I got a Ruger 10-22 T when they first came out and mounted a Burris 6 X AO Target scope on it . I shot it off a benchrest trying various 22 HP bullet ammo to find out what brand it liked. The rifle was zeroed at 60 yards. To check to AO mark setting targets were set at 10,20,30,40,50,60,70, and 80 yards and new marks were made to correct the distance marks when needed. I also shot five shot groups at each distance to see how low, then high, then low the groups were. The rifle was used for spring prairie dog shooting when there are a lot of shots within 80 yards. The 6X scope had plenty of power for shooting within 80 yards. I have a Simmons 4-16 AO scope on a Annie 1710 22 and set up the scope like I did with the Burris scope. As the power of a scope increases the field of view decreases so the scope is set at 10 X most of the time.-- a rife, scope, and some other thing are items what a person may wont BUT don't need- Save up some more $$$$ . I m 78 years old , I have gotten some cheep low cost items but ended selling them at a loss.

My wife said" if I'm gonna shoot that old thing(my 20 Y.o. 10/22) then I want a nice scope." Im putting on a TruGlo 2x42 Multi-view Rectile red dot sight on my Mossberg, so I wanted the same one for her. No dice!! She's a NIKON camera freak(2 DSLR Bodies, 6 lenses, plus a Pocket P&S for both stills & short video clips,...so she wants a Nikon scope....Will the P-223 from Nikon work well on the 10/22,..one of our Walmart's has it for less the $100....

No. That scope is designed for AR-15 rifles. You will have problems with parallax at under 100 yards. The crosshairs will move off the target if you shift your head.

yup parallax is a bear. lots of reasonably priced scope just won't do for a 22 cause of that

If you can afford $150 then get a Nikon 3x9 and be done with it. DON"T buy the cheap $30-$100 scopes. They are junk period. Good glass is a wonderful thing and for the money Nikon is great. Vortex makes a few in the $150 range that would be my second choice. I'm 58 so my eyes are getting old also. I own both Nikon and Vortex. The Vortex 30mm tubes are awesome for the money.

I would ignore this advice. Yes a $150 is much better than a $50 scope but it costs three times as much and a $50 one will do what you told us you wanted it to do.

I used to guide in Montana for moose, mt. goats mule deer etc.......... You will find that the guides carry beat up old rifles but have great glass which includes scopes and binocs. Garadex you obviously don't have a clue. A good glass will move as advertised when you sight it in. It will give a way better picture when looking through it. Plus he said in a post he could go $150. I'm far from a scope snob as most of my scopes on a 100 or so guns are $300 or less but the cheap garbage scopes are just that, garbage.

Brave? Do you use one eye or two for aiming?
Why do people think they need a $700 scope for anyway? (I know a guy...he just did bought the $700 one and I don't get it - he was no better for it ??? ) All your friends here (the above) have good advice. Check it out!

My eyes are in the stage of they don't know if they can see far or near. So glasses come off and wear the plastic protective ones (can't see squat) But recently, someone asked "one eye or two"? I aimed with both eyes open and felt I shot much better than with one eye open/one eye closed. just sayin' two eyes may be better than one ALSO... along with the new scope you are buying.
