Might use a SWFA Super sniper... I hear they have a bunch of elevation.

Also, mount your scope in Burris "Signature ZEE" rings. these will allow you to mount the scope with a downward tilt so you have all of your elevation as "up".
I use these rimgs on most of my rifles.

My 40X rimfire has a Leupold 6.5-20 EFR on it, and by using these rings, I have all of the 42 moa of up available, and I can get to 290 yds with Rem subsonic hollow points.

Spring has sprung, da' creek has riz, I wonder where dem kitties is? Here, kitty kitty kitty.

Catshooter, I have the same EFR on a 280, nice scopes. I agree about the Burris rings, I have them on a couple of guns. I just like the tally one piece set up on a 10/22, It's nice and compact looking.

I was paging through a mag last night and seen an ad for the pride/fowler rapid reticle, I'm going to check out the site and see what it's about.

they shoot well in my rem 597. they stink real bad, foul up the silencer, and jam alot.... they also have about twice the drop compared to rem subsonics for some reason. i didnt think there was that big of a difference in speed. subsonics drop 3" and the SSS drop almost 7... i bet the longer heavier bullet will be more predictable at longer ranges, but i cant even hit the cats at 100 with my ultra-junk $15 scope, so i just use the rem's for now. anyone know of a decent, cheaper scope and rings for the 597? can you get rings that use the dovetail or will i have to use a raised mount?

I couldn't tell much of a difference between those sss and the rem subsonic in noise level through my aac suppressor. I would save the money on the those 60grainers and shoot something else. fun post to read, and I to don't know how a bullet like that bounces off of a chickens head????

Maybe it's not stabilized? Would a flopping 60 grain bullet make it through skin an skull? I would think it should, but maybe since it's so long it has too much area...

I've actually been quite impressed with the terminal effect of the SSS's, I've shot several bunnies and similar sized vermin with em' and they have all been literally rolled by em'. Pretty darn accurate out to 75yds or so too. They are kind of tricky to feed even in a bolt action though, that long nose tends to get bent up when it hits the feed ramp if you try to go to fast, but other than that, I like em'.

Over on Rimfirecentral they are doing all kinds of stuff to improve the performance, it's worth taking a look.
