what distance will you be shooting??? for 17HMR's, i like somehting along the lines of a FF2 4.5-14x42 becuase it is adjustable for parallax, has the ballistic plex reticle, and a free spotter.

I would recommend the Burris Ballistic Plex reticle as it can easily be used for .17 bullet drop.

 

The Burris Ballistic Plex reticle was designed to work with just about any caliber and comes with detailed instructions and decals, that depict what the lines represent for different calibers, that you can stick on your rifle stock.  Here is what the hold overs work out to be for .17 Hornady Magnum 17 grain Hornady VMax bullet moving at 2550 feet per second.

As you can see it is very simple to shoot any where from 100 - 300 yards with this reticle.  The Burris Ballistic Plex reticle is available in several scopes.

  1. 2-7x36 Matte Finish, Short Mag for $259.95
  2. 3-9x32 Matte Finish, Compact for $269.95
  3. 3-9x32 Matte Finish, Quad Knobs, Compact for $266.95
  4. 3-9x32 Matte Finish, Short Mag for $269.95
