Default Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 for 10/22 22lr?

Hello everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm on my 10 day wait for a Ruger 10/22. I decided to look for scopes and I picked up a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 Matte NP from Bass pro thinking it would work well for a 22lr (very clear glass). Well I got back to work and started to realize that this may have been the wrong scope for a 22lr. I believe the Parallax setting is at 100 yds. How do I find out for sure?

I found the model Nikon Prostaff #6721. Parallax 100yds. Should I swap it out for one set to 50 Parallax?

I think you're over- thinking it. The prostaff is a great scope and its nice and clear. You can shoot 22lr at 100 yds pretty easily anyway. Slap it on there and enjoy it

So no need to exchange it for a scope set at 50 Parallax?

Man, the internet made it sound like it was serious problem.

You know Nikon has a scope specifically for the rimfire and catering to the 22 LR, check it out and I believe it may be a couple bucks cheaper.

It utilizes Nikon's new SPOT-ON SOFTWARE!

Stick with it and don't change. And just for the future, Nacthez Shooters Supply has great deals on refurbished Pro Staff scopes. You can save a great deal of money and still get a quality scope.

The internet is like women in that they both make problems out of nothing. If you decide that you want a different scope for your 10/22 in the future that Prostaff will do quite well on any big game rifle.

^^^BINGO. I sometimes wonder about not telling anyone b/c I'm afraid people will catch on. lol. Natchez has all sorts of great deals on what are called refurbs but if you do some google-fu you will find that many/most of the refurbs are simply scopes that sat on Cabelas shelf (or any other retailer) in the box and were sent back b/c they didn't sell. Once I found that out I felt a lot more comfortable going that route. Interesting I read that leupold chooses not to resell them b/c they don't want their brand being associated with refurbish. I would guess that it would imply that the refurb'd scopes needed repair and Leupold doesn't want that in consumers minds.

Do you think my prostaff would be ok on a Remington 700 .308? That's my next rifle.
