At 100 yards I can hit 9mm brass routinely and it is almost at the bottom of the scope's elevation limits. It would be nice to have a custom turret for it and shoot it out as far as it will go.
I made my own custom turret. Nice solid oak. The best part....it only cost me 17 cents for the set screws. It has a hand marked turret label on it now.

Cool Idea for the turret!!!

Killahog, I will try to post a picture soon; I got married and have moved and it looks like most of my guns will stay with my parents---Long story, but I WILL try to get you a pic soon!

Browning 52 target sporter with ely HP sub sonics, leupold vx3 3-9 with target knobs

Ruger 10/22, power custom trigger, 30 MOA scope base, Tac Sol barrel, houge stock, burris 4-16 signature in sig zee rings with inserts, tac-2 elevation and windage knobs.

I used the second rig to take a rock chuck at 256 yds a couple of weeks ago with winchester 40 gr HP sub sonic ammo. Witnessed by my dad and brother. with this combo 100 yds is easy, 150 regular, 200 challange, and 250 possible. it is pretty fun playing with these .22's at longer ranges, puching the limits of the equipment and shooter.

Blazer works well if you high grade your ammo and only shoot the stuff that weighs out around 50.5 grains give or take a couple tenths of a grain.

The CZ 452 walks all over the Ruger 10/22 at long range....but what do you expect? Totally different types of gun, and QC is still alive and well in the Czech Republic it would seem.
There isn't much that will hang with a 452. At least, nothing that I've found. That is, unless you really are willing to spend some $$$. I looked at the same scope for my 17HMR. How are you liking it?

I had a Burris Timberline on my Browning T Bolt and loved it! It was way brighter than it should be considering how little the objective is, it had TONS of eye relief, was nice and sharp for a $200 scope, and it could focus down to 7 yards which made close range target shooting on 14 power possible. For the money I think it is honestly probably the best rimfire scope available and I would not hesitate to use it on a lightweight mountain rifle either. Everybody that looked through mine was really impressed especially considering I bought mine used for just over $100.

If you put it on your 17 you will love the Ballistic Plex reticle. You sight the crosshairs in at 100 yards and the next line is 150, then 200, then 250, and the post is 300. These holdover spots were dead on a few years ago when I shot with the same scope on my 17 but recently I swear the 17 ammo is getting faster because everyone I know is shooting higher at longer ranges than they were just a year or two ago. I've had 3 people tell me the same thing but maybe we are just all crazy. hahaha

Re: What 22LR is you favorite past 100yds?

While at USA Nationals a few years ago we went to one of the public ranges on Fort Benning and a buddy and I were going for an 6x6 plate at 300M. We didn't change anything as we still had competitions. I had my Anschutz 2013ALU and he had a Feinwerkbau something. With open sights and 28mm riser blocks (looked through the slit where it mounts to barrel as front sight) I hit it twice in about 40 shots and so did he. It was a pain with the wind blowing that day but we had a load of fun.
