I was looking at a Buck Gold 2.5x10  50mm. Can anyone shed some light on the quality of these scopes. I know they're a Bushnell product now, but don't know much about them. Thanks.

I don't know about the buck gold, but I had a buck silver that I wish I hadn't purchased.  It was much less clear than the Fullfield II that I replaced it with.

Bushnell bought Millet about a year or so ago and they are still manufacturing these scopes. I had an outstanding Millet Buck Gold irrepairably damaged by an airline. I loved that scope. I sent it to Bushnell to see if they could do anything. Unfortunately, it couldn't be repaired but they gave me a great price on a replacement. I use that 6-24x56 scope on my .223 Bushmaster. It has been fine in its price range (around $400). The resolution and contrast are not as good as a Leupold VX3 but are just fine for shooting targets and prairie dogs at 500-1000 yards. My old scope shot .25 inch groups at 100 yards on that rifle, the new one shoots .35 and has a little more paralax. I have to adjust the paralax carefully with this scope because point of impact and focus changes noticeably as you traverse 300 yards, 400 yards and so on. I can hunt with it just fine though using a 300 yard focus but it could be more clear. It is heavy too. That being said, I enjoy the scope and find that it has great features and usefulness for the price.

In the lower magnification you are considering, it should be fine as long as you are happy with the weight. No doubt there are better scopes out there but you should be able to hunt effectively with it. I haven't used the Fulfield II but suspect it would be superior.
