Yup. Can definitely be done with a good rifle and scope this shouldn't be a problem.Jake said:Wait, .22lr????
I don't think you can go wrong with Nikon. I'm a big fan of their scopes and they are reasonably priced. Just make sure that you get something with enough power to see out to 200.whiptail said:I am looking for a scope for my savage mk2 .I want a nikon prostaff with bdc (have one on my ar and love it).my question is which 1 to buy for target out to 200-300 yards.should I just buy the biggest I can afford?please help.
I disagree. With the right rifle, round and scope, you could plink all day at 200-250. I've seen it done with my own eyes and I went out and bought the same rifle my buddy was shooting that day.joey52685 said:.22lr tends to have a max effective range of 150yds

What are defining "effective" as? You can certainly punch a hole in paper a lot further than 150 yards with a .22.joey52685 said:.22lr tends to have a max effective range of 150yds
If there's another meetup I'll bring it for you guys to shoot. I have allot of guns and this is my current favorite to shoot. At mitchel field you can only get out to 25 yards but this thing was shooting through the same hole. I like it soo much I was gonna get another to play around with the stock & trigger and try to really test the distances.joey52685 said:I stand corrected.
The biggest concern at that distance is wind. If you have a beautiful day then you can have a beautiful day of shooting. 8)sherm66 said:What are defining "effective" as? You can certainly punch a hole in paper a lot further than 150 yards with a .22.
That's what I'm talking about!! except with a scooped bolt action.VolkoSupply said:22 lr shooting out to 250 yards at a 24 x 24 x 1/4 " thick steel is a total good time...you get the report of the rifle and then the 'ting' sound from the steel comes back in to you...way more fun with iron sights and 5 spaced out shots with a semi auto...large black shoot and see target attached with the plate painted white ...you can see the hits with a 24 X x 60 mm spot scope no problem...you learn kentucky windage real quick....orange glow paint a can of shave cream, shake well , hang from a string and you really get to see when you hit the can with a optic 22 rifle ....
I want to zero at 50 so Larger objective?I do not know much about scopes so please bear with me.ASSAULTFUN said:You could shoot 22 with a 12x at 200. I think It's more A matter of having enough vertical adjustment in the scope to zero at 200
5 shots at 200 with a .22 getting 1 1/2" grouping? impressiveheartlessmcfly said:I've shot my marlin 80g at 200 yards and was on paper every shot...was a bit windy that day. Using a rim fire scope, 3x9. Can see just fine on a reactive target
