Default New Nikon P-22 BDC scope

I just mounted my new Nikon P-22 BDC scope (2-7x 35mm) on top of my 22 GLENFIELD MOD. 60 (Marlin)

I went to the Nikon Hunting site to get the bullet drop figured out.
http://www.nikonhunting.com/spoton/

I figure a 50 yard zero and the standard .22 LR is 40 grain and 1,200 FPS.

So made a chart for me to print out and tape to the butt stock.

What do ya think?

Well let you know what we think when you post a target at 100 yards, 125, etc. Have fun with it.

Y such high scope rings? The closer the scope is to the barrel the smaller the angle will be to your point of impact... Thus making it easier to hit targets a little closer or farther away... I know we aren't talking about much but they just look a bit to high for me! How much u pay?

Put a sign in your front yard that reads "Gun Free House" & see where the criminals go.

I just had these scope rings laying around so i decided to use them and bought the Nikon scope. Got it from OpticsPlanet.
http://www.opticsplanet.net/nikon-p-22-2-7x32mm-rifle-scope.html
paid $179

Why is the scope so high off the barrel?
1. They were the scope rings I had at the time.
2. Having the scope is 2" above the bore, might make my bullet "float" further down range.

If my scope 0 meets my boar 0 at 50 yards, my bullet trajectory will be moving upward until that point allowing for less bullet drop by the time it floats past the 100 yards. How much this is affected I don't know because the Nikon site didn't take this into account.

ALSO, I can still use the iron sights, clear as day under the scope rings.

Iguana and either a gecko or a anole on the tombstone. I can't zoom in on my phone app.
