Greetings from across the pond.

I'm a newbie to all this and need your help.I've customed a 10/22 (Barracuda stock,Volquatsen carbon fibre barrel )and I'm looking for a scope.I shoot anywhere between 10 - 50 yards.Sometimes practical target (changing distances)I've got a list and would welcome any advice.

BUSHNELL ELITE 4200  4-14x50

WEAVER GRAND SLAM  4.5-14x40

NIKON MONARCH  4-12x40

LEUPOLD VX 11  6-18x40.

I have a budget of around £200 ($400) but could raise it if it made a big difference.

A minor consideration is that i would like to have a choice of black or silver finish but that is not crucial.

Thanks for your help.

Great forum.This is where i did my homework.

Welcome to the OT, Cousin.

 

So, your shooting from 10-50 yards and occasional target shooting??

 

How far out are you going to be shooting? Maximum distance??

 

I'm liking the 4-12 Monarch on your list, but could use a little more intel from you please.

Good morning Cheaptrick.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

The maximum distance is probably never going to be more than 50 yards.The range i shoot at is 25 yards standing or seated.When we have a practical target competition the distance can get down to 10 yards.So to have a scope that can adjust the parrallax down to 10 yards would be a big bonus.

Which rules out some on my list.The others i haven't found out about yet.

I reckon the Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40 is worth a look.

Hi NELLY, I shoot 22lr a good bit at close range and like to use scopes that will adjust down to 10 meters. My choice is the Elite 4200 Series and the Weaver Clasic Rimfire series. I like the Elite 4200 4-16x40mm and the Weaver Classic Rimfire 3-9x32mm. They both will adjust parallax free down to at least 10 meters.

They both have fully multi-coated lens. Weaver also has a fixed 15 power with 42mm objective that will also adjust down to 10 meters and has fully multi-coated lens. I've used the fixed 15 Weaver "aka KT15" for target shooting and it works great. The Elite 3200 Series will adjust down to 10 meters too but has multi-coated lens rather than the fully multi-coated lens. And if money is no object Leupold has their EFR Series to check out, and Burris has their R/A Series "Rimfire/Air Rifle"

As for your problem try Burris Signature Rings with Off-set inserts.
