The 10x is the best all around choice. 10x is about the highest power you have any chance of hitting a moving deer without a rest.  If you were shooting off a rest at a deer standing still they will all work, but the typical hunting scope is a 3-9 variable although I much prefer a 4.5-14 over the 3-9. People have been shooting M1 Garands with open sights at 1000 meters for a long time so the truth is you do not have to have extremely high power, but there are advantages of having high power if you are trying to compare the racks on two different deer at 500 yds with a 10x you can see and easily kill the deer but being able to tell which deer has horns at 500 yds right before dark you will want more power. The down side of more power is that you need a larger objective lens on the front to gather more light. It's a vicious circle. For all around hunting do not buy a fixed power higher than 10x, and a lot of people will say buy a 6x42 fixed power for hunting. You may want to take a scope that will go to 10x and look through it then compare a scope set at 6x and see how differently they handle. IOR Tactical 6x42 is a consideration as it the 10x SS. 
While I love the 10x SS as a tactical scope - I really think that a 4.5-14  is my favorite hunting scope. Depending on your price range there are several good ones with features like special reticles that make them very user friendly.

Now having said that I will mention that I have hunted with my 20x Super Sniper so it can be done and it's guaranteed to intimidate the other hunters.

I would prefer a 3-14x or 3-16x if possible. The SS variable sounds good.

You could send me a thousand dollars and Id send you one, or you could just order direct from SWFA (the only source) on line  http://www.riflescopes.com/departments/231/rifle_scopes/supe r_sniper_rifle_scopes.htm

 I'll bet you can get an Romainan  IOR over there, the Tactical 6x42 is a good choice.

TPMan,

 

You just need someone that can import it for you. Get in contact with:

The Sportsman's Gun Centre

7 Dartmouth Road

Paignton, Devon  England  TQM AB

 

They should be able to to work with SWFA and get one for you. They already stock the proper Warne rings for it.
