Help me decide which scope to mount on my .22 trainer.  The rifle will be used 99% for paper and plinking, and maybe 1% chance of varmint.  I am wanting mildot as my future .308 and .223 projects will have FFP mil/mil and the .22 is to be used as a trainer.  I would like to keep the cost below $250.   My top 3 picks are:

  1. Bushnell 3200 Tactical fixed 10x mil/mil $200 at ******

This scope has excellent reviews and it would be great to have mil/mil.  My concern is shooting within 100yds with no parallax adjustment.  If the scope was AO, I would already have it ordered.

2.       Vortex 6-24x50 Crossfire $99.95 special at SWFA

I chose the Vortex over the Tasco, due to Vortex’s lifetime warranty.  The scope has mixed reviews and my obvious concern is its reliability.  Also the scope is mil/moa, but for $100 it’s a bargain.

3.  Tasco TAVAR624X42M $69.95 at *******

It’s the lowest cost of the 3 and much like the Vortex.  Both are 6-24 mil/moa with AO.  The scope has good reviews, especially for rimfire, but my concern is quality and warranty.

I am also considering:

Weaver Tactical 3-10 mil/mil

Millett TRS1

Leopold 3-9

RedFeild 4-12

Weaver 40/44

Muller APV/APT

SS10X42

I would pick one of the Super Sniper fixed power scopes probably the 16x for daylight target use but if needed to hunt in low light the 6x is the brightest.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

If you are wanting a Mil Dot scope, for both a rim fire and eventually a center fire rifle, I'd get the 10x SS, rear focus that Wes suggested. 

By "Trainer" do you mean you have a CZ 452?

I have a standard 10/22 that I will use for now.  I am looking at purchasing a Savage possibly, and if so will move the scope to that.

You will enjoy the scope more on a centerfire because the quality of the ammo is much better centerfire bullets are much higher quality and more accurate.

I'd go with the SWFA SS 6X as mentioned above.  It will have plenty of adjustment if you decided to really stretch the 22 to the limit and are about a tough as they come.   Glass is great and adjustments are true.  And if you decided to upgrade later one, SWFA SS's hold their value very well.

I would go with the SS 10x for your stated usage. Plus it is a much better scope than the others you listed.
