Leupold 4X. All you'll ever need.

I have a simple 3X9 32mm Tosco I bought at Walmart for $30 on mine and it works very well. There are a lot better scopes for sure but a 10/22 is a low cost "Fun Gun" to me. I saw no reason to put a $400 scope on my $200 gun. I only use it to shoot targets at the range or coke cans in the yard at my country house.

.22, but if you know how, you can shoot that far even with a .22. I assure you that you won't have any problems with Leupold, and you won't have to worry about whether or not you can see what you are trying to shoot. I have shot many turtles close up and many squirells far off. Trust me, it is worth paying for the scope. I would definately buy this instead of some $30 Wal-mart scope. Keep this in mind. I hope that my message is helpful for anyone that is thinking about buying a scope for their Ruger 10/22.
BBJJ Why would you want to put a expensive 3-9x40 Leupold scope on your .22 that's made for a centerfire rifle with the parallax set at 150 yards. When you could have put a expensive Leupold 3-9x33 thats made for a .22 rimfire?

I got my Ruger 10 22 deluxe Sporter in June. It's my first Rifle. It was advised that I start with this rifle to learn the fundamentals first before going Big. I eventually want to shoot long distance .308. My groups are pretty good with the stock iron sites. But as I am moving the targets out, it's becoming harder to see. I'm basically aiming in the general direction. Can't get accuracy like that. Time to buy a scope. I too was looking at that leupold 3-9x40 mildot. I got the math down for using mildot. But prefer FFP. That scope is SFP. Anyone know of a good mildot FFP in 3-9x40? Any other suggestion for mildot training out to 150 yards?

I'm assuming all these scopes everyone's suggesting will go good pretty much any .22 rifle not just a 10/22?

202,

Do yourself a favor and do not get any scope that does not have a 1" Tube on it. And you can get a decent scope for the 22 at Walmart for around $69-79.00. Of course you will need 1" Rings and probably Medium Height Rings/Mounts. Simmons & Bushnell make some of the better scopes in this price range.

Agreed- I put a Bushnell Banner 3-9x40 on my son's 10/22 and it's great!

Bright and clear, holds zero, very happy with it.

From the way people talk I must be charmed. I have NCstar sniper scope on my 10/22. I have hauled it on 4 wheelers, horses, dropped it on horseback and it is still on target. Glare is never an issue. The only way it could get better is if I had got it for free.

I also have a ebay muzzle brake on the 10/22. People say it's the stupidest thing they have ever seen. When I asked about the muzzle brake at the "high horse" I had 3 pages of people telling me how stupid I am. Yet it has saved my muzzle crown from taking some serious hits in just a few months, not to mention all the times it has prevented the barrel from getting stuffed with mud. I guess the people at the high road don't deal with these issues since there are no 4 wheelers, mud or horses at the mall.

Put a Simmons 3x9x32 22 Mag. scope on my 10/22 and works fine. The scope was free after returning to Simmons a 15 year old scope that was mounted on a 45/70 and after a couple of hundred shots would not hold zero. Imagine that. Got to like their guaranteed replacement of defective merchandise. dgang
