Default Scope for Savage 22 Magnum Semi Rifle

Any of you guys have a recommendation for a scope for my Savage A22 semi auto rifle? It's a sweet little rifle in 22 magnum and I would like to be able to extend it's range as far as 22 magnum is effective.

do you have a budget or brand preference? 1-6, 2-7, 3x9, 2.5-10, 3-12?

I just put a Leopold 3-9 vx-freedom rimfire on a .22 mag cz 455. I like the vx's glass..its as good or better than the vx2s imho. Haven't shot it yet, but it should work out well.

Planning to to zero it at 100yds, and hoping to get 150+yard shots using the moa reticle.

I’d get the Freedom 3-9x33 EFR or Clearidge Rimfire 3-9x32 AO.

OP, I just stumbled onto this Hawke Vantage 4-12×40 AO Rimfire .22 WMR today
https://us.hawkeoptics.com/vantage-4...re-22-wmr.html

I like Hawkes. Glass is as good or better than the price point competitors, plus they are airgun rated. Slightly heavy, but it has an adjustable optic and a lit reticle calibrated to the drop of a 40 gr .22 mag going 2000fps. I'm thinking about replacing the Leopold 3-9 with this on the CZ

For .22 mag and .17 HMR, I usually use a decent centerfire scope since I am just as likely to shoot at a ground squirrel at 100 yards than at 50 and thus the parallax is best set for 100 yards. Your budget will dictate the choice, IMHO. The Hawke mentioned above would be a good choice for a .22 Mag.
