most scopes for a rimfire have the parallex set for between 50 to about 75 yards, where most centerfire scopes are set for 100 yards or more.

if the scope has a way to adjust the parallex, and it goes down to the ranges a person would shoot with that rifle, they can use that scope.

not all scopes have an adjustable parallex.

Simmons trumps Leupold and shooting deer to run off with .22 mag.........are you an anti gunner/hunter going to community college trying to ace some liberal writing course?

Sleep with the professor, save us the forum headache.

Rimfire scopes.................I put a reg 2-7X on my Ruger.
It works but at 25 yards I can't dial it to max power, due to the parallax crap.
Past 4x (at 25 yards) things get fuzzy.

It works, and can be moved to another rig later (you could move a .22 scope as well).

For serious .22 rf work, proly ought to get a .22 rf scope.

Kinda wishin' I kept my 3-9X compact EFR. I had it on a 600 Rem in .243.
Proly shoulda kept that too (but oldest kid didn't want it for deer hunting).


Oh, BTW..................I never had a .270. Owned a fair amount of stuff, as did/do my buds.

Some had .270's.

I never did.

But then I'm just an idiot. An idiot that doesn't shoot an animal unless I'm going to kill it in a humane manner.

You said it not me. Since you have no idea what a cull hunt involves. how can you criticize me? You must be a liberal tree huger if you think deer should be allowed to ruin a mans wheat crop. He has a permit to kill hundreds of deer issued to him by the state. If you think shooting the deer is horrible you have seen nothing.
When a man has nothing to offer but criticism deep down in his heart he knows he is dead wrong.

Moreover, you had the nerve to preach to me what scope to buy but you can't find a 50 yard parallax scope to fix your own rifle. Like I said before you said it and I believe it.

I bought the scope that currently resides on my .22rf because it will most likely be put on a Ruger #1 rebarreled to .35 Remington.

Over 4x on a .22rf it's probably best to run a shorter parallax setting scope, but not doing so doesn't make the scope unusable (esp if it is a variable).

Dial it down to where things are in good enough focus and use it. Kind of a b*tch, but I got 3 shots damn near touching at 25yds with my crap triggered Ruger 10/22 sporter at the max of 7X (Redfield new style 2-7X..........cheapest scope I'd buy). Outdoors I can do it, indoors with lesser lighting I can't at 7X.

Again, I did not purchase that scope to be a dedicated .22 rf optic. Never said I did.

BTW, I have no problem with shooting deer in a cull, I just have problems with how you tell us you do it.

Now I've only killed maybe 75 deer, hell JD, you do that in one night.

We all could post our other experiences, and make it an internet "my pee wee is bigger" contest.
No sense in that, when you'd strap one on and declare a win.

Damn, I wish being a sarcastic old bastard and countering junk science on the web paid more. It's turning into a full time job.

Oh well, I should probably get off my ass and hit the shower, go do something.........so I can report it on here and have you tell me I did it wrong.

If you plan to be shooting over 100y, centerfire scopes should do fine. 22lr ammo is another story though. The standard 22lr ranges are less than 100y. Rimfire scopes are either focused for less than 100y, or have have an adjustable parallax, some down to 10y. I believe 50y is the standard 22lr range. 100y is considered long distance for 22lr target work and quite a challenge. I don't know much about the other rimfire specs and ranges.
