Scope for a CZ 527 in 22 Hornet??

Can you recommend a good scope for this rifle.I understand the Hornet is limited beyond 150 yards.Will be used primarily as target rifle. Budget is in the $500 range. Thanks.

My first 22 hornet got a Weaver 2X-7X, and it was ideal. On my last 22 Hornet, I had a Leupold 2.5X-8X. The magnification was perfect for varmints out to 200 yds. If you decide on another make of scope, the magnification should be in about the same range.
I tend to favor Leupolds, becasue of the excellent quality of the optics. Burris makes a very good scope. Bushnell Elite is also a very good scope. Any of these will run about $400. The new Weavers and Redfields and Simmons Aetec scopes are all made by Meade Instrument and are pretty good and run about $300. Nikon makes a good scope, but stay away from their lower end scopes. They tend to halo really bad at high power.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

I have a 527 .22 Hornet with the Maple stock. I have a new type of scope on it that was just released and is a FINE scope for a very good price. It is Mueller APV with 4.5 - 14X AO 40mm. It is not so large as to dwarf the petite 527. I have had it for two weeks and have had a number of people look thru it or shoot my rifle with it. If it looses anything in clarity/brightness to the Luepolds, Weavers and such nobody could see it so far. The adjustments are accurate. Now for the good news. It will sell for around $160 I think but if you jump on it right now you MAT get it for $90!! That is what they sold the first batch for and they may sell a few more at that price. The first batch was sold out in about 2 days. I REALLY like mine.

CZ's are fantastic!

I have a CZ 452 trainer and topped it with a Sightron SII 3x9x42 with medium rings. Total tack driver out to 225 yds. They are superbly accurate with Federal champs for the best info on the CZ. Enjoy!
