Ok, so I know most of you guys have been at this game for donkey's years, and grew out of "little" rifles yonks ago, but we all have to start somewhere!
So, after a lifetime of shotgunning, I went out yesterday and bought a .22 LR rimfire.
Main quarry will be corvids. Next on the list will be rabbits, possibly lamping. NWP won't allow .22 for fox (although a local keeper tells me he's always used a .22 rimfire for foxes).
Kept it simple. 2nd hand CZ /BRNO Mk II & moderator, new 3-9 X 50 scope & mounts. Together with cleaning kit and 400 rounds of expanding ammunition, the whole package came in at under £300 (plus the VAT, which I'll claim back).
Firstly, what tips can you give me re: zeroing?
Secondly, how to get the best use from what appears to be a very versatile 'scope?
Thirdly, I read in interesting thread on here re: taping the muzzle. Sounded like a very sensible thing to do, but is it ok to do this on a subsonic .22 ?
Also any other advice gratefully recieved.
