Big Beesa Platinum 10-50x60 on my Alpha Male FT rig. I bought two in Germany for the equivalent of 450 euro new (my wife has the other one atop her CR-X). Superbly bright, razor-sharp, rangefinds like nothing else I've seen, and is very insensitive to temperature changes. Wheels by Jon Harris.
If it would have a multi-aimpoint reticle, this would really be the Dog's Whatsits.

BSA 8-32 x 44 with mildot reticle (to go atop the HW97k). A far cry from the above Big Beesa in clarity, sharpness and rangefinding, but excellent value for money.

Hello Rob, Falcon T50 could do with adding. mine comes down to 7y on full mag as standard. The latest ones are silver and come with a big wheel as standard for 400. Not sure if they are Jon's wheels or not, maybe he can confirm.

10-40x50 ZOS (notice you have the 10-40x56, but not the smaller one) side wheel, focus down to 10 yards, bit dark at 40x in woodland shade, no longer available new (AFAIK) I've not paid more than 65 used, standard 100mm side wheel gets a bit 'fiddly' at 50 - 55 yards
also
8-32x50 Gun Tuff no longer available new, and very few examples still working - I paid 79 for it new (& AFAIK, it's one of the few still working) no large side wheel 'off the shelf' for it, but for the money, it does well.

Default MARCH 10+60 Mag

Had this scope 6 months and just starting to understand it . you cannot just pick it out the box and win i don't think . but once you do know it then the money spent is i think worth it . 1900 secondhand with the box paperwork , the thin mounts , two sidewheels . sunshad i use the jon harris sidewheel now cos the scope looks very plain and it jazzes it up a bit along with my shiny coaster . only moan is the top turret

ARE YOU LISTENING MR HARRIS . way to slippery , needs an extended one made ??? HOLLY
