    Scope for .17HMR

    As the title surgests, I am looking for a new scope for my .17HMR. I currently have a 3-9x40 BSA which has actually been very good and I have got on well with but Squirrels do look awfully small at 100yards + so would like something with a bit more magnification whilst not costing more than 200 and not swamping my nice handy short barreled CZ.

    Recomendations please!

    Try this site have their VO Counterpunch 6-25x56 FFP Scope in my .17HMR and like it a lot. I recently looked into getting the VO Monarch 8-32x56FFP for another rifle I want to get and was quoted, USD 245 per set including express shipping, one piece tactical weaver mount, flip-up caps and honeycomb sunshade. I think that they are good valye for money. There will be many opinions, each to their own.

    If they are too small at 100yds try getting closer You dont say how much magnification you're thinking about but Uttings have a deal on a Nikon Prostaff 4-12x40 for 119 with a bdc ret which might be worth considering.I have a Nikon Monarch on my hmr and I can't fault it.

    They also have a Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 for 199.99 with a mildot ret.

    try - you can pick up a leupold for 209

    otherwise the Hawke panorama scopes are very good rimfire scopes - I've got the 4-12x40 on my CZ at the moment and it's ideal - cheapest place is believe it or not!

    I have a bushnell legend 5-15x40 in the for sale section that would suit your needs.

    I had it on my 22-250 and I have another on my hmr.

    Thanks for the input guys. Yes, looking for somting that can go up to a minimum of 16 Mag so I can really make the most of the ability of the .17hmr's range. Pref with turrets.

    I have had Bushnell scopes in the past and have been very impressed. I hear good things about the MTC range and also the Falcon Menace scopes. Any of you folk had any experiance with these?

    MTC Genesis is a very good scope indeed for a 17HMR.

    I found the MTC's to be very eye-critical - not a lot of good for me in the field as always seem to be at a slightly odd angle!

    Simmons WTC or a Bushnell will do. Ive had MTC scopes and found they white out when it starts getting dark
