Ruger 10/22

4 posts in this topic

I have a Ruger 10/22 and have been trying to sight it in I have it sighted in pretty good at 50 yards but the problem is when I am any closer I shoot over the top and when I am any farther away I shoot too low so I was thinking about getting a new scope what is a good cheap scope for this gun also how far should I be able to shoot accurately with a gun like this.

It doesn't sound like a scope will help your "high-low" problem...most 22 rimfire loads only achieve a velocity of around 1300 fps...if you zero it at fifty yards it is only normal that it could be a little high at closer distances and as the bullet loses speed and drops at longer distances it will always be lower...you'll probably find the same is true with a new scope on the rifle...Now I'm "guessing" that your shots are maybe a half to one inch "high-low" depending on the distances...if you're talking alot more than that, say out to 70 yards...then yes, a new scope could help...As far as "accurate distance" of a 22 rimfire...for the average shooter it's probably around 60 yards with the short barreled 10/22 ruger. I have however hit jackrabbits as far as 100 yards but it took about 5 shots to figure out the elevation and windage at that distance when I was sighted for 30 yards...As for a scope you can get by with just about anything that gives you the proper eye relief on a rimfire...I have a stainless 3 to 9 tasco (about $50) on top of mine and it works great.

sight it in right on at 100 and anything in between will be just a shade high, shouldn't be more than about an inch, and you will be happy with the results.

Mine is sighted in at 50 yards at 100 yards I hold half way from where the cross hairs go from small to big and at 150 yards hold the cross hairs right at the small to big seperation I guess my 2 cents is get out and learn your gun.

    • http://shareblue.com/every-outlet-wh-banned-from-press-briefing-is-chasing-stories-on-trumps-russia-ties/   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
