I'd go with the in-expensive Bushnells Banners also ! For the price , not a bad scope. I have a 3.5 x 10 and it is enough..!

Honestly, the cheapest scopes you will see serious rimfire benchrest shooters using is the Weaver 36x fixed scope which runs around $450. Even at 50 yds you will need a high magnification scope to accurately place your shots.

This isn't to say you can't have lots of fun with a cheaper variable out on the range, but you will be seriously handicapped in formal competition without the right gear.

Sorry if we are coming across as discouraging but I think we are just trying to be realistic. If you are going in with your eyes open and just looking to have some fun you should be set. Likewise if you are just shooting against a casual crowd using their everyday rimfires that can be great fun and result in some great bragging rights. Just be aware ahead if time that Savages or Rugers with cheap scopes are going to be smoked by dedicated BR shooters with the best guns and gear.

I got this scope off a member from another forum Friday and put it on this Savage. It's an Osprey 6x24. Got it for 120 shipped. Deals are out there.

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.!gridSize=40&page=1&price%5B%5D=0 &price%5B%5D=100&rating=4&sort=highest-price
+1 on the M
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 donít 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 donít know how clear the image is before daybreak or dusk, in a mist, shooting into the light, but for the range itís 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. Itís $129.
+1 on the Mueller. Excellent scopes, good optics. Good support. Go for the Mueller. I have the 14X on a Rem. Mdl Five and it is a "Hole" shooter.
