Need more than a 9 mag 40mm is just fine as is a 1 inch tube. Plain jane plex with no bells and whistles as well as an "in" country warranty customer service. For hunting only- no paper punching target time.

There you go.  Also, welcome to the forum.

For $50 more you can really get over 9x, and with great glass.  Plus, I love the Zeiss #4 reticle, especially for low light hunting:

And by the way, don't be afraid of SWFA's sample list. Demo-B items are near flawless. I have bought the 4.5-14x50 w/hunting turrets as a demo-B and it's perfect. The glass is so much better than my viper HS that at 14x, I can see holes on my 100yd zero target better than the vortex at 16x I bought brand new. I would guess that the 10x version will do everything you need out to 3-400 yds and then some. Good luck.

Looks nice but will break the ol' fixed income budget. Is that a "seconds" scope or something? Anything else?

The first one is in your budget and anything else in your price range would be a step down IMO. Also they are not seconds. Click on the link and they discuss what the classifications mean. I would not hesitate to purchase one if I was in the market for a scope that was on the sample list.

Pretty much sh** out of luck if I want something around 14mag?

What kind of scope(s) have you been using? I find that better glass is way better than more magnification in a cheaper scope with poorer quality glass. The Zeiss has very nice glass especially for the money and is something that you would never have to upgrade.

I bought the Vortex 4-16x44 HS once and liked most things about it, however if your main reason for needing more magnification is poor eyes, then I would tend to steer you away from it due to the thin reticle. I had a really hard time seeing it at low light.
 
I know it is over your stated budget,  but I settled on the Ziess 4.5-14x44 conquest with the rapid Z-800 reticle. I can't say enough good things about this scope. I purchased it as a Demo-b with no complaints.
 
My dad had this one:
Leupold 3.5-10x40 VX-3 Riflescope Duplex Leupold 3.5-10x40 VX-3 Riflescope
Stock # - LEU66125
  • Gloss
  • Duplex
  • 1"
  • Xtended Twilight Lens System
$479.95 < id=ctl00_wpm_CategoryGrid_ctl04_ProductList_ctl02_Price_VS value=Te7R8kGTFijX+4dGlYFbzYDRJ2PJovW9eml9VLR3PkCWNdEdbSYmpRWBmXfUIzmX = name=ctl00$wpm$CategoryGrid$ctl04$ProductList$ctl02$Price$VS>
 
I know there are those on here who think Leupolds are overprised, but it is under budget and I have used it in low light and the reticle shows up well. Leupold also has good customer service.
 
Here's another one:
Sightron 3-12x42 SII Big Sky Riflescope Plex Sightron 3-12x42 SII Big Sky Riflescope
Stock # - SIIB31242
  • Matte
  • Plex
  • 1"
  • Mail-In $75 Rebate
$542.95 < id=ctl00_wpm_CategoryGrid_ctl04_ProductList_ctl06_Price_VS value=gAYmFtwMBHcQSV5RQMyzxfeU1iTuBqOXZevrh/jPiBF2yW+y3V9AL7C0U6Ioj1VF = name=ctl00$wpm$CategoryGrid$ctl04$ProductList$ctl06$Price$VS>
Actually, the rebate is $100. Check out the Sightron website to double check (UPC# 793139-630094). I have used several Sightrons, I have two SII's and have been satisfied. The Big Sky is a set up from them. This would be my #1 choice so far.
 
Good Luck
