Default Swfa ss 16x

Hey guys,
im really in a pickle here. I need to upgrade my nikon prostaff 4-12x40 Ive made a list of the most important things i want in it.
Low-minimum power
Matching turrets reticle
Im looking at the swfa 16 power. Im going to use this for rimfire benchrest and squirrel hunting. I just want your guys opinion for this. Oh yeah, and it has to be under 400. I would love you guys help with this. Would you use a fixed 16 power for squirrels?

Trying to find the crosshairs at 25yds in early morning will be quite the challenge, most would prolly say a good 3-9x40 is plenty for a rimfire but if your doing mostly bench work id say the 4-12 is about perfect.
