Bushnell 8-32x40 mill dot
Big nikko 10-50x60
Falcon T50
Try as many as you can before you spend your money. Everyone has their favourite and it's not the same for all!!

I have used a Burris 8 - 32 for the last 7 years or so, I keep thinking I want more mag and have tried the Bushnell (like looking through a keyhole compared to the Burris), Leupolds (Comp, MK4), Big Nikko (Mk1, 2, and 3). I've looked through a March, S&B (FT didn't like, PMII VERY nice), Sightron, and so far I've always gone back to the Burris.

I've just got my hands on a T50, haven't tried it on a gun yet but it seems very clear for the money, and tested freehand from my shed door out across the common range finding looks good. Going to get it on a gun tonight/soon and we'll see what's what.
