To mount on a Weatherby Mk XXII 22 LR, either 2-7x or 3-9x.  The rifle is used mainly to punch targets @ 50 YDS & the occasional varmint.  Thanks!

Welcome


Any of these. Kinda depends on what your preference is with the reticle, and if an adjustable objective and parralax set for 50 yards are important to you.

 or with a smaller objective.


Both of these are very good scopes for the money.

The Burris is on sale and a very good buy.


These are not dedicated rimfire scopes, but would all work. Before the purists come in and thump on me, I'll suggest this one.

Some of the guys that know a lot more than me can chime in and explain things better than me. I own a couple of Diamondbacks, and a Timberline and they are very good scopes for the money. They may not be an ideal fit for what you plan on doing, but they are as good as it gets inside your budget cap.

Vortex Diamondback 2-7x35 $179.95
                                 3-9x40 $189.95
 
Bushnell Elite 3200 2-7x32 $209.95
                               3-9x40 $199.95
 
Probably a 2-7 would be plenty for what your looking for.  The diamondback has fully multicoated lenses and a larger FOV, the bushnell has rainguard if you have those stubborn varmints that like to play in the rain.

I'd go with the Weaver rimfire, but since you're talking a $200+ budget, pop for the 3-9X AO model ($229.)  AO might come in handy; also, I have to look over my eyeglasses to focus a non-AO scope. You'd have to Spend 400 on the similar rimfire Leupold to find one that good. (Well, there is one brand equal to the Weaver for the same price, but I don't think SWFA sells it...)

about a year ago i bought a savage 22 mag.
ive had 4 or 5 scopes on it and havent been happy with any of them.
some were just too big for the rifle, and others were pretty much junk.
 for me finger turn adjustments are very desirable. especially if they can be reset on zero after sighting in.
the redfield revelution series has this feature.
i called the leupold factory as they now produce redfield, to inquire about the parralex setting.
i was told it is set at 150 yds. BUT, for $15 they will reset any leupold or redfield scope to whatever setting you want.
IN ADDITTION, they offered to sell me a redfield revelution 2x7x33mm scope direct for $129, plus the $15 parralex change to 50yds.
i gave them my credit card info. and ill have the scope in about 2 weeks.
so even if you have an old leupold, it can be reset for rimfire parralex settings.
