    Default Help needed: Best 6-24 Scope

    Hi All!

    Looking for a good scope in the 6-24 or 8-32 range, Budget under R10k.

    Side Focus scope, no AO.

    All the normal qualities of a good scope applies, but ranging and repeatability is the most important for me.

    Will be using the scope on my .22lr for sportshooting (holdover comes into play), and Silhouette shooting (Dialing in).

    All advice appreciated. Tnx

    Athlon Argos 6-24 x 50. Athlon scopes time and again are highly rated by the air rifle enthusiasts in the states as being really good for the price. They have many first focal plain models, nice reticles and focus down to 10m. Their warranty is pretty good too. Getting two models delivered today. Will give feedback once they are on my rifles.

    Sidewinders talk to most of your stated needs within budget :
    - Several models have 'tree' type mildot reticles which are nice for holdover shooting for both range and windage
    - moa turrets can be replaced with mrad turrets that give 10 clicks per mildot. Nice for dialling the scope in
    - one of the 6-24 models is available with FFP
    - you can put your own ranging marks on the sidewheel of which 3 different sizes are available.
