Do you shoot .22 benchrest competition??
Or flies at 100 yards?
Or what?

Not being sarcastic, but many folks buy way too much scope for the intended use they want to use it for.

Because they don't understand scopes, or the use they want to use it for.

There are many pitfalls to buying too much power, unless you actually have a legitimate need for that much power.

Ah!
I thought so.

When I was 12-13, I killed jack rabbits in our wheat fields with a .22 and open sights at 150-200+ yards.

You can do quite well on paper and plates out to 150 with a 4x, 2-7X, or 3-9x scope, and hold-over using the cross-hairs.

No knobs to coon-finger, or dials to twitch.
Just put the cross-hairs on it, hold over a little, and shoot the son of a --- AH, never mind.

At 24X magnification, you will need a bi-pod, sandbags, or tree to lean on to cancel your heart beat and wobbles times 24X.

Then you will be steady enough to hold solid on a 33 gal. garbage can lid, part of the time!!
After you eventually find it through the small field of vision on that powerful a scope.

Thats my story, and I'm sticking too it!

150 yards divided by 24X magnification = 6.29 apparent yards = 18 apparent feet.
You can spit a watermelon seed or flip a pebble flipper that far or more, without a scope!

rcmodel:

appreciate the info but could use alittle more. i've been using 16x at 50 feet and out. time for new scope & thinking about a good variable; so, i would like opinions on brands and models(weaver, bushnell, vortex, burris, etc). however, my eyeballs would like to have access to at least 16x(personal preference).

all reviews much appreciated.

I like the Bushnell Elite and the Weaver Grand Slam.

I have a Nikon 6X24 on my Remington 597 with target barrel. Great scope! You can shoot bottle caps at 100 yards. But RC is right, you can see your breathing and heartbeat move the scope.

realize that. i usually see a figure eight but with a good trigger can time the shot.

how about more info on the weaver grand slam. is this more of a hunting scope?

The best of what you describe would be Bushnell Elite 4200. Coincidentally, I have one for sale, in excellent condition.
