    some may laugh but on my lwr recoil rifes, 17HMR, 22LR, i use the simmons brand. i think it is the 44 mag version, or something simular. look for the ones that have the 1/8 moa adj. with my 17 HMR which is a older savage i upgraded the trigger with the sear from rifle basix. sweet.... on our fun range we shoot different things. Jello filled small water bottles, golf balls, ect. at 150 yrds, i can make a golf ball fly.... that is how we play golf.... have fun and enjoy...Bear.

    The Nikon Buckmaster 6x18x40 with side focus and eather of three reticles that you like
    will make a fine scope for the 17HMR.

    They are priced around $350.00 and are worth the money.

    I put the bushnell elite 3200 in 5x15x40 on mine. It works very well and it was like $330 or close to it.
