Ruger Bull Barrel target scope suggestions

Hello, I need some opinions. I have a Ruger bull barrel 22lr with a fajen stock and I am looking for a scope for it. I will be using it from a bench and going out to about 100yrds. I just wanted your opinion what is a good scope for it for under 300.00? I am looking at a nikon3x9x40 pro staff BDC, a redfield battlezone 2-7x34 with bdc, and a mueller APV scope. I know I will get a hundred different answers but just wanting some input on this rimfire target rifle. Oh and also what power 3x9x40 or something bigger?

Thanks

I'm no expert but I'd say a 3x9 is fine. I'd shy away from names like "battlezone" and the like and stick with tried and true manufacturers like the Nikon you mentioned.

You don't need the BDC, there is no bullet drop to compenate for at 100 yards or less. Get the Nikon EFR AO, it focuses down to 10 yards which is another plus.

I put a Redfield Revolution 3-9 x 40 with accurange recticle on a Ruger Light Varmint 10/22. Made in the USA by Leupold - around $200. I'm pretty happy with it.

Here's a short review of the Revolution line.

For 22LR at hundred yards (or even out to 200) I've fallen in love with my Mueller 8x32x44. Target knobs with 1/8 clicks, very fine cross hairs and very small dot. Costs $269 and comes with Bulter Creek-style caps (knock offs, but they work).

I can see 17HMR and 22LR holes clearly out to 300 yards. Very good optics for the price.

Jim, is that the one with the #4 German reticle? I was looking at the APV but the target models are getting a look. I am just worried that they are not as well made as a nikon or redfield.
Thanks

I don't know what a German #4 looks like.

APV is another popular Mueller. I bought this one based on great reviews from the guys on rimfirecentral.com.

It's been on top of three different guns so far, (20in AR, Savage 17HMR and a 1022 now) and if I was on a rock solid $300 budget it would be my first choice.

I have another 1022 I want to buy one for and as soon as I finish two other gun projects I will buy one first thing.

I had the 3-9x40 Nikon Prostaff you mentioned. I was VERY pleased with it. (I traded the rifle to a buddy in exchange for Glock 26 for my Wife)


I have also heard good things about Mueller scopes as well.


Here is a pic of my setup...
