I'm after two scopes for my rimfires (22lr & 17HMR) .
I've got a Hawke Sport HD 4-16x50 AO currently on the HMR but its *****, milks out a higher mags, this has slightly put me off Hawke scopes. I only got it because the one on my air rifle is good (3-9x50 Sport HD AO IR)
How do the higher end Hawke scopes perform, I was looking at the Eclipse 30 side focus 4-16x50, I'd expect it to be better glass than the Sport HD range.
The other scope I was looking at is the MTC Viper 4-16x50, but this is about £50 more expensive.
What do you guys think? Looking for variable scope min x3 mag, max x16. 50mm objective lens with focus either pref side focus. About the £200-250 price range, as I need two.
