Default ruger 10/22 takedown

Hello all.
I placed an order for the ruger 10/22 takedown and I'm looking to get a nice scope for it. I've been looking at the leupold vx-r 1.25-4x20. I'm looking to do some target shooting out to 100-150 yards. Am I looking in the right direction? Any opinions and feedback would be appreciated.

Over 100 yards with a 22 is a challenge even for a bolt action target rifle on a bench rest. Are you looking for 1" groups at 150 yards or 6" groups?

The Takedown is a nice rifle & I want one, but not for target shooting.

Thank you. I was wondering if that range was even possible. This will be my first 22, so I'm very ignorant to what its able to do. I own a m&p 5.56/223 and that's been my only experience with a rifle. Thanks for your feedback!

That looks like a very capable round. This is actually the first time I've heard of it. Thanks

Pull up some .22lr ballistic charts.

Here’s 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? That’s what shooting a .22lr at 150 yards would be like. It’s why I bought mine (Savage MkII). My local range is only 100 yards.

That's an excellent link. Thanks for posting it. I've never taken my 5.56 out over 200 yards but I'd like to some day. Thanks again for your input.
