Recommended scope for CMP Rimfire spotter..Leupold vs Vortex



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi, I’m planning to attend a CMP match soon and want to use a scope for my .22lr AR. I know the max magnification is 6x. I currently have a Leupold AR mod 1 1.5-4x on another rifle I own. Some have recommend me the vortex crossfire II 3-7x rimfire scope as well.

So my question is..... would you recommend the Leupold I have and switch it to the .22lr rifle or buy the vortex crossfire I instead. Will parallax be a problem as the leupold is set at 100 for the Leupold? I plan to set the scope at 4x for the 25/50yd distance.

Any suggestions or other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I posted a reply and it got lost? Or I never hit the button to submit? Now it has been a few days. ....

My suggestion was to get the Leupold 3-9x EFR AO. EFR= extended focal range. I think it is now in the Freedom line. This is a great scope that can be set with tape to 6x. You will have the max legal magnification. The tape is common and accepted practice. You will have a high end rimfire scope that will serve you well for a lifetime. It has AO. The reticle is a fine duplex. The CMP matches are well attended and you dont want to limit your self with the scope.

DavePat - Exactly. Same suggestion, less words. Follow that link.

((I wonder has this been posted on multiple sites or multiple RFC sub forums? I hope I am not loosing my mind))

One more thought, the 1.5-4x is a good magnification for a center fire hunting rifle. Or it would be better to swap onto a centerfire AR.

You could ask if Leupold will sell you a turret for the elevation? That was an option for the vx2 lineup. Easy enough to take the cap off.

Both decent scopes. The Leupold has a little bit better glass but is also more than 2◊ the price of the Vortex. At 6◊ I don't think it's going to affect your score no matter which one you choose. I would be more concerned with which reticle works better for you.

The 4X actually will work for the sporter match. I have shot it with an old 4X Weaver, the 10 ring is pretty large on the Sporter target. A 6 would be better but you may want to try the 4X before buying another scope. I've also shot it with a peep, also fun. Now have a 10/22 with a red dot but haven't shot the match with it. I didn't shoot the scope enough to figure out the best eye relief, it's way different between prone and sitting. Great fun.

You might also consider a Clearidge 3-9x32mm Ultra Rimfire for about $220. It's a great scope for the money and gives the Leupold VX2 3-9-33mm a run for it's money. I've used both for CMP and both do an excellent job.

Two of us shot with inexpensive Simmons 3x9 rimfire scopes with AO and target knobs. Clear optics but not much eye relief. I didn't adjust elevation between distances. Light weight. Might be a crap shoot on quality but we are three for three getting good usable scopes. The parallax focus and turrets come in handy.
