What Scope For .223

Why not go for a Vortex Diamondback scope.
I was after a new scope for my .22 rimmy, and I had about £250 to spend.
After reading numerious good reviews about the Diamondbacks optics, and the excellent life time non quibble guarantee, I bought the new updated 3-12X42 HP side wheel diamondback. The scope has got a 1'' tube and comes with a decent front sun shade as standard. I paid £256 from a company called riflecraft, and the scope arrived the very next day.
What swayed the decision to buy the Vortex for me was, I popped in to my local gun shop to look at a few different model scopes, and the old model diamondback, literally blew the others away. The image was so clear I really could not believe it. And with the added bonus with the Vortex life time guarantee of replacing or fixing the scope, what ever the reason, I really do think that you can't go wrong,

Go for the prostaff, 3-9x50, get the bdc reticule, go on the Nikon site and download the print off with your load/bullet, they are a brilliant scope, I have one on the .243 and unless I was in the states shooting 500yard prairie dogs, more mag is not needed, for foxes and deer out to 300 yards and beyond

U can never have to much scope
Yes .223 is overkill for corvids and rabbits but u won't be hitting many rabbits at 200+ yards with ur. 22 And
It's all about kicks and giggles
