Pretty easy. I was wondering if the MP 15-22 could make head shots on small game at roughly 25-35yds.

Figured it'd be cheaper to buy just the one rifle instead of one for game and one for fun.

Thanks!

Yea it would do that just fine, especially if paired with a decent red dot sight.

I was actually leaning toward a 3x9 for this.

I may swap it out for a good red dot when I run my steel shooting sessions.

A 3-9x is a good bit too much for that gun. A 1-4x or even a fixed 4x is more than enough.

My 15-22 has a Weaver classic 1-3X mounted on a primary arms AR mount. This is a great set up. The last trip i only saw 5 squirrels, but had 4 head shots. The head shots were from 15 to 35ish yards. It is very easy for head shots with this set up. I was surprised how easy. I knew the gun shot great groups, but wow. My mod 60 might not ever go out again.

I don't think you need more than 4X for squirrel. My mod 60 has an bushnell 4X that does great. The Weaver 1-3X is more than i need. The Weaver has better glass.

The Weaver 1-3X is usually $170ish at MidwayUSA. If you use this months coupon code it is another $15 off. The PA mount is $25ish.
