Default Rimfire Scope $100-$200?

I've got a Savage MKII FV .22lr and I'm looking for a solid not too expensive scope preferebly a 3-9x40. Iv'e seen the Nikon Pro Staff model for about $150. Is this a good buy? Any suggestions?

Love that scope. For the money, Nikon is hard to beat. Using Nikons Spot On app is intuitive and makes using the BDC reticle easy.

Thanks. I shoot regular winchester and remington bulk for practice and it does the job for squirrel hunting. Would bulk be fine for this scope or should I hype up to cci mm? I shoot on average 50 yds for hunting and 100yds for targets but shooting bulk at 100yds isn't very consistant. I would be fine with the mm but i shoot alot and I'm on a budget.

My Savage seems to prefer the bulk standard velocity stuff over CCI MM or Velocitors. I mainly punch paper out to 175yds and Winchester 36gr HP seems to be the most consistent. You won't regret the Nikon 3-9 BDC

I put Bushnell's $30.00 (at Walmart) fixed three power scope on one of my .22s, then went back and bought two more. It is a perfect small game scope, as far as I am concerned. I punch paper at about 75 yards with my rifles and the optics are good enough to see the holes in the paper at at that distance, even with my old eyes. They seem to hold zero well. At the distance I shoot, squirrels would be putting a bounty on my head.

the nice thing about a rimfire, is the lack of recoil. even a cheaper scope that as long as it's clear and will adjust will work fine on a rimfire 22. i have a inexpensive Simmons 3-9x40 on my Marlin M60 and it works great.

I got the same scope and can't complain about it.
