Hi
Just thought I would speak up for the budget scopes, I have had this SP Raptor 6-24x50 on my 223 for 2 years and now it is on my hmr.
Never had a problem with it and it works well with the night vision.

How about this scope?
Bushnell 6-18x50 for £150 from £200

on the .17HMR

http://www.swillingt...Banner-6-18x50/



Or this Simmons Prohunter 6-24 x 42 AO for £130
http://www.swillingt...r-6-24-x-42-AO/



I want the best possible quality scope that has at least 16x for rabbit shooting - what can you reccomend thats good value ?
Needs to be under £150 , as i dont see any need to spend silly money , as my BSA 6-24X50 is actully doing 85% of what i want allready.

How about this scope on the .17HMR ?
Bushnell Banner 6-18x50 Illuminated for £90 down from £200 at Sportsman Gun Center

Great deal? Will the optics be much better than the BSA ?

Just needs to be clear at magnification over 20x - but my BSA at the moment is perfect quality optics at 14x-16x cant get any clearer (even if you could, it doesnt need to be )

If you have to spend less than 150 quid, save your money for now. you won't beat the BSA by any great margin. You need to be spending £200+ to beat that really - most of the Chinese stuff is pretty similar. You could try MTC, but tbh I really think you're better off saving. To buy chinese again is only going to be a waste of your money.
