Mirage is going to be hell with the 20x.
You may be happier with a SS 16x or a 4-16x variable.

The Sightron 20x looks darn good but tryin to stay in a budget so 549 is doable...much above that and well its just outta budget. Went thru a divorce and well if u ever have nuff said. you guys think its going to be a lot better than a SS? specs appear darn close but optics i am sure are better but in good light am i gonna see a big difference?

So does Bushnell really make these scopes for SWFA? So are they really better than similar priced Bushnell options? Or are they just so highly recommended because this forum is run by SWFA?

Definition for "reticle subtension" : Most commonly expressed in inches per 100 yards, reticle subtension is the amount of the target covered by the reticle. This known amount of coverage by the reticle can be compared against the size of an object in the scope's image, and be used to estimate the range of the object.  
        thats why i took back a conquest 4x14x50 or what ever it was.the cross hairs were just to wide for me to target shoot.every time i got back on target i was saying,was i here or up here a little.and i was useing a 1 inch red dot,any ways this night force bench rest i have cured that subtension problem.that conquest would be ok for hunting.but not for shooting hole inside hole.
