Well you need to put some things in order to determine that.

Tube diameter
Objective diameter

Based on what kind of shooting you will be doing. Once you have these in order then you can make choices.

Example on one of my new $400 rifles I am looking for a scope right now. While I would love to have a I am not willing to spend $1300 on one. I have decided I am willing to spend up to $300. I want some kind of ranging reticle so that limits my choices even more. I have come up with about 5 that will work. Now I am trying to decide which one of those I want weighing cost vs quality.

Yet on one of my AR's and one of my M1A's I have each wear one of, 4-14x50 30mm SF Tactical Scope Standard MP-8 Dot Reticule and I would have no problem throwing down for one again if I need that kind of scope. I have an Armalite AR-30 in .300 Win Mag that will be wearing, 6-24x50 35mm SF Tactical Scope Illuminated MP-8 Dot Reticule sometime this year.

The scope I'm looking for help with is going on a target barrel 22LR bolt action.
I plan to use it for bench and competition
15-200 yards. I'm not sure about the objective dia.
I DO NOT plan to shoot in low light. So I'm thinking a 40mm will work.
Cost wise $200.00 range. Not including mount hardware.
Quality~ I've heard good things about 'Simmons' scopes. I have one on another rifle.
Tube diameter? Don't know why thats important. Nothin fancy 1" or 30mm is fine by me.
Retical~ Anything but mil-dot style. I have one on another rifle and I like the Truplex retical in the link I posted, better.
Features. Like the link. I don't need 'bullit drop'.
