If its goin on a muzzleloader then a fixed 4x would be fine.
Nikon, Leupold, Bushnell and even tasco are good brands.

If I was making your choice. First I would have to know what gun and caliber. Wheather for longrange shots or close in shots.

Generally the larger 45,50,60mm scopes will gather more light than the 20,30 and 40mm scopes. Coating of lens will make a difference. Check eye releaf, a big gun, you may want as much
eye releaf as possible. The larger the scope say a 60mm you
will have to mount it higher than a 40mm scope. The higher
the scope, the more chance you have a canting the gun when shooting. As your eyes get older they donot gather as much
light as when young. The more light that is transmitted
through the scope will help at dust and dawn.

As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Spend as much
for a scope as you can, most of the time, more than you pay for
the gun it is on.

For some people, myself included, some cheap scopes work very
well. Most of the time you will have to spend a good bit more
money.

My choice Zeiss. There are alot of good ones out there.

When you go to buy, don't check it out in the store, go out side
late in the evening and see how well you can see between diferent scopes.

Just a few thoughts, hope it helps.
