I'm new at using red dot type sights. I have a CZ 455 fs 17 HMR rifle and would like to try a red dot type of sight.  I plan on using it for target shooting, plinking and some prairie dog hunting. I'd like to keep the cost at around $150.oo.  Can anyone help me ?

    Thanks, You are right that a 2 moa dot would cover to much of a dog especially since a lot of dogs will only stick their heads out.  How about a good scope for doing the same. most of my dog shooting will be 100 yards or less, we have a lot of wind in Wy. so a 17 HMR is not the best, but early in the am there's very if any wind.

    This may be a statement of the obvious, but CZ uses proprietary rings (at least my 452 did) that are not cheap.  I have had success with a 2-7x32 on that rifle in that caliber.

    Ooops -- just noticed this is an old thread and I am very late to the party.
