Default scope for my 10/22

Im looking for a new scope. cheap but reliable and has the features
looking at the centerpoint optics and also leapers
would like to have mildots and illuminated reticle, 3x for lowest magnification and 9 or 12 for max magnification. and lastly would like for it to have turrets instead of having to twist off the cap and use a coin for adjustments
reason being is Id like it for hunting small game plus as well as target shooting and somewhat long range shooting
any suggestions? looking to spen 100 max, seeing the centerpoint optics and leapers have virtualy the same scopes and prices are somewhat around the same for each similar scope, which brand is more reliable and have better quality?

I have two Simmons 3 -9 x 32 .22 Mag with A.O. scopes that have worked very well on my 10-22's for years. They're hard to beat. Cost is about $45 to $65 depending on finish and sales. Also, do yourself a favor and spend another $20 for some good Weaver rings. The rings that come with many scopes aren't that good.

A few years ago I needed an inexpensive scope for my old bolt action .22 rifle and grabbed a CenterPoint 3-9X32 .22 Rimfire scope at Walmart for something like $54. I have been super impressed with the quality and clarity of this scope especilly considering the price. It has held zero perfectly and I really like the, mil-dot retical it has. I zero at 50 yards and then use a two-dot holdover at 100 yards to be on target.

I tossed a 4-16x40 Centerpoint on mine and so far so good. It's like $80 at Walmart and so far works pretty good.

Another vote for the Simmons 3-9x 22 Mag AO. Very nice scope for the money.
