I have a .22 rifle that I am wanting to scope.  I use it for plinking, informal target shooting, and a touch of hunting. 

Given that, what magnification do you think would be best?  I'm not looking to break the bank, I am thinking more bang for your buck.  Given that, would something in the 100-150 range be significantly better than the Simmons 22 mag 3-9X40 scope i see recommended quite frequently (it appears to be around $40)

Thanks.

The vortex viper 2-7 is slightly over budget but well worth spending the extra few bucks on.

 Yep.  Put one on my SIL's M94/22mag.  GOOD optics.
