am looking for some input on what would be a good scope under $500.00 I am going to be using it on a .22-250 and shooting varmits, would like something with magnification 6-18,6-20,6-24 with a 40MM bell and side paralax if possible. Any help would be great. Thanks

you might want to look at the Clearidge scopes. they have a 4-22x with a 30mm tube. reviews have been great. compact enough to be used on a carry gun(13") yet versatile enough to be used for varmints or long range. they cost about 600 though.

+1 on the Clearidge, the more I use mine the more I like it.

Sightron makes a great scope. It's slightly more than $500, but a great scope.
