Warne rings are robust and stand up well to the vibes caused by firing a rifle round. I use them on centerfire rifles. On a 10/22 or any 22LR, probably an overkill, but if money no object, why not.

Thanks! I'm not really concerned about the cost, I just want a rock solid package. That's why I sprung for the Pelican to house it.

I don't have a lot of experience with optics, so that's why I was interested in the P-22. Maybe down the road when I get more experience I'll start looking at the Leupold VX-1/VX-2 scopes for my rimfire needs.

Have you used the Nikon app for the BDC?

I have not. My target 22 is zeroed @50 yards point blank. For beyond that I have a 223.

You may not see any real distinction between a VX and the Nikon in the daylight. As long as your scope hangs on to zero. Higher end glass really comes to play in the dusk or low light indoor shooting.

Is the P-22 a good choice and is it a quality scope? I was also wondering about the rings, are the Nikon rings the best to use? Any better options for a new scope $200 or less? This is my first 10/22, an Altamont Classic V, and I want to do it right. Thanks!

I have turned a lot of guy's on to Nikon PROSTAFF 3-9 Rimfire BDC 150 scope. I think for the 10/22 it will do all you need it to, clarity, field of view and accuracy. I have 1 on each of my 10/22's and have plinked steel cwor's at 200 yards using Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program. It really does work even though I have found a great margin in fps then with centerfire ammo. I use the P-22 Series of scope's on my M&P 15/22's that while accurate are not 10/22 accurate and mainly used for plinking inside of 100 yards. Here's a pic of my rig with Warne med. 1 inch mounts.

I think you will be happy with the P-22. I put one on my CZ 455 I bought last Summer. It is the perfect size for a 22 and a very good scope for the money. I mostly shoot paper at 50 yards and hunt with the gun. That said, if you are one of those people that like to shoot groups at 100 yards with a 22, the 9 power would be better and lots of folks go with even more.
