A scope in a standard range has to be selected and it is currently 3-9, it is quite standard for shooting. Each of the features just like magnification, objective lens dimension, parallax and adjustable lens and other adjustments are a crucial part in selecting a rifle scope.

Discussing about the magnification, it has been said that in order to be more accurate it is necessary to increase the magnification. Also, there is a particular extent to increase the accuracy which further depends on mirage, vibration and field of view (that how to much to increase). All these three factors are affected while shooting and it completely depends upon the person what all the adjustments are to be made accordingly.
To make the target more bright, the diameter of the front objective lens can be increased through which it collects more light. You can choose to make a shoot in the early morning as after sunset it would be quite difficult to adjust the light and increase the diameter of the lens. It should always be kept in mind that if the other lenses are of standard quality then only the large objective lens would benefit. 40 mm of diameter lens is the standard one for target shooting as well as hunting.

Parallax, another part of riflescope, is basically a difference in the position of a particular object that is viewed from two different sights. Talking about the adjustable lens, they help in either eliminating or lessen the parallax. If you are carrying a magnification of 10X you would either face a problem or not but you are surely benefitted if you are having a one for 12X.
