I'm looking for a scope in the 14-16x max, 42mm or 44mm in the $250 range. I have had luck so far with Vortex, but I have read where some think that there might be some better options available.
I would appreciate any input on this.
And yes, per my wife, 250 is the limit.
Thanks again.

At that price point I don' think I would go with 14x-16X. I don't think your glass quality will be very good at that magnification. Probably be much better with 9x-10X max power.

I have one of these. It's a 3-10 mil dot, SFP, mil turrets. Made in Japan. Glass is good for the price point.
