Looking to top off another 22 rifle inbound. Something with a BDC or holdover dots for distance shots.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Is this going to be a paper puncher or are you going to hunt with it?

If hunting with it the 22LR is going to run out of steam pretty quick so you don't need near the X's as for a paper puncher.

I have an 8-32x scope on a paper puncher and a 1.5-6x40mm on one for hunting.

What is long distance to you?

What is your budget?

It'll be for a paper puncher and gong pinger mostly. 150 yards max with mostly 50 yard shooting.

I use a 3-9x40 on another 22 rifle and its fine for my needs.

I usually sight in at 50 yards and ping metal at 100 and 150 occasionally

would like to keep it under $250-$300

Here's one that might fit your needs and there is a good price on it now. I'm kind of a Burris fan.

Burris works well for me. Fullfield and Timberline models, 4.5-14 and ballistic plex reticle. Timberline more compact and more generous eye box. Use them on centerfire and rimfire.
