Default I need a good varmint scope

I am going to be buying a new varmint rifle and I need a new scope for it. I am looking for a higher-end scope for long ranges with about 8-25 power. Do you have any suggestions?

Here's a decent one that won't break the bank: Sightron SIII 6-24 X 50

A scope that might work well is the Bushnell Elite 6-24 x 40 mm. Lots of guy like the Bushnell Elite series. I have a Weaver Grand Slam 6-20 x 40 mm and find it has excellent optics and has 1/8” MOA adjustment except it doesn’t have the higher power as per your request. Good luck...

If your looking lower end I went with a 6x24x40 AOTasco. It sits on my 22-250. I have made shots out to 650 yards and has never given me any problems.I am not a big Tasco fan but got a good price and it does do the job.

The elite 4200 is a good scope for the money.
