If mostly for lamping i'd either go for a 8x50/56 fixed power or a variable scope WITHOUT paralax adjustment. Nothing worse than having to fiddle about with image clarity when time if of the essence. An illuminated reticule also helps a lot.
Most important thing is to MAKE SURE YOU LOOK THROUGH IT FIRST. Nothig worse that buying something off t'interweb and realising you don't get on with it.

If you want a quality scope that will last for years at an affordable price for quality glass scopes check out the Meopta range...

Thanks guys I was looking into Nikon and Hawke scopes what are they like ?
Nikon are good. Hawke not so much so IMO. I favour fixed power scopes, but it's a personal thing. I've have an 8x56 Docter on my 223 bought second hand for less than £300 and a 8x56 S&B on my 308.

Many cheap scopes don't like bright sunlight on high magnification". I have MTC 4-16 and 2x MTC 6-24's, 6-24's not so good on a sunny day against white targets on high magnification....Quality secondhand would be a better recommendation from me...If you dont like the scope than you can always flog it an get what you paid back too...Unlike new cheap ones.

On my 6br long rang plinker and day time foxer has the nightforce NXS 8-32x56 np2dd on it
You can pick a second hand NXS up for £1000 or maybe little less, remember your optics is what will pay especially at night

Yep its the glass ur paying for my 6.5x47Lapua has an IOR 5.8-40x56 with Schott glass....you certainly notice the difference when you chop and change between glass on different rifles.

Will hold its value, quality glass and wont cost the earth and will last a long time.
R Mcleod & Son in Scotland carry a really good selection of new & used optics, real genuine honest guy in his descriptions of his scopes and fast delivery.

i always go into a shop, try the scope that i like and then buy it off the net.......I know it's cruel to the shop owner, but it's a cruel world
That way you have looked through the glass and know its good for you and your setup!
