    For me, there’s no substitute for a zoom.

    If the scope is a cheapy (sub $100), no zoom.  The no-zoom cheapies are (usually) more durable than the zoomable cheapies.  The cheapy is also based upon list price.  If you find a scope which is a sub $100 special, which is normally priced much higher, it may go well for you. Always test your zoomable scope to determine if the point of aim changes as you zoom (shoot 5 shots at minimum zoom, then 5 shots at maximum zoom).  All the shots had better be hitting in the same spot.  Finally, there is always the “good one/bad one” scenario; same brand and scope purchased is much better/worse than the one you bought a week before.  Quality control can bite even companies with good reputations, however, the Chinese scopes seem especially susceptible to this issue.  Keep in mind, most of the Chinese scopes do Not have a Chinese name on them.  I have a Chinese “BSA”.  
    I tend to like scopes with a zoom; but, I also tend to leave them at the zoom level where the Mil-Dots are accurate most of the time.
