I bought a 22-250, 6-8 yrs ago.  Put in safe,,never shot it. Did not pay much attn to scope as I am not a Tasco fan. I got it out the other day,, figured to slap a 4200 elite on it and go hunting. Well,,my boy played with the riflr and wants it.  He says he wants to keep the scope on it.  Can you guys tell me what it is and if it is worth leaving on rifle,, or pitch it now.

Tasco  4-16x40   It is AO front adjustable,,marked from 50 ft(feet) to 300yd and infinity,,,but the ring will go 2 turns!!!  It also has a strange (to me) table on the power ring which lists yardage(or numbers) in the spinning ring,  and animals like mule deer, elk,white tail, down to rabbit and coyote on the non-turning part.  The reticle has a second, lighter, horizonal line under main crosshair. The elevation turrent is marked from 100 to 500 and is resetable.

Is it junk scope  that will cause more pain then it's worth?

For now, I would keep it on there to see how your son does with it. Zero it in, make sure it holds zero and that there are no problems. If it proves to be a reliable scope at the range or in foul weather, then keep it on there!...If not, then go with the 4200!................................

It's paid for... Play with it for a while and then figure out what you want.

well,, I thought about leaving it on because he wants it. On the other hand,,he asked me what to do with the numbers and animal names,,, and I don't know. Combined with the second line on reticle,,,is it a rangefinder deal?   I have never seen an AO go 2 revolutions either.  I have another 22-250 I shoot,,,so if scope sucks, it won't drive ME crazy.

That is a tasco TR (trajectory rangefinder)....good scope.  We sold them for around $200. when new (early 90's).

 

You bracket the animal's body (top of back to belly) you are shooting at between the two horizontal crosshairs.  You do this by turning the power up and down until just the body fits between the two lines.  Then look at the power ring designation for the animal you are shooting and it will give you the yardage.  Turn the bdc dial to the corresponding yardage and hold dead on.

They are caliber specific and the scopes came with all of them, about 5 or 6 different ones.
