Yeah I just want somthing with mildots or BDC reticle and a lot of power that's what I prefer with a .22 I like watching the bullet go down range and drop like a cinder block too

I have an old BSA (1990's) 6-24x40mmAO Contender I'd sell for short $. It sat on my .308HB for quite a few years. It really was way to much for a .17HMR.HB that I put it on. Not sure how it would be on a .22rf. If your interested, PM me. It has both a sun-shade and screw on caps. It would be about 1/3 of the length of your rifle.

I was given a couple BSA Sweet 22 6-18x40 scopes several years ago by a friend of mine that owns a gun shop.He wanted me to try them out,and give him a report on how they performed.
Knowing the track record on "Cheap" scopes,I told him not to expect much. I mounted both of them on 10/22T rifles,and did a complete testing of the scopes.
They performed alot better than I'd thought.The clarity isn't great,but clear enough for rimfire work.Parallex was OK,from 15-100yds.Tracking was OK.
The scopes also hold a zero pretty well. Eye relief was good also.
They came with 3 Turret caps that are marked for different weight bullets.Depending on the ammo your shooting,the calibrations are hit or miss.Some ammo shoots faster/slower than the turrets are calibrated.So,I had to test different ammo in order to find just what each was calibrated to.When I found a type of ammo that shot the same fps that the turrets were marked for,they worked pretty good out to 150yds,but it had to be a calm day to shoot that far with any accuracy.
I still have one of them on my 10/22,and it'll probably stay there until I break it.

If you can only afford this type of scope,they do work.But I'll spend a little more money and get a better quality scope.

Most recent scope I've gotten was a BSA 8-32x44 Platinum scope from Natchez Shooters Supply for $70 plus shipping. Others sell this model for around $115. It was a X-mas present. Presently have it on a 308 Marlin heavy barrel varmit rifle. Have about 60 rounds fired at targets with it.....so far I'm happy with it. Even at 32 power, optics are clear for me and elevation/windage adjustments have been reliable. Gent set up to shoot a few benches from me first day I had this BSA scope at range. On his rifle was what I knew to be at least a $1500 Nightforce scope. Normally he's got a Zeiss Conquest on one of his rifles. We'd shot with each other before and had chatted a number of times....so, I invited him to take a look thru my $70 BSA X-mas present when he got a chance. Within a minute or so he is sitting behind my rifle viewing my 100 yard target and our 200 yard berm. Long story short, he was very surprised with the scope....thought the glass was pretty good and he had no gripes about the turrets when playing with them. He will comment he had a number of friends that hunted who swore by the BSA scopes. Anyway, the scope is an old design (Platinum probably introduced 10 yrs ago), very long compared to newer scopes and probably scheduled to be discontinued.

I just thought I would add my question on this thread too,does anyone know if medium rings on a 50mm scope will clear the barrel on a savage mark 2 tr,and if not what about when I add a .20 moa base

I was considering a BSA scout scope at one time. The NCstar? I can't bring myself to do it.
