Hey guys, im new to this forum
i am a user of Caraudioforum.com and well... of coarse that wont do me much good for this question.
i have a Savage Arms Mark 2 (chambered in .22 LR) while i was bored the other day i pulled it from the basement and brushed away the dust, mounted a scope ( Simmons 3x9 32 MM)
i took it out and zero'ed it ( 1" groups at 50 yards with remington bulk ammo) i was pretty impressed for a $180 rifle, ancient scope, and bulk ammo. so the next day i went to school i used the Plasma-Cam to cut a 6" circle from 1/8" steel, found a 3/8" rod in the scrap and stick welded it togeather (E7018). brought it home, drilled a hole in a tree stump 130 yards from the back deck and set the make-shift steel target in the stump.
i returned to the deck and began shooting, i knew that the rounds would drop around 5.75" at that distance and with the little wind it would drift 2.5"-3" to the right. however the Simmons scope does not have mil-dots and does not easily adjust for distance and wind. so Kentucky Windage was pretty much my best bet, which worked pretty well.
i am looking into a new scope for this rifle (and CCI Stingers) to really see what i can get out of it. being that it is a .22 caliber rifle i dont really see a need in spending over $150 for a scope.
i have looked into a BSA 4x16 40MM and a Simmons 4x21 40MM, i was hoping maybe someone on the forum could help ( I want the scope to have accurate Mil-Dots)
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
