 I have a leupold BRD 24p with dot i use for 22lr shooting. i can put that dot (i hate center dots) in a 22lr hole and shoot in the hole . i now want a 6-24 or a 8-32 so i can plink at the Low power. so want i am asking is the WIRE on the Bushnells FINE enough  to shoot in a hole at 50 Yards?  is the MILDOT center wire as fine in center as there duplex wire?  i take it there duplex is the same on the 8-32 as it is on there 6-24? . PS i would just buy the Leupold 8.5-25 Fine Duplex but just cant come up wuth the extra $300 this year. and i will SELL theLeupold 24 D matt to fund the new scope. thanks john

Prob the easiest thing to do would be to actually contact the company and ask them about the thickness they can actually give you a number.

Are you shooting in competition? IMO 24 and 32 is alot more than needed for 50 yard shooting.

No Bushnells make good scopes. I am saying  I would rather have 10x with great glass over a 20x with mediocre.

Ex. Me and a friend were shooting at 100 yards. He was using a Barska 14-12x50.  I was using a Ziess  with a 2.5-8x32.  He was coming over to look through my scope to see where he was hitting cause he couldn't see the holes through his.

What exactly is your budget?

It was a assembled in the great US of A. I have not looked through that model scope. Im sure some of other OT members will come by and give you a better comparison of glass.  Mine was a conquest and from my understanding the conquest was to compete with the VXII class. Althought I beleive I have heard people say that the conquest had better glass than the VXII.
oh yea Welcome to the OT
I would strongly recommend a Zeiss though, this might be an option http://swfa.com/Zeiss-45-14x44-Conquest-Rifle-Scope-P5409.aspx
Nikon and Vortex both have good glad for the money.
The SS10XHD is known for making grown men cry.

A leupold VX3 with a fine cross would sure suit all your needs also
 
The only thing is and its gonna be the same with the ziess and about any other side focus. The parralax on side focus is using only adjust down to a 50 yards, You want either adjustable objective or rear focus.
