Well ive saisfied my .17hmr (Nikon) and now i've got to put a new scope on my .22wmr.  I was looking at bushnells website and became quite interested in the banner series.  Im interested in the 6-18x50 or the 4-12x40.  Has anyone used either model or banner series in general?  Like my .17 i'd be using it for rabbit,squirrel,,,etc..Figured since i went fixed power on my .17 i'd pick one with some range this time, bought BSA sweet series 6-18x40 but um,,,,it sucked!

What are you using your .22 mag for? I have a 3.5-10x50 AO Leupold VariX-III on my .22wmr. I use it for night time coyote and coon hunting and feel as though I'm over scoped. It is big and changes the balance of the rifle. I would be just as well served by a trim 3-9x40.
If you are target shooting you would like the AO for pin point accuracy from 25-150 yards. If for critters like the .17 is being used, a 3-9 would work and you would have a variable to compliment your fixed scoped rimfire.
If you are wanting to stay in the $100 range the Banners are a good choice.

Well SWFA was out of the banner scopes so i compromised and bought a Simmons Pro Sport 4-12x50.  I've never had any problems with past Simmons i have owned but i have not had one in about 10 years.  Are their optics a step up or back from what they used to be?  Surely cant be anything close to BSA.

I think what Chris Farris has to say here sums it up pretty well. It seems that Simmons is on the up swing.
