Default Opinions on Nikon P22 rimfire Scope for CZ455

Thinking about the Nikon P22 scope for my CZ 455 American .22LR rifle (a bolt action rifle). Any opinions? This is the link on Amazon

It all depends on what you're going to use your rifle for. If the plan is for a hunting rifle I'd probably go the Prostaff 3-9x40 rimfire w/BDC route. Unless something has changed at CZ there is no advantage to a small scope because they have to sit so high. If the plan is for a target rifle then I'd save up for a better and more powerful scope.

+1 for sholling. Unless your set on exposed turrets, take a look at the Nikon EFR. Its a 3-9x40 with an AO down to 10 yards. Nice scope for any 22.

Exposed turrets on a .22 lr scope is silly, and mostly for looks.

Get the Nikon 3-9 BDC 150 rimfire scope.

Unless you... I dunno... shoot at more than one distance and don't want to fiddle with the caps and dinky turrets.

I like mine on my Ruger 10-22. Easy to dial in different distances, clear glass for what it is. I am a fan of this for any .22lr rifle personally.

I have it on my 10 22 . works well for me. Zeroed my at 75 yards. The fast action dials works well. I had two targets set up at 75 and, 100 yards. First shot at 75 was dead center. Turned the elevation turrets to the 100 yard mark it hit 1 inch of the center.

The Nikon 3-9 BDC rimfire scope reticle has hold over points at 75, 100, 125, and 150 yards. You zero it at 50 yards, and use the holdover points no need to mess around with dials.

Works good too, I like mine.

BDC reticles don't work too well if you ever change the ammo. Plus, it's 75, 100, 125, and 150 for one specific round, anything else and those holdovers could be slightly off or way off. Of course the difference(whether or not it's something you notice) depends on what sort of shooting you're actually doing.

My point is, that exposed turrets are hardly "silly" and certainly not for looks, if they're a feature you want. The fact that it's going on a .22lr does not make any scope exempt from exposed turrets having a use.
