    Title says most of it.  I’ll use this .25cal as a target shooter (for fun, not Field Target), backyard pesting, small game hunting, and prairie dog shooting.

    Shots will range from 20yds to 100+yds.

    I’m currently looking at the MTC Viper Pro, Aztec Emerald, Athlon Argos, and a few from Vortex.  All of these would be in the 5x-30x type of range with a BDC reticle of some sort. MTC Viper Pro is probably at the very tip-top of my price range and it would really need to be something special for the $600 price tag.

    Your thoughts, other options, recommendations?  Thanks in advance.

    MTC Viper Pro or Hawke Airmax 30mm are your best options under $600.  Can’t go wrong with either, but I’d lean towards the 5-30×50 Tactical. I have 2 and they are great optics with a very fine recticle that is great for target shooting and subtle lighting for hunting situations.

    If you want a good deal on a Airgun scope check out the Tac Vecter Sentinel line…..for less than $200 it’s everything you would want in a Airgun scope with surpringly good glass..30mm main tube side focus and a lit half mil dot reticle.You can spend alot more if you want but these are great scopes at a very competitive price.

    I would recommend checking out Joe’s channel, he gives honest reviews and extremely helpful advice: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWL2TQa6Ug_qqj36AgPp2XA

    I just spoke with him this morning, by the end of the conversation I put in an order for a SWFA scope.

    I too am awaiting FX Crown in ,25.
    Have bought in readiness Viper pro 5-30x 50 as mentioned here already.
    Mounts – seemngly need either FX no,limits or Sportsmatch ATP 66 . Both are high,30mm and height adjustable. The latter is also left/right adjustable for centring to the bore not the rail.
    Trying the Viper on my Vulcan it is short on MOA so essential for height adjustment.
    Further according to Professor Ted, essential on the Crown.
    Think I will buy the Sportsmatch item.
    re Viper only used it a little , like the concept of turret adjustment shown in little screen. Nicely made but I do not hunt, so the weight of the Viper is not an issue. Would think unsupported shooting with the Crown/Viper combo is not for everyone.Worth taking scope weight into account.

    Think Joe says – do you wanr  Ir? Do you want a nice box? Do you want to pay 30% more than scope is worth for hype advertising? Etc etc.
    Very very  valid points. 

    Safe shooting

    SWFA FFP Scope with HD glass is the way to go.

    Update:  I decided on the FFP Athlon Argos BTR 6-24×50 in MOA.  My first FFP scope, we’ll see how I like it.

    Thanks everyone for the info and opinions!
