You won't be able to click up at that far unless you have a very, very specialized scope on your 22.

First we must have a bet as there isn't one yet. I'm currently trying to rig everything up and will make a video asap for all of you.

Second I do not have a drop chart and even if I did have one it wouldn't be the same in your gun considering barrel length and terrain. Also I do not know the BC of the bullets I am shooting. They are either Federal 36gr HP or CCI Stingers.

I assure you 100% that there is no BS in this post. You can believe what you wish.

The approximate BC of the Stinger is going to be about 0.084 - Very Very low.

sighting in at 100 yards ( the most you would be able to is about 150 with a standard 22 scope). you would be hitting no less than 360 feet low. Oh, and the maximum distance that bullet could possibly travel is only about 1400 yards at a 70 degree angle. All of these calculations were from JBM. I don't like to call people BS'ers, but I think it's getting a little deep here.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

High velocity (supersonic) .22 ammo goes transonic at around 80-100 yards, if anyone is interested
