sorry but a very silly question when you put a 10x limit on the question.
not much of a br question as most classes are high powered scopes or 6x.

no info on intended use...?? distance, hunting ,target ,air rifle................
fixed power, variable ,???/

this might be why there are few comments.

WOW This should open a can of worms
modern scopes or antique or all other scopes?
Recoiling scopes? fixed power scopes?
Foreign scopes or domestic?

Probably the best " value" for a premium optic in that range might be the Leupold 4.5x-14x LRT's.

NOPE..U WENT OVER 10X....
stupid rules on a stupid question
and he asked for the best scope, not the best value...

no..you have to pretend it is a 4.5-9.9x....
(under 10x was teh requirement....sort of like outboards...
under 10 hp..so all kinds of 9.9's out there)

I know what you mean Gerry. I may not call it the finest, but we have a 10x Unertl on a .22 Marciante Blue Streak. Wouldn't trade it for any current production glass. I love my March, but the nostalgia factor with Unertls is tough to beat.

Welcome Conrad. A little food for thought. It might not be quite a badge of honor to be mentioned in the same sentence with Mike.

The old 6x Burris HBR scopes had some of the best resolution, and we're rock solid.

like new @ a match I attended. Didn't appear to have ever been mounted, for $200. It is residing on my Rimfire Sporter :cool:. I can see the rings again! Those older shiny black scopes have great glass in them.

Gary, I don't post much anymore but here's my two cents..

I hunt virtually every day of the year ( assuming that is what this scope is for )...

I used to use the 3.5X10 Leupold AO.. It had a reasonable size and weight but I'm not sure they make them anymore..
So I went the 4.5x14 one inch tube also with the AO.. Its the same size and weight as the 3.5x10..
This not a consideration for a dangerous game rifle.

I've had many of the more expensive, heavier, bulkier scopes and don't own a single one now..
I promise I don't miss or give up a single shot to the more expensive models and this scope is of reasonable size and weight to CARRY..

I don't sit on my ass while out hunting; I'm on the move and I carry the rifle. Size and weight is a consideration..

Yeah, it's more than 10 power.... If you don't like 11, 12, 13 and 14 don't go there !

The "Finest Scope" is the one that performs flawlessly.

You may have to buy more than one before you find the finest.

Same is true for barrels,bullets, etc. (Did I say Wives?:D)

tape a 4.5-14X at say 8X and meet the rules?

As far as the best, not currently offered, but still not uncommon in the used market is the El Paso Weaver 6X. Get one, send it to Bill Ackerman to blueprint, and you'll have arguably the finest 6X scope ever offered...mechanically. Ask Wall Siebert...God rest his soul! --Greg
