i'm looking for a new scope for my mkII. currently running a weaver 4-16 target dot, which is nice... but a) the target dot is TINY and unuseable come dusk and b.) i want a mildot with exposed turrets to practice with.

i have an SWFA SS 3-9 on my 308. ideally i would want something with similar (or slightly more) magnification and MIL adjustments for practicing LR with the 22... but i know thats probably not going to happen... hell, i'd put another 3-9 SS on it if it focused down to 25M but the one i have on my 308 wont.

im ok with shelling out some cash i mean hell... i shoot the 22 WAY more than the 308 so why not?

interested to see what shows up...

thanks!!

Not a variable, bit i know the standard 10x42 S.S. focus all the way down to 10m. I believe the same is also true for the 16x and the 20x, but I am not sure about those as I don't own them. The only problem is as far as a practice tool, these scopes have M.O.A. turrets, instead of .1mil adjustments. But they will get you turning knobs and doping wind!

What is your budget? This Vortex goes down to 10yds and has target knobs (MOA adj) with a mil dot.

If a fixed would work for you there is a 10xHD SS on the sample list and that is Mildot/mrad. And I think that goes down to 10yds. But I would check with SWFA.

hrm.  i'll have to check those out.

ideally i want something durable as on my field rifle since i'll be essentially mimicing my actions with the 22.  and again... IDEALLY i want a variable. 

im gonna say my budget probably tops out at $400 or so.  the SS HD is a little rich for my blood right now.  ;)  the regular... perhaps.  my only worry is that 10x is pretty high for close shots on tree rats.  i'll have to throw my weaver on 10x for a bit and see how it does.
