Scope comparisons/recommendations for a rimfire?

Post by kayakingsteve » Mon Jan 16, 2017 7:38 pm

Please forgive me, I've been an iron sight or red dot guy my whole shooting career. Any experience I had with scopes was cheap scopes that didn't hold a zero and that turned me off to scopes in general.

I'd like to try again and deck out my little savage .22 with a nice scope that actually holds a zero, maybe a 3-9 but have no idea where to start. Could someone give me a break down of good basic scopes, which brands offer what general quality? I.e.: is a Bushnell equivalent to a Toyota or a Daewoo? Is Leopuld like a Mercedes? I just have no idea where to start with optics...

Thanks, I'm sure this is a much re-hashed topic...
