    ZOS 10-40X60, simply best in the price range.

    I can second that...... ZOS 10 to 40 by 60......

    If you want to do some long-distance shooting as well, this is the way to go.....
    Anything below 16 X magnification limits you to see the pellet holes at the longer distances.....
    The new ones have a much smaller mil-dot reticle, which is ideal for bench-rest shooting.....

    plinking is just messing around and for hft you have a max mag of 12 and for ft it is unlimited, so the 10-40 should do just fine for what you want to spend

    Got one but without illum recticle. Great out to 40 metres but that could just be my glasses. You will need a wheel extender or larger wheel to range 40 to 50 metres for FT as with the wheel supplied they are about 3mm apart. Check with Lloyd, he usually has them in stock or knows where to get them quickly. Enjoy your scope. Calibrating to your rifle and getting to know the scope takes a lot of shooting. Wonderful.
