I have looked at about everything available. I want a 3x9 with a mil dot or ballistic plex/bdc reticle. (no dial bdc).  I have found 3 scopes that would work, but none are set for 50 yd parralax. Does anyone have any suggestions - the 3 I was considering were a sightron SI 3x9 40mm mil dot ($150), nikon 3x9 prostaff from sample list at $119, and burris 3x9 full field II at $209 ( but comes with a gift).
 
There is a Tasco World Class Scope 3-9x 40mm Mil-Dot Reticle Matte that I think is 50 yds parralax, but I've gone through 3 scopes on this rifle so I want to get a bit better -
 
Any sugestions?

Can't figure how to edit ! I looked at

Burris 3-9x32 Compact Rimfire / Airgun Scope

 
but it's about out of my price range.

the only reticle I recall is the new one built by Mickey Fowlers company, the name escapes me -- I am sure someone here can recall it. But--- consider the problems , a BDC reticle must be geared to the zillons of 22 rds out there. a better solution --- I had leo put a target turret in a 3.5x10 front  AO vx3 to 40 yds, for just this purpose, then I'm not llimited to the brand or type of 22 used only the most accurate.

It's called the Rapid Reticle and has increments from 60-200 yards.
I would get a Leo and have them change the reticle if your budget allows. Maybe http://www.swfa.com/ can order one that way and save you the trouble.

the burris quad plex would actually work if it didnt have those weird tall windage/elevation knobs - 50 yd parralax w/ bdc type reticle, pretty much what I need, but overprised due to the complexity.. I don't actually need bdc exactly so much as mil dot or some type of ranging system to aim at longer distances, I shoot a supressed 22 s/ subsonic usually, so they drop a bit.
 
I called sightron and their 3x9 mil dot s1 scope is 100 yd parallax.
