Been shooting with open sights for years & now find my eyes have caught up with my age or visa/versa. I'm getting involved with rifle silhouette shooting & need an inexpensive scope. Up To $200 & prefer to stay at $100 - $150. 3-9 or 4-12 power. I've seen some with an adjustable objective. Is this feature beneficial?  I've looked at the Nikon Prostaff EFR rimfire *Competitor Reference REMOVED* & some others that are not rimfire specific. I prefer turrets that can be easily adj. by finger. Any other suggestions.
It will be mounted on a Savage MKII heavy barrel rifle I'm ordering this week.

Silhouette makes heavy demands on a scope, lot of adusting and zeros have to be perfect, targets are very small.  Most often seen are Leopolds but they are lot more expensive than the prices you mention. Lower price new Weaver Targets are the way to go.  Smallbore  sooner are later you are going to want at least 20 power.  Fellow at one of our matches sold a slightly used one last month for 200 bucks, That's about the going price for a good used Weaver
If going for less intital expense than a Weaver figure selling the scope off at a loss and buying a Weaver when you gain some experence.  Better to get something you can stick with from the start. Most .22 rifles are good enough for Silhouette only a few scopes are good enough. Put your money in glass
Have a look at for detailed silhouette advice
