I kinda narrowed it down to a 2x-7x35 or a 3x-9x40 burris ballistic plex and I am wandering if this is too much scope.  All I want is to zero at 50 yds and first line 75yds and second line 100yds.  also............do the lines below center appear no matter what power I set the scope on?   O yea.........this is for a 10/22 ruger....just plinken and paper....no hunting.       Thanks for looking..........JOE

Are these two scopes you've selected from the Fullfield II or Short Mag lines? 

 

To answer your question about the Ballistic Ples, yes, the lines appear all the time at any power.  This is a second focal plane reticle, meaning it always stays the same apparent size regardless of magnification.

 

As for your application on a 10/22, keep in mind these scopes are intended for centerfire use, meaning that they are parallax focused for 100 yards.  On a rimfire, centerfire scopes aren't the best choice if you intend to have both the reticle and the target image focused on the same plane at typical rimfire shooting distances.  You really need either a 50-yd parallax rimfire scope, or a scope with adjustable objective that adjusts down to 25 or 50 yards.  The only scope in the Burris line that has both the Ballistic Plex and a 50-yard parallax adjustment is the 4.5-14X Short Mag.  I have this scope, and it's o.k. for the rifle it's mounted on, but it has some serious optical problems, namely that the eye relief is extremely critical, so it doesn't allow very much fore and aft head placement from the nominal ER distance.  It also has some pretty noticeable image distortion from center to edge of the FOV.

It was suggested that I try the 2x-7x35mm shotgun/muzzleloader bal-plex as it would be a short distance parallax....down to 70yds I think.  Perhaps I should just go ahead and get a rimfire scope and be done with it.  I was really liking the idea of ballistic plex but maybe totally rimfire scopes would ease the headaches....hehehe.  I currently have a red dot mounted on the 10/22 and I wanted to tighten up the groups a tad more but boy o boy what a lot of choices.   anyhey   thanks for the info.................JOE

I forgot about the 2-7X35 shotgun/muzzleloader model with ballistic plex.  That would be a good candidate for rimfire use.  I actually think it's parallax adjusted to 50 yds, but I could be wrong.  It's definitely not adjusted for 100 yds.
