Hello to all. I am finishing a 10/22 build that will only be used for paper target shooting at 50 and 100 yards. I need help with optic choices. I have a budget of around $500, but a happy to stay below that! I would like more than 9x power. Tried a 6-18x40 Nikon buckmaster but was not happy. I kept "losing" the picture as it would blackout if I moved at all. When I could see, the power range seemed nice. Simple reticle is preferred, happy to "click" for distance changes. Adjustable Objective is probably important as I live in Kansas and the 90+ heat may cause problems with mirage on a high power fixed scope (or maybe I am just reading too much into the mirage thing). I want to buy quality, but wonder at what level I would be paying for performance differences only noticible far beyond my 100 yard limit. Open to any and all suggestions. THANKS FOR YOU TIME AND YOUR OPINIONS!!!

Welcome to the OT!

For many years I used a SWFA SS 10X,it works fine down to 10yds.You might also look at the SS6x.The 10x can be purchased with a side Parralux also.Great scopes for under $400.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I heartily with Stick and his recommendation of the 10x SS. I would go with the rear focus, if it were me personally.

+2 on the 10x SS. And I would get the Mil-Quad Reticle.
