Headshots on squirrels isn't terribly uncommon.

When we got our .22's (as kids) we were not congratulated for putting a hole anywhere in a squirrel/rabbit except the head.  Hunting was for meat and no one in my family ate squirrel brains, so the head was the preferred (should I say, expected) aiming spot.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Several guys over on Rimfire Central have bought the VX Freedoms and I haven't heard or seen anything bad about them. Most are impressed with the clarity of the optics. Optics Planet right now has a good deal going on them. Not sure if this is the right one, but you can start here https://www.opticsplanet.com/leupold-vx-freedom-3-9x33-riflescope.html


"BTW, Wiley, a little birdie told me you'll be needing a new scope sometime soon, yes?"

Hate to rain on your parade, but I have one of the VX II models setting just waiting for the new rifle to come in.

Not at all, just a nod to your new baby on the way :D

I have bought several Mueller scopes. They have been very good scopes at a reasonable price. For range work, I use a couple of Mueller 8-32x44. They run about $225 at Amazon.

I have also heard positive things about the Mueller scopes in regards to quality for price paid, in particular their APV series.

It won't get a lot of respect, but I have a BSA Sweet 22 6-18, with those 3 bullet weight dials and it actually gets good hits at range once dialed in at a known (50yd) distance.

I've had good luck with the Japanese made Weaver Classic scopes.

Yes, I hope to get a V16 one day; I've heard lots of good reports on those for sure.

I just received my Leupold 3-9x33 EFR and am very much looking forward to sighting it in this weekend  ;D

Favorite is the Leupold VX-2 3-9x33mm Rimfire EFR A/O, Fine Duplex Reticle on the four rimfires I use to hunt and plink.

In second Place is the Leupold VX-3 6.5-20x40mm A/O, #66560, Varmint Hunter's Reticle on two paper punchers.

What's nice for me is that I'm new to scopes and although this is on the "budget friendly" spectrum of the Leupold family, compared to my current BSA air rifle 4x fixed, it's quite an upgrade and one that I believe this CZ 452 Varmint deserves :D

The VX 2s are no longer in production. Replaced by the VX Freedom line that's getting great reviews from buyers using them. I'm probably foing that route with my next Rimfire.

Another vote for leupold vxII 3x9x33 efr. Liked it so much bought another one as a spare before they went out of production. Use it on my 452. Went the other route with a weaver t36 for the 455. I have monitor my coffee intake when I use that at 50 yds.

I have this scope on my 455 and love it.  I've never heard of Tract Optics till recently but really like this 4x12.  The glass is very very nice.
