Own two Bushnell banner scopes. One I bought in mid 1960s and another I bought about 4 years ago. Prefer the old Japanese made one. Newer one is a variable to 18 power. I own a fair number of low priced higher power scopes for my target shooting and like my Banner the least. For me, I just dislike the clarity of the optics in my Banner.
I'd buy a BSA Majestic DX Hunter in power range you want. Have three of the 6-24x44 majestics, mounted on .223 to to 308 rifles. Nice optics, a side focus variable, turrets and adjustments are good. Quite a few rounds have been fired with them mounted on my rifles and no problems with any of them to report. Grafs and Sons has the BSA Majestics on sale. Think the 4-16x44 is under $90 dollars. Others sell the scope for around $140.
Yea its a BSA, but one of their newer models and its a pretty decent scope for the price.
