   I'm new to this site & also kind of new to this type of shooting.  I have a real nice Ruger 22-250 & out of ignorance I bought the scope the salesman suggested.  Since then I've learned a little but there is room up there for a lot more knowlege.  I am looking for a good scope that can sight in from a couple of hundred feet to several hundred yards.  If I can't see it I cant hit it.  On my Ruger 10/22 I have a Leupold VX 6.5X18 with the Target Dot.  I was very impressed with that scope so now I've looked at a VX-III 8.5-25x50mm Long Range Target & another that I think just said a Compitition Scope.  Both were close to $1000.  Can someone help me make this decision?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Big smile

 

Thank you,

Fred

Fred I've got two 22-250 long range varminters..........one has a 4200 elite 4x16x40 AO and the other a conquest 4.5x14x44 AO. Both scopes are excellant preformers and have met my needs perfectly. Roughly 1/2 or more of the money you are looking to spend. Just a suggestion......

If you want good glass I would stay away from Leupold, the 4200 and the conquest easily being better.  Both are good recommendations.

A conquest with target knobs or a rapid-z would work well here. Very nice scopes. And of course everyone loves the elite 4200's, except I can't recommend one having never owned one. Must be very good glass, as I've never heard anything bad about them from educated posters. Just love my conquest, and the rapid-z is excellent.

Good luck with your new rig.
