Here she is Vortex 6-18x44 Crossfire II  Dead-Hold BDC reticle. I had to use Xhigh mounts because the scope rail has 30 MOA added to it for longer shots.

Nice. Watched a video by .22 plinkster where they were engaging (and hitting) steel out to 500 or 600 yards.

Was pretty neat to see that.

Very nice. I was able to get my vortex 4-14 to clear with medium height Burris XTR rings, but your AO scope will probably need more room than that.

Looks great though, I will be getting mine out here soon.

I spent four hours peering through one of those today......I love the eye relief on them. They are a very good scope for the money.

**snip** the scope rail has 30 MOA added **snip**

 

Did you add that rail or was that the built in one?

from Rugers webpage on the rifle:  "Anodized Picatinny scope base includes 30 MOA elevation for increased long-range capabilities out of the box."

I shot mine Maverick's extensively last week. I was shooting Thunderbolts but it was stacking them tight. Heck, I was impressed they all went off, putting them in tiny groups was a bonus as far as I was concerned. 

 

I have heard some people who are not impressed with the accuracy but I think they have some unrealistic expectations based on centerfire rifles capability. 

 

I have a Vortex Viper PST 4-16 on it. I have to say it was pretty cool watching mosquitoes flying around the target and waiting for them to land so I could splatter them. It was hot, it was humid, and for a while there I was Carlos Hathcock, hunting the Apache, bloodthirsty beotches.

 

Mav is going to be pretty upset when they make the RPRR in .17HMR and that scope ends up on MY rifle instead of his.

He really like the likes on his videos. And it demonstrates why I cant afford to hand him a semiauto with more than 1 in the magazine. Hes quick on the trigger.

You know how to fix that don't you?

Make him pay for his own ammo. It teaches him to value each round, and to make them count.

Just shot mine to get it on paper with the scope I plunked on it. Used CCI Standard Velocity, and didn't even try to do any refined tuning, as it was just @ 40yds, but I was itching to pull the trigger. Put a 1" dot on a paper plate and hung it in the trap. Shot off my deck railing w/o any bag rest or even a place to sit, just stooped over with my fingers between the rail and the railing. Five rounds to get in the black, and the next four followed the fifth (only had 9 in the mag for some reason :dontknow: ).

 

Needless to say, I'm already impressed. The shot cycle is smooth, the trigger is excellent, and with sub velocity ammo and no noise at the ejection port it's surprisingly quiet. I could shoot all day w/o hearing protection and it wouldn't bother me a bit.

 

I can't wait to take it out to my 100yd range to see what it can do. It's been drizzling half the day (not complaining because it's been dry as dust here), the temp is around 80° with 75% humidity, so it's unpleasantly warm and sticky out there right now. If I don't get out tomorrow morning it'll be a few days before I have another chance.

I had mine out this weekend, and finally got it dialed in. I was quite impressed after getting it dialed in. CCI standard velocity worked well, but mine really likes the wolf match target.

My last 100yd group, zero wind and about 80 degrees.

Shifted gears with mine a bit. The scope I put on it first wouldn't focus close enough for a lot of .22LR work, so I took it off and mounted a spare Athlon Talos BTR 4-14x44 FFP that I had sitting here. I haven't hit the 100yd range with it yet because it's been pretty breezy and threatening rain all day, but I did get it sighted in @ 50yds, so if Mr Feral Cat or Mr Coon show up it's ready.

 

With any luck, I'll take it out this week sometime to shoot it @ 100 & 150yds and figure out the necessary dope to dial in for those ranges. I set zero on my turrets @ 50yds, so all changes will be dialed from there.
