VArmit Scope

Loking to put a new scope on my new 22-250 for varmit hunting. I have never hunted the little critters so I'm confused on a power range for the scope. One of the new VX-III is probably gonna be the choice. Looking to spend 5-600 on this as well. 300 yards or better shots as well

Thanks in advance.

Joe

Re: VArmit Scope

...VX-III is the correct choice... you can't go wrong, just take your time and shop around for the best price and service... I use the 8.5-25x50; 6.5-20x40; also another 6.5-20x40 with the new varmint hunter reticle... and a few other Leupolds as well... while some may seek "good, cheap" scopes, the worst mistake you can make is to spend "too little"... jmho....

Re: VArmit Scope

is the 4-12 enough zoom range for long range critters?

Then go with a Nikon Monarch 6.5-20x44 with a Target Dot reticle. Excellent scope! It also comes with a sunshade.

Re: VArmit Scope

I've been using a IOR 4.5-14 on mine, shooting out to 650 yds. I'm going to go to a 6-20 or 24 for those longer ranges. If I was using the rifle for predators instead of PD's, or for shorter range shooting, say out to 500 max, I would stay with the 4.5-14. I am an IOR fan, but I did opt for a Zeiss 4.5-14 on my new .243 walking varminter.
