Depends on the rifle. Heavy, square rifle, then 50 mm. Light, trim rifle, then 44 mm. The 50 mm is better optically, the 44 mm is better ergonomically.

Smallest and lowest you can mount and get away with.

Glass and coating quality is far more important than the size of the lens.

I agree with you. Do you not like the Vortex?
What would you recommend up to $700

He is a serious Vortex fan and supporter. And I tend to agree.

What's the job of this rifle and scope?

I like first focal plane, but this would be a good one anyway, and it's in your budget.

Another option, staying within budget.
