Adjustable parallax for .22lr

My Kidd Supergrade will be arriving next week and I want to get a good quality 4.5-14 or 4-16 scope with a minimum parallax adjustment of less than 100 yards. The only ones I know of are the Leupolds but I'm not a big fan of them as far as value for the dollar. I don't mind spending $300-$500. Any suggestions?

The Tasco scopes, with parallax adjustments, are often on sale for around $100.
In daylight, they're plenty good.
Lock the doors, they're coming in the windows.

Mine are so old the model names have probably been superseded.
But check the usual suspects to see what's offered.
The online stores, especially
Opics Planet
Any local stores that carry scopes,
I've yet to get an unsatisfactory Tasco scope.
And never had to pay anywhere near retail.

I've had mixed results with Tasco. Some worked well out of the box and some did not. Actually I went through many lower cost scopes when I began silhouette shooting. I finally had to spend over $400 for a turret target knob Leupold and then got the performance I was looking for. Oddball sort of arrangement to have a $200 rifle and $455 scope, but it works. Trophy is on the shop shelf.

I've only had a couple of Tasco scopes, and they worked fine. The 6-24 that I had on my varmint gun was great during the day, but early morning and late afternoon it was too dim. Today, both my 'good' 22's carry old Leupold 2-7's without adj parallax. If I was target shooting with a 22, I'd get the adj objective scopes.
