I worked my way up the scope ladder, buying a couple, borrowing a couple, until I got a Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24 MD scope. I used holdover for 4 years, so the mildot reticle worked great. I've just begun to click the elevation and it makes it much easier to hold on-center for each shot. The best advantage with the 4200 scope is the rangefinding ability. With the lower quality scopes, almost anything past 35-40 yards was a crapshoot, especially in dim or poor light. While I'm far from an expert at rangefinding, I can usually be close enough to where it's my shooting ability( inability?) that lets me hit or miss at the longer ranges, not a poor scope. The 4200 8x32 is even better.
