    I have a .223 I shoot at the range. We shoot 100 and 200 yds. The scope I have the cross hair covers the bills eye at those ranges. Does any one have any suggestions as to what scope I should look at that will help me . I have a TC Venture, it is a bolt gun. I, am not looking to spend a whole lot of money. Thanks for your help.

    I use the Nikon Prostaff scopes. For the price they are pretty good.

    When you say the crosshair covers the bullseye, do you mean it is too thick? I once bought a Nikon P223 scope, I found that the crosshairs were so thin that I could barely see them, maybe something like that will work for you.

    I have a Sightron scope that has a dot reticle for target shooting very very small dot and cross hairs that works great at the distance you gave.

    I had one many years ago that in the center, instead of crosshairs it had a circle attached on all 4 sides by crosshairs. I fell out of a tree, dang it.

    Athlon Optics has several scopes with a floating dot reticle. I have an Ares ETR with the floating dot. It is very small and precise.

    Weaver T-24, or T-36. Both have a fine cross hair reticule or a fine cross hair with a 1/8 MOA center dot.
    The Weaver’s are popular in IBS & USBA competition for those shooters who do not want to spend a $1000 + for a Leupold. Many of competitor have won matches with the Weaver brand.

    Could not find an image of the reticule with the center dot.

    I am only using Amazon for picture examples, but I recommend buying it from someone other then Amazon.

    Probably more than you want to spend but....
    My Athlon Ares ETR has a floating dot reticle that is .05 mil or very small. It is great for precision work. APRS1-FFP-IR-MIL-PWR-1024x512.png

    Keep your same scope and move the crosshairs so it frames the bulls eye just licking the edge of the circumference with the reticles.

    Find a reticle that works for you and then find a scope that has it.
