Scope for LR .22lr.

In reference to the long range .22lr shooting posts. How about some recommendations for scopes for LR .22lr shooting?

    Wlfdg,

    Now don't laugh but, I've got a Tasco 6-24X42 AO mildot on mine and it works MUCH better than I expected. Dials repeatably , Holds Zero , I can honestly say that I haven't had any issues with it.

    Mike

    No laughing Mike.


    I was thinking of putting my Burris FF II 3-9X40 Ball Plex off my 7RM on my .22LR and upgrading for my 7mm.

    I am going to stick a bushnell 3200 10x40 tactical on my .22 'long range' rig when I get round to it, aiming to shoot rabbits consistently out to 150-200 yards with it if I can. The bushnell has a huge elevation range (90MOA I think) and nice big knobs, glass is reasonably clear and 10x is plenty out to 200... and best of all, it's cheap which is what .22lr is all about.

    Planning on using subsonics, I will need to range each shot precisely as at 150 yards the bullet is dropping 4 inches for every 10 yards, that's a small margin of error to hit a 5 inch high rabbit. Should be good for learning the wind, too.

    If it ain't a first round hit, it ain't nothin'
