Hello, new member here looking for a quality scope for a newly ordered Cooper 17AH.  Excited to receive my Cooper soon!

I will be using the Cooper for smaller game - crow, squirrel, fox, rabbit, etc.  and would like a recommendation on a nice scope/reticle combination.

I'm interested in a fixed 12x scope, but wondered if my smaller game will be large enough while glassing at 150 - 200 yards.

The accuracy has the potential to be laser like and I don't want to do the rifle and my reloading a disservice by just getting the cross hairs close.

Thanks for any input, especially from those that shoot the 17 cals.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

Wow...A Cooper! Awesome rifles. 

My .17 HMR wore a 2-7x Weaver.

12x at 200 yards will make game appear to be 16 yards away

If you want to get a fixed scope, make it a 4x or a 6x max for a .17 that is

enough for this rifle.  They are a short distance rifle, but you should know that. Wink

I've had the weekend to dig a little deeper on a nice scope to mount on the Cooper 17AH rifle and I've listed some potentials.

Again, this rifle will be used for smaller game (crow, fox, squirrel, rabbit) that will range from 50 to under 200 yards.

Positive and negative feedback on these are welcomed.  The feedback I'm looking for is really in terms of scope magnification married to the 17AH caliber.  Quality feedback is fine too, but prior to quality, I'd like to match the right scope to this caliber.
