I think you will have great varmint/small game rifle. The .22 mag is kind of a step child, but it really can do a great job on critters up to 30-40 lbs or even bigger with good shot placement. Great rifle. I have a .22 MkIIg and it is a dime size shooter at 50 yards. And if the scope works, shoot it and who cares how much it costs. I put the Nikon 4x 22Prostaff on my ATD. Best optics of any of my scopes. I wish they had brought the .22 prostaff series sooner. I use it for squirrels and "whatever" out to 100 yards. The 4x for bonking squirrels out to 60-70 yards. My self imposed kill zone limit. It is all I need and I won't and shouldn't be taking shots over 100 yards at anything other than targets anyway.
