I got a new SS 10-22 Target a few months back. I got it to shoot close range steel matches. I set it up with a red dot. I recently changed to a scope, to see how it shoots. i put it thru it's paces Friday. it will run 0.5" at 50 yds. with Fed HV match and Fed auto match. Fed Ultra match ran 5 -5 shot eggs. of 0.400", Norma Tac-22 ran the same. Wolf Match Target ran 0.270 agg with small group of 0.219". this is outstanding for a factory gun, my built 10-22 only runs this type of aggs. I also shot both guns at long range, gumballs at 100yds: see Small Targets - RimfireCentral.com Forums , clays at 220 yds and 330 yds. Both hitting about the same.

You realize that at 330 yards bullet drop is 16 feet. With over 1 second of flight time to hit that sure is a long time for the wind to play with the bullet as well. If you zeroed the scope at 100 yards with a Nikon 3X9X40 BDC that is a very common scope you need 84 clicks up from zeroed to get on target that it does not have. The drop zeroed at 100 is 12 1/2 feet from zero. Do you have a 20 foot pole behind the target for an aim point?

Yes, I know it is a big drop. I have my guns set up for long range. I have a 25 moa scope base and Burris sig. rings with 10 moa insert. I can get all of the scopes 50 moa adjustment. I zero at 50 yds. and can go up to 330 yds. 4 moa to 100yds, 12 moa to 150 yds, 19 moa to 200 yds., 23 moa to 220 yds. 45 moa to 330 yds. that is close to 14'. I just click it up and hold dead center. I have a Sightron S3 with 70 moa total adjustments on my built 10-22, it will go past 400 yds.

At 400 yards the drop is over 25 feet and if a 3 mph cross wind the lateral shify over 22 inches. Try not to hit too many birds enroute to target.
