To my knowledge Leupod, Zeiss, Leica, Swardowski – none is making anything more than 30x.

What makes 40x scope used at 25yards with air gun such a nessesaty?

 

I shoot 25M benchrest. In benchrest you’re watching the flags with one eye and the holding off with the other. A 24X didn’t quite cut it for my over 50 eyes, so switched to 36X which is noticeably better.  

Most at my local range use Weaver, Sightron, and Leupold, with others here and there.  Best to try before you buy.

Leupold makes 45X for benchrest.  Sightron, Weaver, and possibly others 36X.
