    So I just bought a Ruger 10/22 tactical target and finally got it in yesterday. I was curious if any of you have a suggestion on what type of scope to put on the rifle? I would like to sight it in a 100yds and be able to adjust wind/elevation on the go. I don't wont to spend over $200 but would be willing to if there is going to be that big of a difference compare to lesser value scopes. Also any recommendations on a bipod? Thanks!

    I like my 8-32x44 Mueller. I have it on a Savage MkII TR. It's really nice to be able to see the 22lr holes at 100y without having to schelp, or leave the shooting position to look though, a spotting scope.

    They have a few under $200 on the Amazon page:

    Lots of people like Weavers:

    Unless you are going to shoot paper all the time I would sight the 22 in at 50 yards. If you sight a 22 in at 100 yards you will be 7" high at 50 yards. I would look for a shotgun scope or a parallax free scope.

    Contrary to popular belief the 22 LR is not a 100 yard cartridge. I would avoid the rimfire scopes like the plague. Even the Nikon/Pentax rimfire scopes are pretty lame.

    This is basicly true. Most of the cheap plinking ammo loses its stability at around 70yards. It you're serious about 100y, you'll need to use subsonic ammo. The 'cheap' subsonic stuff will get you about 1.5" at 100y. One (not me) can get .5" at 100y, but that's with target ammo, in a target rifle, without any wind, by someone who knows what they're doing.

    I have a cheapo Simmons prosport and butler creek covers on my target model. Does great. I can put ten in a dime at 25 yards and ten in a quarter at 50 yards. 100 is a different story. The groups are 3 inches or less. But it was windy the day I shot at 100. Like JD said I have it sighted at 50. It is about 1/4 inch high at 25 yards. I give it 18 clicks and it is on at 100. I made a cheat sheet for 75,100,150, .i was checking out a Nikon P223 for my AR and got interested in the P22. Take a look at that. They are about $150. My Simmons was less than $75.

    get a nice nikon prostaff. 3x9 or 4x12 for under 200. good scopes that would be great for a .22. also look in vortex. they are a little cheaper. i have both and can see the quality difference but if money is tight the vortex works. i prefer the nikon though. as others suggest i would zero at 50yds but its your choice. if all you ever shoot at is 100 then zero for 100.

    Nikon makes a rimfire scope, the p-22. They have one in the Prostaff Line that that says "rimfire BDC-150"....a few others make decent scopes for Rimfire rifles,...

    The first part of this month I was shopping and researching rimfire scopes for a Ruger 10/22 LVT that I had purchased for my daughter in April,I was also looking in the 150.00-200.00 price range.

    After countless hours of researching reviews we (daughter and I) decided on the Nikon Prostaff EFR Target 3-9x40 rimfire scope which was on sale for 149.99
    The scope has an adjustable objective from 10 yds to infinity,hand adjustable target turrets,crosshairs w/a fine dot,and very clear glass. Unfortunately we haven't had a chance to shoot the rifle or actually try the scope to give a performance report on either,hopefully this weekend we'll get the rifle scoped in,and check out the scope to see how it actually preforms.

    Here's a link below of the Ruger 10/22 LVT and Nikon Prostaff EFR Target scope w/ pictures of the scope mounted on the rifle,we used the Ruger scope base and Burris Z rings (med) to mount the scope.

    Good luck with your search.

    Buddy that I went shooting with this past week end had the P22 on his scope. We got it sighted in at 50 yards then zeroed the turrets. Cranked it to 100 yards and we were still hitting our target. 1 liter bottle at 100 yards. We were impressed with it. This is what got me to thinking about the P-223 for my AR.

    I like my Harris S series bypod. I think it extends to 25 inches or so. works great for sitting and shooting prone. it swivels but doesn't pan.proly wouldn't be as stable if it did. if your shooting from 50 round banana clips its the best way to go, IMHO. I've had mine for years now with no problems with it.just watch your thumb when you collapse the legs! its easy to change to other rifles using only a coin.
