You ca't get any more humane than that.I have used a cheap Simmons 3x9x50 at 300-yards with a 22LR to lob them in to prairie doggies. But you have to have it on power 3, and use the lower point of the thicker post where it meets the finer vertical crosshair for bullseye. (With the elevation on the turret already all the way up!)
It is funny seeing it all happen: a second after the shot, you see the sub-sonic impact, then he keels over belly-up, then you hear the thump of the impact, then he pees a leak 2-ft. in the air. LOL
I've looked at that one and am still trying to figure out the difference between the rimfire model and the Leupold VX-Freedom Rifle Scope 3-9x40mm ( https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/1020316114?pid=859800 )

You can find a Swfa under 500 I bought one for 399 on Black Friday sale and occasional see them listed on the internet for around 400 too 500 . A good starter would be there fixed 10 powerI 2nd what Greyfox said. I had a 22 rifle for small target plinking out to 200 yards on the clock. For your purposes and budget, I keep coming back to the SWFA 3-15x42. FIND the extra $$$. There are obviously better options but they cost alot more $$$.
If you haven't already... consider a good range finder. Accurate ranging becomes critical beyond about 100 yards on Pdog size targets when using a 22 lr.
