I was one of those crazy guys that spent over $400.00 for a Leupold 6.5-20X with AO back @ 1982-83for my 22.250 and a 4-12 Leupold with AO for my .22 LR Anschutz. My buddies thought I was nuts but they sure smiled when they shot’em at long and short range and saw what I could do with them! As long as you can get the lowest focus you’ll need and brightness you want then remember you can reduce the magnification for hunting and dial it up when desired. more magnification = more detail and tighter groups generally speaking. My vote goes to the higher magnification with a 50 bell if it’ll fit your mounts low enough to the bore for you. Remember you will loose some brightness to some degree at higher magnification which varies with the actual scope that you choose.
