Default Rimfire Scope Part 2

Thanks guys for all the info on my previous thread Rimfire Scope, I really appreciate it. However, I have now limited my options down to a Mueller 4.5-14x44 AO Tactical MilDot for $150.00 or a Vortex Crossfire II 4-12x44 $170.00. Which one do you guys think would be better quality? Thanks again.

i have a cross fire 3x9x40.. its is alright. to me the cross hairs could be a little smaller. but it holds zero and is of decent quality.. i dont have knowledge of the mueller scope.

as i said in the other thread... for an extra $20 you can have a nikon prostsaff 4x12x40 and it blows the vortex out of the water.

Because of the limitations of 22lr accuracy, rimfire scopes usually have an adjustable parallax setting allowing it to be focused under 100y. I understand you're expecting to use it at 100y, but you might consider a scope that can that can focus at 25y or 50y as well.

A bit late

A friend has a Marlin 60 with a Nikon P22 scope. We hot it sighted to 50 yards. Just a rotation of the turret it is ready for 100 yards. I believe it also had marks for 125, 150, 175 and maybe 200.

I have heard a lot recently about HAWKEYE scopes for Rimfire, and how they are accurate out to 200 Yds.,...
