    First off, I don't think you're going to find any sort of worthwhile first focal plane reticle scope for $250.00 or less, so it's not something to talk about in this context.

    As for other/second focal plane scopes, you're not looking at a whole lot of magnification at 50-100 yards for a 1" target- i.e. a 3-12x magnification would be fine, a 4-16x would also work, anything over that is a waste of time.

    As we're talking airguns, you would also want an adjustable objective or side parallax adjustment (side parallax is less of a pain to operate).

    As for budget, the best deal in that pricerange that is a name brand: http://scopesandammo.com/storefront/...parallax-p-979

    -anything better than that are you will be going over $300.00
    I'd say I care- but I'd probably be lying...
