Hi Guys,
New member here. I found this site while researching what scope to buy. My club does informal 22 targets shoots at 50 and 100 yards.
I have a Mossberg 144 LSB that I will be using.
I’m trying to decide which power scope would be enough to see both targets at 50-100 yards with these 60 year old eyes.
I would like to have one with a adjustable AO.
I have been looking at the Weavers V series, the 16x and 24X. I have also read some good things about  the SWFA SS 10X42. What do you guys think?

Thanks,

strangms

Sorry guys the title should read 50-100 yards. I couldn't find out how to edit the post.

Welcome to the OT!
Can you tell us max you want to spend.The AO will limit what you choose but the Weaver is a good choice!I have a 10x SWFA on one of my .22's & it has done very well by me out to 300yds.Remember it doesn't have AO but I can focus down to 10yds.

If this is benchrest only and you would not be using the scope in low light or for hunting I would use the Super Sniper 20x or the 16x .  If you will use it hunting I would use the 6x SS or a Leupold Competition Target FX3  6x42

Urimaginaryfrnd,

This will  be for benchrest only. How does the Mil-Dot reticle do with targets?

 So all the reading that I have done here, most people really like the SWFA SS  scopes.
I guessing that the SS and the Weaver V series in 16 and 24 are all good scopes?

I would lean towards the SS MRAD reticle over the Mil-Dot reticle.

And here is a link to all the SS reticles.

Stangms,

In my opinion the reticle lines on the Super Sniper are too thick for bench rest shooting and the mil dots become a distraction for trying to get a good group. I myself like the highest magnification scope that I can get for the distances that you are shooting. If the heavy reticle lines are OK with you then the super sniper line offers a good choise.

Regards,
dsr
