I recently bought a Ruger 10/.22 and I was wondering if anyone had any advice as to what the best scope is for around $70.  Thanks

I wouldn't say there is a "best" of anything at that price, but this one will meet your price point:

 I have a Sweet 22 on my 10/22, have had it for some time, and it has not failed.   I don't really recommend the BSA's, but there are some that seem to hold up well.  It's cheap...

I've seen some Bushnell Banners hold up quite well on highpowers over the years.

The BSA has BDC, which has worked really well, for me, as well as mil-dot reticle.  Pluses in my book.  But, the Banner is a pretty good little scope.  Nothing to ignore in the choice...

Add the Tasco world class to the list. Cheap but pretty reliable.

The parallax will likely be set for a high power with the Trophy but the Nikon is designed for rimfire and should be excellent.

I would hit ebay up for an old Redfield tracker....I can't imagineanyone making a decent scope for under $200, let alone $100.

Centerpoint is a good scope for under $70.00 mil-dot illuminated reticle, includes scope covers batteries and rings.Clear optics I would rate it as good as the Vortex Crossfire.My scope is on a Ruger 10/22 and is rated to handle the recoil of a 416 Rigby magnum...not bad for under $70 bucks.SWFA would honor the competitions price.

Seeing as martinclaybold's post contained nothing but competitor advertisement (and even that for an impressively crappy scope), I deleted it.

I have a few of the Simmon Mag 22s and have been happy with them... I do think the newer ones aren't quite as good as the older ones though.
