Looking for scope suggestions
I was wondering if any of you could provide any suggestions as far as what scopes to look into buying.
My budget limit is $500 for the scope and the mounts.
This particluar rifle will probably not be used for hunting, so I do not need the absolutely most durable scope out there. Also, extreme light gathering abilities are not an issue. It will be used for target shooting on nice days and if the conditiions get bad, I'll pack up the rifle and stop shooting.
I'm looking for at least 18 power magnification or higher. I really, really want repeatability and ability to hold a zero. I will probably have very little patience for a scope that does not hold a zero and/or does not provide accurate adjustemnts. I want decent, functional optical clarity, except do not need that attribute in the extreme. Also, Mil-Dots are a major plus and in terms of non-Mil-Dot reticles, fine crosshairs are a plus.
Right now, I'm considering the Super-Sniper SS20X42 and the Bushnell Banner "Dusk to Dawn" 6-24X40. Both fit well under my budget limit. Do any of you have any experience with these brands?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
