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.

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
