.17 WSM Scope Recommendation
I am obtaining the new .17 WSM Savage BMag 10. I have NO experience at mating scopes with rifles, much less mating a scope with a brand new rifle caliber.
The .17 WSM is a rimfire that sends a 20 grain projectile 3,000 FPS. I understand that the trajectory is flatter than any rimfire made. In the area that I hunt, a 100+ yard shot will be the exception rather than the rule, yet I want to have the flexibility to reach out to 200 yards should I ever take it out west where things are more open.
I want to be able to see coyote size targets in the scope if they sneak within 30 yards, but still have a scope that will allow me to take accurate 150 yard shots as necessary.
I'm only spending $350.00 on the rifle, so I don't want to break the bank with a scope. I'm thinking no more than $200.00.
What would you scope experts suggest for this new rimfire and what size based on my usage, range, and budget? Thank you in advance for your assistance as I need all the help that I can get.
