    Scope for .17hmr

    Any recommendations for a scope for my .17.? Not looking at a high end stalking scope here, but something suitable for a couple of hundred quid, prefably with a fine cross hair.?

    Or........You could look at this as an excuse to upgrade a scope on a centrefire rifle you might have and demote the one that's on it now to your .17hmr. Certainly not the cheapest option, but when hasn't spending money on things like this been fun fun fun!

    I think the Hawkes etc are OK for rimfires. Consider Nikon (as opposed to Nikko Sterling mentioned above) - also the Vortex HS range - both very good glass for the money. Finally and as ever, consider better second hand glass over new cheaper glass. There are some high quality bargains to be had and you may find you are doing as Pedro says....!!

    If you want to shoot bunnies at longer range then you want a decent scope. I headshooting all mine and so want to be able to whack the mag up without worrying about whiteout or blurring etc.

    so start at bushnell elites, leupolds, Meopta, think Minox are supposed to be good. Loads of bargains out there secondhand.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
