I have had the following hft scopes, (from what I remember)
Mtc viper 10x44
Mtc viper 3-12x44
Bushnell 6500 2.5-16x42
Eb sniper 10x42
Nikko diamond 10x42
Sightron 10x42
Light stream 4.5-14x44
Leupold mk4 2.5-8x36

I found that for the money the viper and the eb are the best

Do MTC scopes do a target scope suitable for paper punching or bench rest shooting.

They do the Taipan which may be suitable for bench rest shooting, not much cop for hft though!

I still use an old hawke SR-6, I find it better than the new MTC's personally. I had an MTC mamba when they 1st came out & I wish I never sold it, I just don't think the MTC's are as good anymore, certainly not the ones I looked through recently. Can't fault MTC's customer service though (if you speak to Sammy, not Gary )
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.

My Hawke SR6 (70 quid 2nd hand 18 months ago) has done me proud and has been a great scope for HFT. Its let down a bit on optics, but on the plus side, has been good on paralex, decent blur amounts at close and long without getting stupid, absolutelly maintains zero.

Tried MTC Viper 10x didn't like it, Hawke panorama, didnt like it. Bought a MTC connect SL 24mm version. Still to give it some proper range time, but initial impressions are good. With low mounts I can get decent cheek weld on the standard S400 stock, which i couldnt get with a 40/44mm objective lense. Sight picture seems nice and bright, low focus distances on high mag which is good.

If it cuts down PX error, (which I have witnessed being quite bad and alignement being critical on some scopes I have tried) and DoF is as good as Ive heard it is, I'll be a happy bunny if I make some metal bunnies unhappy
