Scope for a match grade .22LR

Post by Rich Jordan » Mon Aug 06, 2018 8:23 pm

Back when DCM/CMP was selling them pretty cheap, I picked up a Winchester 52D and an H&R M12. These are single shot very heavy barrel models, and with some small luck I'm going to put them back in service. I've got Redfield sights on them now but I bought Ken Viani scope mounts for both of them. I had used a cheap 24x Tasco on the H&R but it went the way of most cheap scopes and fogged up.

So for 50-150 yard usage, indoor or outdoor, whats a good or proper scope for a match grade .22 rifle like these? It would be nice if it focussed at 25 yards for sighting in but as long as it is clear at least 50 yards, I can work with it.

I like my Simmons 22 Mag. It's a 3-9 and I get the recommendation here somewhere.

I also like my Weaver Classic 2.5-7 x 28.

Don't know if they're appropriate.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

Leupold 6.5-20x40mm EFR.

End of discussion.

Its basically all you see at rimfire silhouette matches.

I've got a Mueller APV on my Savage MK II (heavy barrel). I think it ran about 60 bucks, and it's variable from 4.5-14x. I use it to plink at clay birds out to 150 yds with boring regularity.
