Legacy Reviewer's Review of Tasco 2.5-10x42 Target / Varmint Riflescope Rifle scope

I bought this scope for my Browning SA-22. Today I took it to the range and boresighted it. I was shooting CCI 40 grain Velocitor rounds and Federal bulk pack 36 grain. The weather was sunny with an occasional passing cloud.
After boresighting, the scope was shooting dead nuts after 9 rounds. Average 3-shot groups were less than one inch at 50 yards. Both brands of ammo performed well.
The optics and magnification are excellent. Windage and elevation knobs are adjustable with gloved hands, a feature I really like. Parallax is also hand-adjustable, a sophisticated feature for a .22 rifle.
CON:
The mil dot scope was originally developed for military snipers and should provide range as well as an aimimg point. On this scope, the mil dots do not change size as the magnification changes, which greatly complicates the ranging function. However, if you're good at math and don't mind carrying a calculator in the field, or a sheet of paper with pre-calculated values, you can make it work. There is also a commercial pre-calculated table that you can buy and that will fit in a pocket.
I have been a fan of Tasco for 20 years because they deliver value for the money. This scope is no exception.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Hard to use for ranging
