[QUOTE=lckytylr;766288]A scope that doesn't break the bank that gets really good reviews is the Vortex Diamondback.


+1 on Vortex. Good scope for the $. You might also look for a deal on a Busnell Elite. I always stayed away from Bushnell but their newer mid to high end stuff is reportedly really nice. I shot through a buddy's and was impressed.

Forgot to add: don't buy crap. You'll be bummed. I put a crap BSA on a 10/22 and it wasn't even acceptable for that. And I'm not the mysterious internet guy who shoots 700yds with 22LR. It sucked at 50.

Re: Opinions on the .220 swift

Guys,
Thanks for your recent replys and suggestion. I looked it up and noticed Vortex also had a 4-12x40. I like the extra magnification, is it as good as the 3.5-10x50? Also there is a 4-12x40 with a AO. Would it be a lot better than the one without? It sure cost more!

Once again thanks!

Re: Opinions on the .220 swift

I am a huge fan of the 220 Swift. I have several they are great and u reloading is a bonus. I have a old ruger model 77V my first real varmit gun and it still shoots good 20+ yrs later.

As far as scopes vortex are great but i recently bought a burris off the classifieds here and it was a 6-24X44 for 400 delivered and i am more then happy with it, i put it on a tikka t3 scout i bought out of the classifieds here and it shot 5 shots inside a one in circle at 200 yds so i cant argue.

Good luck with the 220 and ur scope selection
