    Be careful not to put TOO much glass up there. It is likely that you will shoot better with a 4x at 200 yards than a 12x. Being able to see the nucleus of the atoms of the bullseye isn't always beneficial.

    I agree about getting a fixed magnification, just because you can get a higher quality glass and less shit to go wrong.

    ymmv

    I know I'm not going out to ranges beyond 350 yards (my range's maximum), so I wasn't planning on it.

    yea, for some reason, the entry lvel 4x market is full of airsoft scopes, and not many solid contenders. I'd be interested to know of some as well.

    if you're willing to go to that price range, check SWFA and look for the 'super sniper' scope. they also have a clearance website that is kind of a scratch and dent thing. might have scope ring scratches or some such. still 100 funciton though.

    I have a super sniper 10x on my Savage 308. Works well, has a pretty good
    rep.
