    Rifle scope for 22LR

    There is something to be said for decent, simple scopes. I have a Zeiss Dialyt 4x36 on my .22 sub 12 ftlb air rifle.... (Yes I'm an optics tart...)
  2. I enjoy shooting my .223 but if only going for one rifle I'd go for .243 or 6.5x55 for use with deer if you choose at a later date
  3. Hello folks, I have a rather “happy” set of problems I’d appreciate your wisdom on Myself and a good shooting buddy took my wife and 3 friends to the guest day at Bisley last Saturday shooting at 200yds. Weather was great and everybody had a good time. Sun even shone and we had an ice-cream ½ way through! Buddy brought along his RPA in .308W with a 8-32x56 Nightforce, 6-9” Harris Bipod I brought my CZ527 American in .223Rem with 3-9x36 Swaro, 9-13” Harris Bipod Now, I learned a few things from my wife about my kit – I need more mag – I have a 3-12x50 Duralyt I can use but I’m thinking that might not be enough. Anyone used the 6-18x50 Meopro? (Also suspect tall, clicky turrets might have some appeal). Need to fill my rear bag more – already ordered more beads from ebay Stock too low. Thinking of buying one of those Tourbon cheek risers with the foam inserts for changing the height (I really like the stock as it is). Anyone used one? Bipod too tall – Anyone tried the 6-9 Sniper Systems offering? ATB, Scrummy

    Rifle scope for 22LR

    I would say something like a Nikon 3-9x40 EFR would do you very well

    Bradders, I know, I have an SCC too. The bolt comes out easily on my rifles, so why would I not? If pop into get a cuppa or head to the shops on the way home, it's going to be in a pouch in my pocket anyway. I get why with certain stock types and actions (eg your excellent straight pulls) can be a bear to get the bolt in and out of easily, particularly on a firing point. But why not make your life and the RO's life easy? Anyway, enough. Enjoy your shooting!

    True, just helps make it a bit clearer for the ROs and I don't think that's a bad thing. Scrummy

    Right, so, here are some photo's of the updated CZ527 Scope is a Duralyt 3-12x50, Sportsmatch mid height mounts and a tourbon cheek riser to meet the request for more mag and being easier to see through the scope. So, some pictures: Bolt handle clears, just Cheek riser and bullet loops: Cheek riser is variable in height using these inserts: Which sit under the flap with the bullet loops: With riser in place, you can't quite get the bolt out. But with the foam insert out and flap open, you can (makes it easier for Bisley) So, all in all, just need to get it zeroed now! Thanks to Kalahari for the assistance and rings! Scrummy

    Bradders, lighten up. Teasing you about CSR is becoming something of a discipline in it's own right

    Dear boy, sporting rifle is the only discipline

    I suppose it is the "F1" of target rifle shooting

    Hello folks, well, cheek riser has arrived so I foresee some playing around with scopes and rings tonight! Scrummy

    Rabbits and .22

    Another plus for the RWS subs

    Well, don't know if it will turn into F-Class but would certainly be a much more competent set up for plinking. And if my good lady wife enjoys shooting it, what's not to like!

    Hello folks, well, picked up the Duralyt, ordered a Tourbon cheek riser with differing inserts for height and thanks to Kalahari some rings to try out. I shall let you know how I get on! Might try switching things round tonight. Scrummy
  17. Great little lever action .22lrs. Had one and really enjoyed shooting it. Good luck with the sale

    That is the plan! Already been looking at rings to do that

    Cheers Snakeman. I have the Meopta 6-24x56 on my 7x64 which is one heck of a scope. Good to hear the that the meopro is good if necessary. I have also seen this advertiesed and I am trying not to be tempted...

    Mod covers

    Do these cut down on mirage?

    That's also good to know! Kalahari has a fixed Tourbon one that I shall look at this weekend. I can see one being ordered on Monday.
