    It depends what you want to do with it i.e woodland , hill etc


    Variable
    i i use a swaro z6i 2.5 x 15 x 56 ticks all the boxes low mag to high mag



    or you could go fixed mag schmidt , swaro or zeiss


    with what you have to spend you could buy most anything that will suite your needs


    as for illumination this time of year i like a little dim dot if im shooting into woodland

    You will definitely see the advantage of the little red dot if in dark woodland at last light. Optics are good enough to see target but reticule is invisible against something like a melanistic fallow or sika.

    Alright James mate, I've got a duralyt 3-12-50 on my 243, all you need really, I didn't see the point of a 200 dot either! You can have a look through mine in real situations in a couple of days time if you want?
