Thread: Scope for .22

    Scope for .22


    I have a choice of two scopes to put on my .22lr but would appreciate some of your opinions on the matter.

    Scopes are both Schmidt and Bender. A 6x42 with standard A8 reticle or a 10x42 with a much finer reticle.

    The rifle is an Anshutz that will only be used with subsonic ammo for rabbits.

    They are good scopes to put on a rabbit rifle but they just happen to be spare.

    classic mag for a .22
    point and shoot

    10x is too high
    you will struggle to aquire targets quickly without a serious amount of practice

    fine for the range and longer range stuff.
    as a test see how quickly you can find a tennis ball with the scope when it has been thrown 40 yds

    I have a 6x42 swaro on my wee CZ .22 and it does all I ask, the 10x would be far too much mag for everyday .22 type shooting for me.
