Default Long range 22 scope

Im looking for a scope for my savage mark ii long range prodject. I will be shooting at 200 yards mostly. I think i want to have a 100 yard zero and the use mildots for hold over. I want to spend 200 and it has to have the side adjust perilex. So what would you all recomend? Thanks

The .22 rim fire is a dependable rifle at 75 yards. You can expect a drop of 35 to 44 inches at 200 yards. The 300 yard drop will vary around 100 inches. The bullet at 200 yards is sensitive to "Yaw" and even very light wind conditions. I doubt that a Mildot scope would be of much value under these conditions. The Mildot calculations are based on known factors.

I have tested a 22LR while I was sighting in a centerfire rifle. 200 yard shots are possible with a 22LR. You will get frustrated rather quickly with 200 yard shots. At 200 yards the 22LR bullet is wobbling trying to tumble. Over 250 yards the 22 LR is tumbling. You can tell by the size and shape of the hole in the paper what the bullet was doing when it hit the paper. I was using CCI mini mags when I tested the 22LR. You might find ammo that will spiral and cut a clean hole at 200 yards but it will require a lot of trial and error. I used a marlin 60 with iron sights for my testing.

I will be using mostly wolf team match ammo. It has produced the best groups at 100 yards for me. Im not trying to shoot moa groups at that range but rather looking to be able to make consistent hits on my rimfire popper target. I have been shooting a 10" table saw blade at that range and i dont miss that. So now im looking to upgrade my setup to hopefully make it more consistent. Im going to drop this in a boyds tacticool stock that im going to piller and glass bed. And im planning on using the d.i.p. bottom metal. Thanks

For something like you're wanting to do, I would recommend a Simmons 44MAG 7-21x44SF(I believe this is the powers). The Glass used compares to the Aeztec Scopes (Aspherical) for clarity.
I have a Simmons 44MAG in 4-12 on a 22Mag and it's a great Scope for the cost w/SF.

I can recommend others, but don't know if available with Side Focus. BSA Contender or Platinum in 6-24x(?), Mueller APT in 6-24x(?).
All others I can think of is more around the $300+ costs.

I hope you aren't expecting MOA or something like that or expect to pull off a Bobby Lee Swaggert shot/s because you'll have a huge drinking problem if you are and no fingernails or hair left.

Every year I attend a big bore shoot in the south of Australia(Albury/Wodonga) on the border of New SouthWales and Victoria where the Aussie hunting forum I'm a member of holds a 3 day get together with other members from all over Australia and we shoot everything from .22 pistols up to .50 cal rifles plus Black Powder and a cannon.

In that weekend we hold a few comps and 1 is a 200 metre .22 rifle Challenge cup called the "Black Panther Cup" in which you have to hit an A4 sized bit of paper with a black Panther on it in the head and even on a still day it takes a fair bit of luck and guesstimation with the diminutive .22 to hit it in the head.

I'm guessing something in the 4-12x 50 range will be the go as you'll need every bit of magnification you can get to at least get close.

Good luck with it.

If you serious about this get a long range mount with about 20moa of inclination(?) built into it. Most mildot Scopes don't have enough adjustment to handle this amount of drop.

Also the highest velocity ammo you can find will aid you. The bullet becomes unstable as it drops into the subsonic range and starts to yaw. Maybe something like the aquilla interceptor highspeeds would give you enough velocity to keep it supersonic at this range.

Interesting project, keep us updated on your results.

I guess i should have mentioned that i am planning on putting an egw 20moa mount on this. I have to have it drilled and tapped first though. It is an accu-trigger model but the receiver is grooved. Im sending out my bolt tomorrow to have a larger bolt knob put on. That wont help it shooting but it looks good.

I have a savage 93R17 with a Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 4.5-14x44mm.

It is an excellent scope and more than adequate for any .22 rifle.
