Default today at the range

Went to the range to get some time in with the new red dot. First one I have ever had. Big difference than crosshairs so practice makes perfect, right. I was shooting my m&p15-22 with a vector red dot with no magnifier. Target was at 25 yards. 25 round clip in each

Looks like a fun day with a new "toy".

I want a turn!

I would try it at much longer ranges. It will be about 3 inches high at 80 yards. I just went through that with my 10/22. I know you were having a blast. I am very happy for you. When you make the final adjustments make them at 50 or 100 yards...

I sighted in my 10/22 at at about 25 yards. I forgot to check it at a longer distance. I shot at a crow about 100 yards away. I hit the limb over his head. I sighted it in again at 80 yards. Today I dropped the same corn eating crow first shot. I like the 4x fixed power scope on my 10/22. It has a wide view and very clear.

I was shooting cci tactical. I didn't have any problems with it. A lot of it was rapid fire and never had one jam. Im going to try mini mags today and see how they compare.

I use the mini mags in a Colt/Umarex M4 and have no issues. Have fun!
