Bushnell 3200 5-15x40 Tactical?

This might be my first longrange scope purchase...I need your help please!
I will be mounting it to a 22lr(cz 452) to begin practicing long range shooting on steel and varmints. Does anybody have any objections or advice on other scopes for $300?
By the way...How far out will this get me with Wolf Match Target (and i'm assuming I need a 20 moa. base)? Adjustment range is 50" @ 100yards (Bushnell website specs.). Thanks in advance for the help!!!

The BC of a 22 bullet is about 0.12 or so or less. It goes subsonic between 100-200 yards. It has a drop of 50 MOA at 300 yards plus or minus some.

Some people advise starting off subsonic to avoid the inaccuracies associated with the transition.

I have been using a Super Sniper 10X on my 452 for two years with very good results. It's $300 or $325. It doesn't require a special base. You would need 30mm rings.
