OK, guys and gals. I need a new scope for my new CZ USA 453 varmint. I will just be trying to shoot paper from 50 to 100 yards. I am an old man and need all the help that is available.  Thanks. Smoke

Or you could take the 2-10 but I though you might enjoy the parralax adjustment on this on and the range. I do not own one of these but I do own the ZA3 in 3-9 x40 and it is the scope I enjoy the most. I like it better than my Conquest and even better than my Kahles for what I am doing with it.

JL thanks for the information, I just finished reviewing the website and this sounds like a great scope. I am unfamiler with this paticular name brand, however, I think it is German made so I am sure it would be a quality piece.

What type of budget are you looking at?  That will help us make recommendations.

I don't know much about scopes, however, I have heard that the glass should cost about the same as the rifle.  The cz 453 is about a $500.00 dollar piece new. So most likley a $500.00 scope.

My thoughts are that you need enough magnification to spot bullet holes at 100 yds - probably 10X, parallax or focus adjustment to enable use at 50 and 100 yds. Resettable target adjustments to enable both 50 and 100 yds zeros would help.
There are a huge variety of scopes out there that would do this. A great majority of the variable power scopes are parallax set for 100 yds for hunting purposes and at ranges of 50 yds or so when set at their higher powers will not be focused.

The Leupold 3-9X33 AR rimfire EFR would be as close to perfect as possible. Weaver also makes a variable power parallax adjustable rim fire that costs less.

If you are ok with max 9 power, if you had a spotting scope to see the holes, check out this:
 
 
Havent used one myself, but have seen it suggested before.  I would have got one but I found a elite 4200 3-9 for 150 bucks.

The Leupolds are normaly very rugged, but also have thier down sides.  Like poor glass and a more narrow field of view.  They do not have as clear of glass.  The AO is overated in a .22 unless you have club matches that will need it. 
 
The rule of thumb is that the longer range the more clear of a scope you need.  The next rule of thumb is that the more magnification you need, the more clear of a scope you need.  A high magnification scope that is not clear is like using a muddy magnifing glass.
 
The Zeiss Conquest or the Minox have some interesting scopes for the price range you mentioned.  They do not have all the bells and whistles, but they have extra clear glass.

It depends on how serious a paper pucher you want to be. I have shot rimfire bench rest matches for about 7 years. Shooting targets at 50 yards I used a 45 power Leupold competition scope with fine cross hairs. There were still a few people shooting 36 power Leupold and Weavers. But the majority moved on up.  2 good websites to learn are Benchrest Central and Rimfire Central.

This old man uses a Mueller 4-14x44 for 22,I've owned many scopes Burris,Leupold,Redfield,Nikon
concerning clarity the Muller APV is perfect the only down side IMO is the crosshair is little heavier then I  prefer but I still shoot one hole groups with my 10/22 custom and they can be had for $129.

Thanks to everyone for all the help in my scope search. I have decided to go with the Leupold. I will post the results when it arrives and I get to shoot this gun with no sights. Thanks again.

I have a 3.5-10x50 Leupold EFR and I think you will be very happy with your choice. I use mine for target and hunting and the glass is pretty good. Reliability has been a non-issue.

Pay more for a Leupold but no worries about service. In good light I can make out .22 bullet holes at 100 yds with a 9x. An adjustable objective parallax adjustment or focusing should get you tuned in at 50 yds at 9x. Many rimfire scopes are adjusted for either 50 or 60 yds and when they are used there is some side to side movement at 100 yds. Depends on how fussy you are.
