All of my 22mags wear a 4-16x scope and so do some of my 17hmr rifles...because I am a hunter...the rimfire rifles that are for longer shots wear a 6-24x but I only have a few of them. Even my 22 Hornet wears a 4-16x and my long range CF rifles have a 4-20x, 5-20x, 6-20x or 6-24x scopes.

Bam bam is correct when all you need is a crosshair a 1x scope is a beautiful thing especially in a forest where shots can be close.

side note: When I was hunting with my Marlin 883 in 22mag almost every weekend for 2 years a 1-4x scope would have been fantastic. I got spoiled with a Weaver V-16 (4-16x) and that is why I have bought over 20 of them.

So choose wisely.

Like bam-bam to me the Full Stocks look better with low end scopes. Not so top heavy. Here they are also used as walking rifles as opposed to dedicated varmint rigs. So a 1-4X or 2-7X gives plenty of low end for snap shooting and the upper end woks if I need to reach. Then there is always the peep sight.

Some of us, non-youth, need considerably more Xs on our rifles. Got a 4-16x Weaver on my 452 FS (thanks to s).

But, I agree with Bam. I just took a 3-9x off my SS 30-40Krag, and put a 1-4x Leupold on it. Hunting NYS for deer this week and woods is thick with max distance 35 yaards. great FOV.
