Nikon Prostaff 2-7x32 or 3-9x42, Sightron SII 3-9x42.  One of my 10/22s has a Nikon Buckmaster 4x40.  Works well for me.

For target use use with a stock 10/22 the minimum that I suggest is a 3-9x with a way to adjust for parallax (AO or side focus). Parallax is a big deal at rimfire ranges. If it's a heavily modified 10/22 then it's not unusual install something with up to 24x of magnification to take advantage of a custom's tack driving accuracy.

Weaver's RV9 3-9x32 w/AO is a good quality little scope that is physically small enough to look good on a 10/22.

Mueller's Chinese made APV is a very popular entry price point scope with new rimfire shooters. I haven't looked through the APV but their reputation is for decent optics and so-so (not always repeatable) mechanicals. Chuck Hawks has a review on the pay side of his site.

I've been experimenting with a Simmons Prohunter in 6-24x44 similar to the 6-21x listed below. The optics are decent for the range and I've been surprisingly happy with it. The jury is still out on durability but while I wouldn't want to rely on one for a centerfire hunting rifle I suspect that it will do just fine for on rimfire target rifle. However in my opinion the now Chinese made Simmons just isn't in the same league as the L.O.W. built Weavers.

Just beyond your price range are Weaver's V16 and V24. A V24 with a Varment-Plex reticle is my favorite scope for my heavily modified 10/22s. Very good optics and repeatable controls. These are very popular with rimfire shooters, and the Varmint-Plex reticle with its 1/8th MOA dot might just be the perfect reticle for 50-100yd target shooting.

SWFA sells a Bushnell Rimfire scope in 3X9X40 for about $40. I've been using it for two years on crows, squirrels, and raccoons. Holds its zero and works well. Great value.

A nice 3-9 x40 Sightron S1 is a good scope or step up to the S2.My 10/22 has that on and you can clearly see the holes at 75 yards.It works well at the range and hunting.
