I haven't seen any so was wondering if there are any higher power only variable scopes? Say something like 12-24x or 15-30x.  I have found that once I initially sight in I never use the the lower half of the variable range on my 6-20 and 6-24 scopes. It would seem like a scope with better clarity and brightness could be made for the same or lower cost if one only had the internals for 2 times zoom instead of four or even five on recent scopes.

Not for everyone I know, but for mostly longer range target shooting it would seem useful.

March makes an 8-80.

A few make a 10-50.

Other than that I don't know of any 12-24x, 12-36, 12-48, 12-60, 12-72 or 10-20,10-30, or 15-30,15-45,

That gets to be close to wanting to mount a spotting scope on a rifle.
