What are your recommendations?

Thanks,

Man u gots to get the 3-9X 22 Long Rifle Rapid Reticle--see it and the most excellent reticle @ Rifle Scopes - Red Dot Pistol and Rifle Scopes Pride-Fowler, INC. Home of the Rapid Reticle

I'm gonna be getting a Chipmunk Hunter/Silhouette pistol soon in 17 HMR, and when that optic goes on it i'll be killing jackrabbits and crows as far out as i can with it--maybe 300?????

Re: Budget .22LR Long Range Rig

I have a marlin 22 that shoots but not the best 50 yd are are about 2 inch. its about 15 yrs old if a did a glass beading job on the wood stock could them help getting the groups tighter. How about lapping the barrell or bore polishing like using David Tubbs Final Finish/ Kg 2 bore polish? i tested differnt ammo (6 different one worst was 6inch gorup at 50 yd best was 2 in) Trigger has creep and tough can it be redone. Is it worth the time and effort without going to a gunsmith?

Re: Budget .22LR Long Range Rig

Yesterday the wind was doing 0-3mph. At 200 lasered yards, my CZ 452 LH American with a Super sniper 10X scope did very well. 5 rounds of Wolf Match target went inside 1.63". Federal 510's put 6 inside 2.03" and 5 went 1.87". I sighted mine in every 25 yards from 50 to 350 yards. Torqueing the back and front screws helped tighten things up.

It is both economical and fun.

That'll be my long range practice gun for the backyard. That should get me accustomed to dialing for elevation and windage. With a longer barrel it should be pretty quiet. The scope was cheaper than the gun, but not so for the barrel.
I shoot a Remington 40X in .22 LR at as far as I can---about 175 yards when I run out of clicks on my 24x Leupold benchrest scope. It wears the factory 27" barrel that I have fire lapped with the SSS ammo, however I shoot Federal 36 gr. HPs supersonic. Even shooting supersonic, it sounds like my RWS 52 pellet gun in .22 caliber. I think I may put my Baer 20 MOA bases on the 40X to really stretch it out, LOL!
