I have been searching around for a scope.  I have an ar-15 and a ruger 10/22.
 
I am looking for something in the 200-300 or so range as just for targets at the range no competition and all that.
 
Originally I was going with the Bushnell Elite 3200 10X fixed,  As cheap and good reviews but am not sure if I should go with a fixed scope.
 
Then I thought I found what I wanted,  the Mueller Tactical 2  3-9X Variable but of course its discontinued.
 
Is there anything out there thats comparable with the Tac 2 in that price range?   Or point me in a direction as I just feel lost again.
 
Also Do you guys like fixed or variable scopes.  Not sure whats better as these are my first rifles and never had a scope on them.  I would just go with the bushnell but am not sure if I would kick myself afterwards.  
 
I mean im getting it to try hitting distant targets.  Plan on using Quick-Disconnect mounts  as I like using the Iron sights and plan on getting a Red Dot so not like I need the scope to be versatile in its range capability as I can easily remove it.

If it is going on a rimfire, you should be looking at a scope where the parallax can be adjusted for close in targets or is preset that way so the fixed power Bushnell will not be a very good option for you.

I would suggest you give up on the reddot and get a decent variable scope.

Something like this maybe:

For the AR-15, you have more options since there is a number of decent 4=9x40 or similar scopes out there.

Looking at Mueller scopes,  they seem to have good reviews but not sure if they are something worth looking at or not.

The Mueller APV 4-14x40 is excellent for the price and would work on the AR or 10/22, super clear
edge to edge, has a 4plex reticle. If you do go with Mueller buy from an authorized dealer due to
warranty.

You may or may not be interested in a higher power scope, but I just got one of the simmons white tail classics (6.5-20x50 AO) that are on sale for $109.99 . I am amazed at the clarity, sharpness, light , and eye relief. In fact, I also just bought a leupy vx3 3-9x40 with the $80 rebate. I had both rifles on the range yesterday afternoon LATE.  With both scopes on 9x I could actually see the bullet holes in the targets(targetz online) BETTER with the simmons than the leupy. I could not believe it. It seemed to be just as bright as well. It was about 8:30 in the evening !  I may not have the eyepiece focused just right on the leupy, cause my eyes were getting tired from zeroing the two rifles. I'm hoping/EXPECTING the leupy to do MUCH better.

For just a hair over $300 (plus rings & mounts) you could give each rifle its own dedicated scope. For the AR15 I like these three. It's hard to beat the optical quality for the buck:

Stock # - 849400
  • Matte
  • Dual-X
  • 1"
$169.95

For casual target shooting and rabbit hunting this is a great choice for the 10/22:
