Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

I don't know for sure but I think the Signature 3/8 and 11mm dovetail rings are only available for the 30mm tubes. Might want to check on that before purchasing a scope

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

Possibly some of you guys haven't been around long enough to know but at one time in this country 22 LR Rimfire matches were held at 200 yards on a regular basis! All shooting was from prone position and with aperture sights! IIRC scopes were allowed but were in a different class for awards! Top scoring ring was 2" and the X ring was 1" diameter! 20 rounds were fired for score. My best was a 198-14X.

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

Shooting long range with a .22 is ALOT of fun. Some of the best ammo i have found for it is Blazers and Peters believe it or not... I have shot ALOT out to 500 yards and those 2 are the ones that have stood out to me. One day i was shooting blazers at 500 yards and had everything dialed in to where i was holding cross hairs on target and hitting, then i switched to cci stingers. and aimed straight at it and was hitting. i was a little suprised. blazer 40gr 1235fps and the CCI 32gr 1640 fps needed the same adjustment.

And yeah its very good practice for shooting long range with other guns. You become super alert to any wind at all when shooting at extended ranges with the .22lr.

Have fun and let us know how it goes!

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

This has intrigued me. I am looking into a new rifle. I am thinking either a Savage mark II BV, Ruger 77/22, or a CZ 452. The savage is the cheapest and I have heard great things about that model. The Ruger is upgradable. Lots of choices. What are you guys using for optics? 1 inch or 30mm?

Myself and my son in law have bought three Savages, one MkII and two TR's. Al three shoot .5" at 100 yards with match ammo. Out of the box and no trigger work. Got rid of my Ruger, and never owned a CZ. 1" scopes are fine with elevated bases or Burris rings. I like the extended focus model Leupold 6.5x20 because it can handle the parallax on the closer shots and not distort the image as the HP rifle scopes do.
