Best scope for suppressed .22 bolt gun

My Ruger American rimfire with threaded barrel is ordered and my can is in jail for god knows how long so the last piece is glass. Anybody have recommendations for a dedicated subsonic 22 scope? This gun will likely eat a diet of 99% subs so no need for crazy magnification. However with that being said I am currently looking at the Vortex Copperhead 4-12 at joebobs for $129 or the Crossfire II 4-12 at Cabela's for $109. Thoughts? ideas? I'm also looking to stay under $150. The Crossfire II is pulling me that way since with the cheap Cabela's gift card it would be like $90 real cash. I've never owned Vortex magnified optics (2 SPARC red dots) so I'm not tied to that brand. Thanks

Glass is clear. Reticle marks are pretty spot on with Remington subs. I have it on my FV-SR. I'd have to say I really like it.

+1 for Hawke. I'd never heard of them until I bought my last PCP rifle. The salesman at Pyramyd Air recommended one, and I was (and am) blown away with the clarity, overall quality and value. Definitely worth investigating!

I am going to check out the Hawke. Never heard of them.

I have the Nikon 150 rimfires on the two rifles I have for suppressors. Been happy with them. I can go from 50yd paper to 100yd 3" plate quickly. The spot on app is pretty close or at least helps when changing ammo.

Since the scope was going on a bolt gun basically dedicated to subsonics, I wanted a scope with that capability. I've been happy. Killed a couple of groundhogs with head shots. I have no complaints about the quality.

I'll post up some info and pics when my Ruger comes in. It was between the Savage and this and the Ruger won out when I was looking for guns. Still gotta find a threaded Bobcat too!

Interesting. The first one I pulled up online was $300 but there's a few on flea bay for $159 , which is more in my ballpark.
