I just shot that last rimfire match (FVSR) with a Nikon P223 3-9x. It comes with a BDC/holdover reticle and you can use the sweet Nikon app on your phone to figure out the holdovers based on specific ammo. You can mess with in online as well.

This app alone is worth its weight in gold. I zeroed at 40m and thats it. I made hits at 40, 60, 77, and 100 meters.

Similar to this:

Here is what I have, bought from SLSC member NIB for close to $100:

Lemme know and I can let you check it out. The FVSR suppressed is nice to shoot.

I know you are looking to stay under $150 but man, I have never regretted the financial pain of buying better glass. I bet you won't regret it either.

Think about it, you have invested a lot of time and money in this project so far, do yourself a favor and don't go trailer park on us at this final stage by putting unworthy glass on it! Please!

I have had great luck with the Leupold VX-2 Rimfire EFR Rifle Scope on top of my suppressed precision .22 problem solver. Link to the scope below and here is what the scope looks like mounted. Been able to able to make some jaw dropping shots (for .22 long distances) with this rig.

I personally prefer to dial corrections versus any BDC type setup.

The Midway BSA Tactical 4-14x is a nice scope. And about $250 when on sale. AFAIK, the Mueller and Primary Arms 414x scopes are the same as the Midway one.

I have the Midway on my CZ 455 and like it.

Ok I never bought anything and this is back on the hot list. I was reading field and stream and Dave Petzal said the Leupold VX-2 VFR is the best rimfire scope available so I started looking into that. I've blown past the original budget but that's OK. Some pics I see online show it with regular scope caps and some show finger dial turrets. I think I'm leaning toward the dial up vs drop reticle. Anybody have a reason for one over the other? Main purpose of this rifle is to kill squirrels quietly during bow season and maybe pest control should the need come up.

The BDC reticle is only good for one particular ammo.

Dialing, you work up the dial ups for YOUR ammo.

Ok I've decided on a scope. Going to buy the vortex below. Anybody have mount recommendations? I currently to own P series mounts, SSALT, Larue and Burris but was wondering if anybody had a recommendation for a one inch scope on a .22. Thanks

Vortex 4-12 I'm buying. Went over on price but oh well. I'll have a $1,500 .22 when this is all said and done with the can.

Just as long as the scope is mounted high enough to clear the can on the end of the barrel. You want the lowest part of the scope front bell to be higher than the top of the can by a little. If you don't at some powers you will lose contrast and sharpness in the lower part of the window.

I have the Diamondback HP in 4-16x and two Crossfire II's in 4-12x. They're all set up with the BDC reticle, the Crossfire's are on my CZ 452 and a Marlin 783 in .22WMR. I haven't had one complaint using them, just had the 452 out last weekend with my wife and her 455. She had a cheaper Hawke 3-9x on hers with no reticles. When we moved from 50 to 100 she got a little jealous that her Hawke didn't show as clearly or have any ranging aids. Going to swap the other Crossfire over to her 455 since it gets out more than the Marlin. I'm sure you'll be happy with the Diamondback, mine is sitting on a Weatherby Vanguard Varmint Special in .308. It doesn't get out as much as the .22's, but I have had no issues with any of my Vortex glass.

Never heard of Vortex being trailer park trash. The more affluent must be moving in.

WV, I have looked at that scope a couple times but in the 3-9 guise. I like the reticle design, had a Redfield with similar reticle. That or a mildot works well.
