    scope for lamping rabbits

    guys just wondering what scopes you guys have on your rimfire rifles for shooting rabbits in the falling light and at night time when lamping????

    Nikko stirling gold crown 4-16x50 on my hmr. It has accounted for thousands of rabbits and many foxes.
    90% of the time its used with a nv unit nowadays

    I always used a Simmons Whitetail 4x40 on my .22 R/F.
    Never had any problems

    I use a leupold 4-12-40, great scope in the day but in falling light I wonder what would be better for sensible money...

    North yorkshire/sometimes down south and occasionally further north
    Try a simmons whitetail classic, they are great at night and not bad money.

    What would be your take on sensible money? Under lamp would a fix mag be better over variable? I'm curious as well.

    I've had variable mag scopes in the past and usually ended up setting them on 6x and hardly ever,if at all,altering that

    Zeiss Conquest 3-9X40 on the .22 and a Swaro 4-16X50 on the .17HMR

    A baby bunny at 90 yards looks small under X9. Not sure how you guys manage on X4

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I usually shoot at 8 mag,never need much more than that.bought a 6-44 eb optimate scope recently,a wee cracker.was wondering about 50mm obj lens with fixed mag,figure a more expensive scope should be better
