    Well guys, I finally figure out which scope to grab.
    I had it down to a tasco and a center point and they way I decided was a little uhmm.....odd I guess.

    The tasco was a 4-9x32 and the center point is just a 4x32. The tasco was also about 20.00 mor then center point, which didn't buy me since it had more to offer as far as magnification as well as having a reputation. The center point how ever had two things I liked.

    It not only was a bit cheaper, but unlike the tasco it came with rings already. I know I could I ponyed up the extra bit of change for some, but I like one stop shopping and Walmart (least mine) doesn't seem to carry any rings at all. Also the center point has anti-glare caps and can also be adjusted by hand. To me that's a pretty big plus since I don't like to carry any more then I need as the range I use is down a pretty steep slope and my car is a little to low to bring down so I walk the last half a KM or so down/up.

    (don't have it mounted yet as the rifles are stored at my girls place for the time being. But I'll toss a picture up IF we happen to make it to the range tomorrow).

    The last picture was my attempt to show how clear the scope is, even though the distance of that target (from diffrent shoot) was maybe all of 10-12' away. I'll try and get a better one when I gt the chance to.

    I've got that same Center Point on a couple of my .22s. Good economical scope that includes the rings. No problem with mine out to about 50 yards.

    I've got the Center Point 4x-16-40 on my Savage BV. Great scope for the $70 I paid for it. That one I'll stretch out to 100 yard with no problems. Or at 50 yards pick off paintballs all day long.

    I know you said you reach out to 100yards with your savage, but just because I'm a little curious and like to challenge myself, what's the farthest you've shot using the center point?

    Also, roughly how long/many rounds did it take you to sight in?

    100 yards. Can keep the CCIs inside a 2" circle without having to try too hard.

    I can get back to 300 yards at my range. I haven't taken the .22 back that far. Maybe one day just for fun. I've tried the .223 back that far but it is wearing a Bushnell scope. Made me realize I need more practice at a closer range before I'm ready to move back.

    That's actually not to bad. Can still hit a gopher/ground squirrel, probaly not be the best way to take them out though.

    As for the .223......that's still farther the. I've web tried to shoot. Ive yet to actually get my irons properly sighted and kinda gave up....
    To me a scope seems so much easier to dial in and think once I'm used to my gun and able to get at least three shots into a quarter I'll take it out to fifty yards from 25 and just slowly walk back out to 100yards. If I manage to get some really decent groups at that distance, then I MIGHT walk a little farther and try for 125 just for fun. Don't see that happening anytime soon though.

    EDIT also only have .22s to try this with as of now.

    Well made it to the range, so he's a picture of the rifle with the scope mounted. In my mind it looks pretty sweet and since it performs amazingly, I'm gong to stick with this scope for now.

    I put a CenterPoint 3-9X32 .22 Rimfire on my old Remington 512 a while back and have been very pleased with the way it has performed. The glass is clear and precise and it's held zero perfectly through thousands of rounds.

    I especially like the mil-dot reticle. I zeroed at 50 yards and need only use a two dot hold over to be on target at 100 yards.

    Considering that these scopes are only about $54 at Walmart, they are amazingly good.

    Here's mine:

    I won't lie, I wish I was able to find a normally priced scope in my area that had a Mil-dot sight. In my mind they make judging hold over a lot easier then having just a solid line to use. But then again, I've also used them only on video games. So I'm not exactly sure I'll like them as much on an actual firearm.
