The Discovery line of China scopes might be nice candidates for review by Joe Wayne Rhea. However, I don't know if these have already arrived in the USA.
I recently read a UK magazine review of the Discovery HD 10x44 SF IR, a chunky 30 mm HFT scope from a line that now have a UK importer.
Interesting specs and especially the Illuminated "DLTW MIL reticle" with numbered 1-Mil lines, ½-Mil and even ¼-Mil marks, floating central cross and hollow see through outer posts plus windage dots (in a "tree" shape plane), adjusted with .10 mil clicks - looks good on paper.
Push-pull lockable knobs, with zero re-set. Side parallax adjustment from 10 yards to 15, 25, 35, 50, 100, 200, and ∞. Illumination in either green or red, 5 steps of brightness each. It is a look-alike of the newer MTC Optisan EVX MH 10 reticle.
The HD line looks promising for higher quality, but the other scopes in the Discovery line-up also look interesting I think. Many are FFP reticles scopes.
There is a revealing vid about real grass roots "field" testing methods - see link below:
For want of a heli, let's say.........Or a .338 Lapua.
Also a chinese table top Karate comparative test method:
