You say that you'd like to upgrade to something like a 10-30X56 scope.
That sounds like you have been looking at the Hawke scope. I may be wrong but if I'm not, do not, I repeat, do not buy the Hawke 10-30X56 scope. When I got into shooting everyone said to buy second hand stuff and to listen to experienced shooters. Well, I didn't and wasted £370 on a Hawke 10-30X56 scope.
Do what I didn't do and buy second hand and listen to experience rather than advertising.
All the best
