How are you going to use it? Are you going to dial the turrets for varying distances or do you want to use a reticle for hold over? How far do you plan to shoot? What are you targets going to be?

it will be used for ground squirrels, crows and targets of course from ranges 100-300 yards. I would like hold over preferably i tihnk but dont care either way. I normally dial and would like to test a hold over scope.

Any Burris scope with the ballistic plex will give you 100, 150, 200, 250, and 300 yard holdovers with the 17 HMR. The Burris Timberline 4.5-14 for around 200 bucks is a great scope for the 17.

When you say hold over you mean that you want to use a reticle for holdover?

And how much do you want to spend?

Im not too sure, i figured take a look at a bunch of difference scopes. 500-600 bucks is starting to get a little high for a rimfire to me.

Thinking of going with a Burris FullField II 3-9 or 4.5-14x42mm with ballistic plex because it works with a 17 HMR drop out too 300
