    Just me, but after going through a number of different brands and powers of scopes I changed out my airguns to Hawke Sidewinders. Price for the 24 and 32 power are almost the same. I went with the 32 and just turn it down. I have a boss also and it’s a great combo. Optics are as clear as scopes I have that cost 3 times as much.

    I’m gonna buy a Falcon optics 5.5-25×56 B20 ret in a few days.
    It’s an FFP scope in your price range which is very rare.
    From what I’ve read, it’s a very very good scope for the money with a 10 years warranty.
    Just check the falcon optics website and revers, you’ll see by yourself mate.. Just my 2 cents =)

    Best for what? Someone giving reasonable advice based upon actual experience would first have to know what you will use the scope for.

    Target shooting? Pest control? Hunting? Over what exact distances? For what game?

    If you upped your money’s a little. .400-500 you could get a Hawke sidewinder tactical 30. At that price point its the best bang for your buck

    Personally, if you really want max 24x, then I would get scondhand elite 4200 6-24×40 mildot. This has very good optics, AO starting 9meters, and relative low weight with 595 grams.
    But for me, best allround is elite 6500 2.5-16×42. Again very good optics, sideparallax from 9 meters, and lightweight 492 grams.
    I dont like the hawks much, due to optics which may be good or not , dpends on your luck, but never as good as the elites, and they weigh much more… Ofcourse they are sold by the hundreds, and many people rave about them, so i am prolly wrong….

    just my 2 cents

    regards, Mike

     Surprised no one has mention the Aeon scopes. Excellent value .
    And do note Bushnell does not recommend their scopes for airgun use ( yes folks pre-charged airguns included) and will not honor any warranty – perhaps it’s worse if they don’t have a replacement sitting?- if you say it was on an airgun even if it was defective day one.  That said if you buy a good used Bushnell and put it on a pre-charged it should last forever but if you want a warranty pick something else. They can be excellent scopes tho.
