A scope for competition under $100? Have you seen what people are using where you’ll be shooting? If any of them are under $100, get that. With rimfire it doesn't take much to outshoot the ammunition, but round after round for hours at a time it may take a bit more than $100.
On the other hand, if you're never changing your ammo and aren't changing your elevation, if it's going to be a set it and forget it, maybe you don't require consistently resettable turrets and a <$100 scope will do just fine.
This is a sort of "4 Star" $100 and under scopes from Optics Planet.
I also have an Mk II.
It's a TR with a Bi-pod. I shoot it BR and prone. I now have a Mueller 8-32x44 scope on it. It focuses down to 10 yards. I have no problem seeing the holes at 100y. I don’t bother with a spotting scope when I use it. I have a couple of thousand rounds of CCI through it and at 50y the clicks repeat without deviation. I haven't tried subsonic at 100y yet. I don’t know how clear the image is before daybreak or dusk, in a mist, shooting into the light, but for the range it’s fine. It did cost me $230. I had a coupon or something.
This is a 14x Mueller scope that may be suitable for 50y. It also focuses down to 10y. It’s $129.
