Pull up some .22lr ballistic charts.
Heres a link to the Federal Ballistic Calculator download: http://www.federalpremium.com/resources/ballistics_application.aspx
Take a look at the .22lr bullet drop & wind drift data.
Note the drop for their 40 gr. 1240 muzzle velocity round is -20 inches at 150 yards with a 50 yard zero, and over a 10 inch drift with a 10 mph cross wind.
How much experience do you have shooting your 5.56 at 300-400 yards? Thats what shooting a .22lr at 150 yards would be like. Its why I bought mine (Savage MkII)
. My local range is only 100 yards.
