Gloves, I suggest you go into Spot On and adjust your sight height. Go in under Customize load and ammo and enter in inches from middle of barrel to middle of scope then enther that number. It really will make a difference in longer range shooting with a 22LR.
As always drop me a note with any question's or problems.

Bart! FROM NIKON!
Big fan!

my Nikon stuff:
3 Nikon Scopes
- Slughunter 1.65-5 x 36 Nikoplex
- Buckmaster 4.5-14 x 40 BDC
- P-22 2-7 x 32 BDC 150 (as you saw)
1 Range Finder
1 Nikon DSRL (+2 Nikon lenses)
Who knows what I'll get next.

QUESTION 1: Does Nikon (or others) sell Flip covers? The rubber bands aren't fun to take off and put back on. I'll take 3 sets please. (Nikon has strange curved-ended bells, not sure if the other off-brands will fit.)

QUESTION 2 (not as important): The spot on software is great (Even better now that I know about the sight height)... Why do I have to enter my info every time I use it? Can't I just get a username/pass or have it remember my computer? Not that big a deal. Thanks for the support.


Now i need to change the numbers i taped to the side of my rifle.
2x 102 - 157 - 206 - 274 - 335
4x 76 - 109 - 137 - 177 - 214
7x 62 - 84 - 102 - 129 - 154

Butler creek has ones that should work fine. I don't have the number's for you but this info will help. Glad to hear you are happy with your P-22, now if I can just get 1 !

P-22 2-7
ReticleBDC 150

Tube Diameter1 in.
Objective O.D. (mm/in)42.3/1.67
Eyepiece O.D. (mm/in)44/1.73


I hear what you are saying about entering your information in every time, we are working on making it open to the last setting's you used. Hopefully soon.

Bart

I read that the .22lr drops below the speed of sound at 68 yards, and from that point on experiences severe wobble. Zero at 100 yards takes the poa hold over guess work out, any truth in that? I zeroed at 100 yards and have great accuracy, but its the only distance I shoot my .22 at. I am looking for a scope with magnification to get me out to 300 yards. The bdc looks good,I wont need to zero at every 100 yard increment. Looking forward to the op range report.
