Not your usual question for the long range face shooters in here, but I digress....
I love .22LR. Being a cheap bastard, I find that I can shoot way more with it, and practice a bunch of skillsets before extrapolating them to the larger caliber weapons I own.
So as such, can I get some recommendations for rimfire optics? I'm planning on using it on a CZ 455 varmint, with bipods attached. I'd like to max out the potential of the rifle and cartridge, so I can work on fine tuning the software part (me). It will also be used for a wife/new shooter/kid trainer and fun gun.
So my criteria (I think) is:
1. Enough magnification and good enough reticle to come close to maxing out the .22LR in this rifle
2. Easy for new shooters to pick up and use
3. I may be way off base here, but holdover lines? 50/75/100/150 lines? Seems extra. I'm well versed on the ACOG/RCO, so something similar to that would be nice (tell me if needed, with such a short range cartridge I really don't know)
4. Cheeeeap. I'd like it to be sub $200, and I'd be reaaaally happy around $150 or below. However I'm very familiar with "you get what you pay for".
