Re: Long range varnmit scope?
You won't be dissapointed in a Cooper! I have bought mine used almost two years and its still punching tight groups and slaying varmints, mines a 22ppc. As for scopes I have a Weaver V-6-24 on mine with varmint dot. It lacks resolution at the ranges you listed on smaller varmints. It tracks reliably with 1/8" clicks you can really fine tune your zero with that. But for the money I don't know what scope would have better resolution. The T series is a fixed power scope, I wouldnt do that to myself. I need a variable power because when the mirage gets bad you can turn down the power. You can't do that with a T-24. I also own a Leupold Vx-II 6-18x40 with target knobs on my 22-250 works just fine, I shot a rockchuck a few weeks ago at 635 yards. But my favorite scope I own is my Leupold VX-III 8.5-25X50LR. IT has plenty of elevation, probably more that you would ever need. The resolution is better than anything else I own, Bullet holes on overcast clowdy days appear as smudges at 600 yards. Try doing that with my Weaver. So its all in what you want to spend. Good luck
