Started with a Nikon ProStaff rimfire 3- 9X on my Ruger American carbine but the scope was simply too darn bulky and I sent it back for a Weaver 2.5-7X rimfire.

During the time I was waiting I ended up mounting my Weaver RV9 3-9X rimfire which was going to be used on another rifle. For now it still serves as my 22 magnum rifle scope.

My 22 mag is massively overscoped.
Its wearing an optisan 6-24 x 56 evx scope...but wait, there is a reason why!
I do a lot of night vision shooting, the 56mm objective and 30mm tube on this scope lets in massive amounts of IR light for my home made night vision set up.
In good conditions, no fog or rain, I can clearly see out to 400 meters plus, obviously I dont shoot that far but I need a long view to assure a safe backstop and no stock or people lurking behind my target in the dark.
Here is a short video showing a treeline at 240 meters, keep in mind that in real life its much clearer, it was filme don a smartphone so it loses a LOT of resolution.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOmRTklsFJw

I bought the Bushnell HD Legend 4.5 x 14 x 44 awhile back and I'm very happy with it. It comes with a 4" sunshade, side paralax adjustment, quick focus eye piece, zero reset turrets with caps, and can be had with a mil dot reticule which I didn't know about until after buying mine with the plex reticule. I paid $149.99 at a local store, (Bi-Mart).
That's what sits on my T-Bolt 22 WMR

I use a silver Nikon Prostaff 5 3.5-14 x40 with side focus and bdc reticle on my Marlin 982vs. The power range is just about perfect for what I do and it fits the rifle really well. The glass is also very good in my opinion.

I am about to put a Leupold VX-R 2-7x on my 512 wmr. I'm thinking it'll be a good match, but time will tell.

I like my Weaver RV-7, a 2.5-7x28mm scope. It is fine for hunting out to 100 yards, and the scope is an exceptional value in terms of optical clarity and mechanical quality.

Can't go wrong with the 3.5-10. I'm a Leupold guy, but LGS guy had me compare a Nikon 3-9 pro staff efr to a VXII 3-9. The Nikon was brighter, clearer, less expensive. Very pleased so far.
