Default Best Optic for a Ruger Precision Rimfire 22LR

Which would be the better optic for the Ruger Precision Rimfire 22 LR, a Vortex Crossfire II 4-12x 44 or a Leupold VX R Patrol 3-9x40? Why? Use: Target / Long Range practice rifle.

For me, neither. I have a couple rifles with the Crossfire II 6-24x, very good for the price. I have several other brands as well, but I always stick to the higher powered scopes for my hand assembled rimfire rifles that are capable of excellent long range accuracy.

I think for pure target work the higher magnification the better.... 4x12 would be a minimum.... 5x15 about right for a .22 cal,,, 5x20 about max on the scopes I have seen or used.... The higher magnification quality scopes are hard for me to justify on a .22 rifle though... Butttttt hitting clays at 200 yards with a good 4x12 scope is a blast..

I am running a Luepold AR mod 1 6x18 on my CZ and it works good for 5 inch groups at 350 yards.
A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you may never need one again.

Depends on how old your eyes are.
My old eyes like higher powers.
California where the only things that aren't illegal are
being illegal and smoking dope. Thanks Libtards .
Found a new home in Northern Idaho. Will sell the Calif home in a year or two.
Screw California.

Bushnell 6-18 x40 with adjustable focus and tactical like turrets is pretty good as a trainer like scope, similar in usage to what youd want in higher power rifle except it has a basic reticle and it is second focal plane which only matters if youre using reticle marked holdovers rather than turret.
