    Budget? For a mid to low budget the the Vortex Viper is hard to beat. They make both a 44 or 50mm in 6.5x20. Bob

    I see used Leupold VX III scopes in the type you want here on GB for as low as $700.00. That is what I would buy. In fact I bought two last year on GB, just in lower power ranges and also lower price ranges $400.00ish

    Another vote for Leupold.

    I stopped supporting Leupold a couple of decades ago. Overpriced and under-delivered in quality when compared to other glass. They have continually fallen behind in comparison to the better glass makers and scope companies and their prices are still just as high or higher. Please don't bring up American made either because the parts are made overseas and merely assembled in the U.S.

    variable up to 18 or 20x

    Asking about 18 or 20x usually indicates longer than the normal ranges most folks hunt. A plain duplex is pretty hard to manage at longer ranges by repeatable holdovers without some points of reference. Minimal indicators are available to remove some of the potential misses when shooting or hunting at longer ranges.

    You still have the design of the basic duplex with the plus of some holdover and holdoff marks. You can use this either way when called upon.

    There are probably a dozen others in this price range when you decide on more of the options.
