Response to FT scope for Hunter Class recommendations

As a new shooter, I have looked around at what people use and what's available in various price points and feature points.

The UTG 4-16x56 seems to be a pretty good choice for Hunter. It isn't the brightest scope, but it has side focus, an illuminated reticle (I find this a big help on dark lanes or dark targets), a rugged if large and heavy chassis, a mildot reticle and ranges decently considering its price, which is $200 or less.

That's pretty hard to beat.

I do know that Scott Hull advocates some of the wire reticle UTGs, which I think are or were even cheaper, but I couldn't quote a model and I don't know if they are even still made.
