What would you define as a high end scope?  I recommended the SWFA line but that won't work for you since they don't ship internationally.

What kind of rifle are you using?

I use fac hw100 PCP.
I want to shoot paper targets / birds at distances up to 100 yards.
but the distance could be a variation on 40,50,60 ... to 100yards.
I want to easily define a target point on the scope.
FFP can make it easier?

Okay, you are talking about Weirauch air gun rifle.

Not going to be much here, but have heard goods things about Hawke and Nikko for airguns.  Since it is a PCP air gun, you can use conventional rifle scopes (as I  understand it) since you don't have to deal with the forward recoil you have on spring air guns.

With my rimfire scopes, I don't have a need to go above 12X and my target is 3/8" diameter circle.
