Looking for advice on a scope for a 22lr
« on: January 21, 2018, 09:26:19 PM »
Hi all. I just picked up a Ruger Precision Rimfire (I understand the oxymoron there, but I wanted it anyway). I am curious what the rimfire shooters out there like for optics. I mainly run Vortex on my other rifles, and will more than likely stick with that, but I am curious if you guys like higher magnification scopes, and what reticle you prefer. I'm not sure if there is much point in a reticle with MOA hash marks? Thanks in advance for the input!

Nikon Prostaff EFR is what I run on my tactical solutions .22lr and that thing is a tack driver. I highly recommend it!!  Worth checking out at least.

I have a Mueller Optics scope on my 10/22. I like it a lot.

I have a Vortex Crossfire 2 in 6◊18◊44 AO on my CZ Precision and .17HMR have no complaints . The Muellers Jackalope has are also great scopes for the $.

Thanks, that's what I was hoping for. Do you like the 6x18? I am trying to decide what magnification to run, and also what reticle. With that small bullet, I would imagine I am going to want more magnification. Do you guys like a standard duplex reticle? Is there a point in running a MOA reticle for rimfire? I am more of a centerfire shooter, so this is my entry to the world of rimfire.................

Personally with usually a max range of 100 or so yards, Iím a fan of lower power scopes on .22ís. Donít need the big magnification to shoot under 100 yards.  Mine is a 3-10x44. Scopes are different for everybody though. Usually when Iím target shooting I have my spotting scope with me.

The 6◊18 is nice to have  . I was using 4x12's before these .  Even at 18 it's hard to see a .22 hole @ 100yrds ( unless your using the shoot and see targets).

I have two of the USA made Redfield Revolutions on my 22's and they are great scopes for the money.  I prefer 3-9 and under for 22 simply because shots will be under 100yards.

Huntin buddy uses a 3x9 Nikon and tells me I need to upgrade. I can still head shoot grouse with a 2.5 weaver. If it works why fix it.  :dunno:

Nikon just released today a P-Tactical Rimfire scope.Pretty cool. 2-7x32 and either a hash marked MOA or BDC 150 reticle. I also a fan of the Target EFR because of the parallax adjustment and 3-9 magnification.

I have the 2-7X32 Nikon P-22 with the Nikoplex reticle. I think they're selling for about $180. Plenty of scope for my 22. Not a huge fan of the reticle but it's a decent scope. It says it's ballistically matched for 22 LR rimfire rifles.
