There' nothing wrong with the scope .... it just isn't made for close up use. I believe Leupold set the M8's parallax to 150 yards. Your best bet for a 22 LR, used at various distances is a scope with a side dial or an adjustable objective lens (AO). You can adjust parallax correction and focus down to 10 yards and out to several hundred yards. I have a Nikon (no longer being made) 3~9X Rimfire scope with AO, that produces a sharp image from 10 yards to well beyond the max shooting distance for a 22 LR. Of course, you have to take a few seconds to adjust the AO ring or side dial for the proper distance.

I wrote and posted an article titled "Scope Dope" in the Forum E-Library. It goes into great detail about parallax, magnification, and most other scope attributes. Here's a link for those members with at least 25 posts: Scope Dope | Ruger Forum
