Hard to argue with any of the recommendations, but I'd like to add one more. Take a hard look at the Mueller 8.5x25 TAC for about $165. You won't be sorry. I've had mine on my 10/22t that rides in my trunk for about 9 yrs. still holds zero. Very clear . I easily read holes at 100 yds.

Any others in the -/+ $300 range?

It depends on if you want to go front/first focal plane or second focal plane. Here are two good options. One is a FFP scope, the other is a SFP scope.

You do not mention the distance you plan to shoot at. The target shooting I do is off-hand indoor sporter at 50 feet. That made scope selection a real challenge since many of the rimfire scopes are not adjustable objective. That is not a problem if you are shooting at 30 plus yards where most of them are adjusted.
Also for close range shooting the mil dot or other dot type sites are going to be a real problem as they cover the 10 ring. You would need to find a fine crossed reticle for precision shooting.
If you are shooting at longer ranges and from a bench, the selection is much less critical.
Finally, I have had very poor support from Nikon. Their customer service is the pits. I own several (4) and would not buy another. I also have a Rimfire Nikon for sale if anyone is interested in a deal on one. PM me for details.

A nice TARGET Scope might have 1/8, 3/8, or 1/2 inch DOT or fine cross hair, to name some specs. If you can find an AO scope vs side focus for target shooting, you might want to consider. Fixed scopes for target competition, are nice.

Parallax from 50 feet to infinity are nice if plan to do some indoor shooting. Hunting scopes might have a parallax of 50 yards + and usually side focus.

There are many things to consider in looking for a TARGET scope. Selection of true AO or Fixed Target Scopes are pretty limited by manufactures these days...IMO

I have a Hawke 8-32x 30mm scope for sale that is great for bench shooting which cost new $500 but I am selling for $350 shipped. I was able to see 17hmr hits out to 200 yards.

Let me know if your interested.
