Hi,
Complete newb here. Recently bought a ruger 10/22 carbine ( Big 5 special).
Wife bought me a nikon p223 3x9x40 for my B day after showing her one and mentioning what a great scope it is. Didn't think she would go out and buy me one.)

Is this scope overkill for the ruger? Is this question overkill?
Thanks

Nice scope...use it!

Overklll? No! I have a 4-16x Mueller APV and many use 24~36x glass. Thank the wife and enjoy shooting!

Defintely not! Just check out SPot On to dialin the scope to your 22 LR ammo.
You'll be very happy I think!

Here's a pic of a 3-9 on my 10/22, shoot's light's out, all stock!
