    Under $100: the 3-9X32 Simmons .22 Mag Scope with A.O. Blue or Silver $65 +/-.

    Over $100: the 4.5-14 X 40 Mueller APV with A.O. Blue or silver $130 +/-

    Both have excellent reputations for quality on a 10/22. :cool:

    Weaver Classic Rimfire, a little over $100 bucks with parallax set at 50 yards. I think anything over 3-9 power is overkill in a .22.

    What are you using it for? Is it stock or a build? Plinker or target?

    I'm with him.
    But with the recoil of the 10/22 you can use some big cheap scopes without much worry. I got a 6x20x50 for mine off of e-bay and had it for several years for just a tick over $100 with no issues at all thus far. It's held solid and killed a lot of squirrels. Not 100% sure I would trust it on the 308, but it's been rock solid on the .22

    That would be my question too. :)

    The straight 40 power scopes on my 200 yd beer can killers would be a bit much for my keep it light wt, carry all day tree rat slayers.

    For a keep it stock, right out of the box 10/22 I like a good 3x9. If weight is an issue, ya might even go with a straight 4x scope or even a red dot. Good luck! Ken

    I have 2 stock 10-22 rifles. One is carrying a red dot and the other is carrying a Konus 2.5x32 shotgun scope. My bolt action is carrying a 3-12x40 AO. I sometimes kill paper with it at 100 yds. I have not found much need for more than 2.5x at 50 yds.

    I have a nice nikon scope on one of my .22's, but I personally have found a cheap sightmark red dot to be great. At the ranges a .22 is generally accurate at, a cheap reflex sight is fine, plus most of the hunting I've done with a .22 is more suited to a small red dot.

    Just my opinion, but worth a thought.

    What do you really mean by good? There's Bushnell Banner 4-16x40A/O with I/R for around $100, Center Point Adventurer 4-16X40A/O for around $70, Simmons 44MAG 4-12X44S/F for $125, Redfield Revolution 4-12X40 for $200, BSA Sweet 17(or 22?) 3-12X40A/O for $100, Burris FullfieldII 4-12X40 for $250, Leupold Rifleman 4-12X40 for $260(?), and lots more for more or less.
    I have thest scopes:
    Bushnell Banner 4-16x40A/O with I/R---clear glass, accurate A/O, audible accurate turret clicks. Mounted on Savage Axis 22LR.
    BSA Sweet 17 3-12x40A/O----not on rifle as of yet, gonna get a HMR 17.
    Simmons 44MAG 4-12x44S/F----exceptional glass, accurate A/O, great scope(surprisingly)----mounted on Ruger 77/22 22magnum.
    I also have a Burris FullfieldII and a Redfield Revolution, Weaver Classic, Nikon Buckmaster scopes but in different magnifications mounted on centerfires, and they have superior glass, but also at a higher costs.

    What are you going to shoot with it? Day or night? I have the Nikon Prostaff 3 x 9 x 40 on my Ruger 10/22. It lets lots of light in at night for shooting raccoons and a few hogs at 50-75 yards. It wont break the bank at $169.00 I really like it.
