I recently read a thread about some guys who are shooting long range big guns who are building " training rifles in 22 LR. Basically buidling the 22 with the same specs as their big 1000 yard boomers but with the benefit of long barrel lifle, very cheap ammo etc.. Apparently I read that these rifles shot at 200 yards exhibit the same pros and cons of most big 338's at 1000 ?

What are your thoughts , good or bad ? Not sold either way.

Probably the most bad *** looking 22's I have ever seen. Amazing what an A5 will do !

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
