Help Me Pick a Scope for my .17 HMR

So I bought a cheap rimfire scope for my .17 HMR... its a Bushnell $50 dollar setup.

Its ok, but the optics aren't too clear, and 3x9 doesn't seem to have a close enough field of view at 100 yards.

I'd like some recommendations for a scope...cost id like to keep it under 200 dollars. Also, I'd like it to be silver to match my rifle (yeah yeah i know).

Thanks!

I have seen ALOT of bad press for the BSA but...

BSA Sweet 17, calibrated just for .17hmr ballistics. Seems like someone else makes one for .17hmr also. My google-fu is weak at the moment.

I seem to always run either Bushnell (with parallax adjustment, the rimfire model doenst have) or Leupold. I've had a lot of banner series bushnells since they're cheap, they have large objectives and generally pretty bright images comparatively speaking. Nothing seems to beat the Leupold vari-x 3 though. Very bright picture, excellent reticle and the parallax is with the windage knobs so you dont have to reach down to the objective to change it.

I dont think you can go wrong with either series for your rifle but the leupold may be overkill.
