Experience with Caliber-Specific Scopes

#1 Post by senorgrand » Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:46 pm

I'm considering joining the cult of 10/22 (praise Ruger!).

Anyway, I'm looking at scopes and wondering if these caliber-specific scopes are any good. Anyone have experience with these in 22lr or maybe other calibers? If they work well, I would consider adding one to an eventual 308 hunting rifle, so getting experince with one in 22 might be a good thing.

Here's the one I'm thinking about:

Nikon P- RIMFIRE 2-7x32 Nikoplex Rifle Scope

Not exactly your answer, but I've got one of these on my 10/22 and am thrilled.
They have an exposed turret version if you prefer that, the APT
Be sure to make good choices when you're being stupid...

Some of the 22 scopes are delicate flowers and can't handle anything that could be called recoil. I had to hunt for a tuff scope for the 45-70 so I could use it more than twice.

Puffing up is no substitute for smarts but it's a common home remedy
