I like that a red dot that will not brake the bank and that is a x2.

I dont want to spend 200+ I all so know you get what you pay for.

I've beaten on four of those TruGlos for the past couple of years with no issues. They do eat batteries faster than I had expected. Luckily batteries are cheap.

I put a Vortex Stikefire with a 2X magnifier on my Granddaughter's 6.8 and I truly believe that although, the Voxtex is adequate for whitetail hunting the 2X magnifier is worthless. At 50 yards she can string a 5 shot group into a 5 inch target without the use of the magnifier. Using the magnifier is more challenging and restricts the sight picture IMHO.

A red dot can be an effective hunting tool for large game at longer yardages without the use of any magnification.

That was the point with my original post, no need to go overboard on the optics for the Charger.

The Vortex can be had for a little over $100.00 and TruGlo make optics for well under $100.00.

There are many fine scopes made in the $50.00 to $200.00 range. Put the right shooter behind one and a fistful of 22LRs and that equals good times at the range. The Ruger will do the rest.

Now you didn't say you had a budget you just said whats the best scope for a charger at 50 yards.

What do you expect us to do read your mind?

The best scope is the one that fits your budget and does what you need it to do. You are not going to get the best scope on the market for $200 not even $1500.

The BEST of anything is really subjective to a point of why even ask the questions.

If you would have said

What is the best scope for a ruger charger that will shot at 50 yards and below in the up to $200 catagory then you would have gotten a much better answer like.

I am going to then point you towards the Weaver 2.5-8x28mm pistol scope.

Might also want to take a look at the Bushnell Trophy XLT pistol scopes as well.

If you can spend $300 then go with the Nikon Encore 2.5-8x28mm scope with the BDC.

You were vague and left it wide open. Then you get upset about it.

Be specific and help comes easier and faster.

sorry if I came off as rude. I only asked the open ended question. so I have a idea of what I need to spend. if I have. to

spend a lot of money that part of the hobby. I guess.
