I can't speak for all scopes, but I have ad a couple of those Simmons that I mentioned, for years, and they have worked well for me.

We all have our opinions, so here is mine. Donít cut corners with optics. Do it right the first time and it will last a lifetime. Buy the very best you can, even if it costs much more than the rifle. You will never regret it. Avoid fine crosshairs. They are for shooting paper in ample daylight.

Scopes is something I have a fair bit of experience with, I might be able to help decide. I'm not in favour of high magnification is simply the physical size of most high powered riflescopes. I find it less than attractive to see a 50mm (objective diameter) scope perched on a trim hunting rifle. I tend to pick my scoped in good comparison, let's say at day and night, It simply looks silly to me. I do understand that a big scope may be desirable under special circumstances, but coming from a pilot who never felt the need for a big complicated pilot's watch in my 20-year military flying career, I'm not believing a bit of it's being a necessity. Function, yes, but let's not overdo it, folks.

Great info above. No problem using a shotgun scope on a rifle. They also usually have thicker crosshairs.
