    Well let you know what we think when you post a target at 100 yards, 125, etc. ;) Have fun with it.

    Anyone else use the Nikon BDC reticule?

    Y such high scope rings? The closer the scope is to the barrel the smaller the angle will be to your point of impact... Thus making it easier to hit targets a little closer or farther away... I know we aren't talking about much but they just look a bit to high for me! How much u pay?

    Put a sign in your front yard that reads "Gun Free House" & see where the criminals go.

    I just had these scope rings laying around so i decided to use them and bought the Nikon scope. Got it from OpticsPlanet.
    http://www.opticsplanet.net/nikon-p-22-2-7x32mm-rifle-scope.html
    paid $179

    Why is the scope so high off the barrel?
    1. They were the scope rings I had at the time.
    2. Having the scope is 2" above the bore, might make my bullet "float" further down range.

    If my scope 0 meets my boar 0 at 50 yards, my bullet trajectory will be moving upward until that point allowing for less bullet drop by the time it floats past the 100 yards. How much this is affected I don't know because the Nikon site didn't take this into account.

    ALSO, I can still use the iron sights, clear as day under the scope rings.

    Iguana and either a gecko or a anole on the tombstone. I can't zoom in on my phone app.

    I don't understand what you mean by float...

    If you were to take your gun and mine which is mounted close to the barrel and we both had a 50 yrd zero, we were to then shoot at 40yrds and 60yrds my gun would be closer to the POA than yours since you have a higher angle from your scope to your 50 yard zero.

    Like I said its not like it's a whole big difference..

    But anyways I dk how your comfortable shooting with it that high up... Do you rest your cheek on the stock or rest your chin? The tighter and more locked in a gun is to your shoulder and face will make you more accurate.

    Put a sign in your front yard that reads "Gun Free House" & see where the criminals go.

    1 of 2 right. You fell for the trick. the Anole is fake.
    2nd animal is a little more hidden.

    Hockeyjr, I see your point, the further the scope is from the bore line is going to be more difficult to pinpoint exactly where the impact will be the further away from the 50 yard zero.

    Float / fling / lob ... hard to explain. i'll try to draw a graph.

    i also had the same thought it seems a bit high. my thoughts were not completely based on the trajectory as that isnt as big a deal as you said. but how can you get a repeatable cheek/stock weld when shooting?

    I'm not sure yet. I'll find out when I go to the range.
    So far it feels fine just in practice.


    There are 2 animals in there:

    Hint: the squirrel on the stock, the lizard on the sign don't count.

    Nikon BDC scope

    That is a great looking set up you have.

    I have a Nikon BDC scope on my Marlin X7VH 22-250. It is a 4-12 x 40.

    I like is very much because the first indicator is the cross hair, after that circles. I only have mine zeroed at 100 yards because I have no place to shoot more that a 100 yards at the present. I have mine at two inches above dead center at 100 yards. I will soon be joining a shooting club that has shooting ranges up to 600 yds.

    Have fun.

    Dearhunter, 600 yards, that sounds like a great idea. I'll have to look into that.

    Said I was going to make a chart...
    I used the Winchester calculator to show the difference in "sight height" and a possible reason why my scope is so high above the barrel.

    BTW, on my SCAR-17S... the sight height is 3.25" above the barrel!

    Well done chart - I had a similar set up - it was back in the day when scopes were not entirely trusted and access to iron sights could save a hunt or provide short range work. ( scope zeroed long - iron sights short)

    It didn't really work well but I still like the theory. :D

    Sheppard scopes used the circle concept w 50 yd zero for 22 LR and I heard good things about them - but they were using semi-auto and could walk rds in. Once you find the hold, you can ring the steel all day.
