Weather was calm. Unfortunately, he didn't score any hit on paper. Aside from the Remington bulk pack ammo factor, I think he just needs to adjust the scope to the correct elevation. But I couldn't give him advice since I have never verified the theoretical 62 clicks up, or is it 78 clicks?:) you need if your 1/4 MOA scope is zeroed at 100 yards. This got me interested to try this myself next time.

Question for you ballistics gurus. If I use my 100-yd zeroed Marlin 925R with a 22-inch barrel, scope with 1/4MOA knob, how many clicks up is needed on the scope for the following ammo types?

- PMC Moderator subsonic ammo - 38gr @ 1000 FPS
- Federal AutoMatch - 40gr @ 1200 FPS
- Aguila Super Max Hyper Velocity Solid Point - 30gr @ 1750 FPS

Answers are easily given, learning is the key! it does not require all that much to accomplish the task of shooting and hitting a target @ 200 yrds via 22 LR I do it with a 3x9 Elite on a 10-22 as a matter if fact I don't even do any clicking... no it's not precise but I can hit clay pigeons!!! all that figuring stuff gives me a headache!

What's missing from this table to make it usable?

All you need is Lapua match .22 ammo at .45 cents per round you should be able to hit anything! :D

First thing that needs to be noted is that I own Marlin 925R and it is by far my most accurate .22 rifle. All u need is some high powered ammo that does not drop that rapidly and the right calculation of the bullet drop :)

I assume this is for regular standard velocity/1200FPS ammo. So I need 66 clicks up at 200 yds w/a 100-yd zero?

LOL. At that price, I'd rather shoot my Garand.

I would recommend Aguila Interceptor @ 1450 fps. The Supermax is a 30 grain bullet that will be affected more by the wind than the Interceptor bullet which is 40 grain. Even though the Interceptor round is less velocity it will be more accurate at that longer range. I know a guy who shoots this round out to 400 meters from a CZ Ultralux and shoots MOA at that range with open sights. Of course he has been shooting .22s for 60 years so there is a lot of experience there.

If the drop is 4.8 MOA, you'd only need 19 clicks, right?

4 clicks = 1 MOA

16 clicks = 4 MOA
3 clicks = .75 MOA

19 clicks = 4.75 MOA (close enough!)

Am I missing something?

I was hitting steel at 300 yards with a 10/22 and Federal box ammo. I had to aim about 15' above the target.

I was hitting the same target with my M1 Garand so I thought I'd try it with my 10/22. My friend and I were the only ones there that day so I could hear it hit the steel. Had to laugh at the sound it made after hitting it with the 30-06.

- Federal AutoMatch - 40gr @ 1200 FPS = about 72 clicks
- Aguila Super Max Hyper Velocity Solid Point - 30gr @ 1750 FPS = about 44 clicks

I say about because I rounded a little and the ammo may give you that fps but you really need to chrone it to see what your gun is doing.

The real fun is reaching out to 300 yards. With my rifle its 52moa or 208 clicks from my 50 yard zero.. Thats why I use the SS scope. need that 120moa of adjustment

Here is a video of mines.
22lr shooting ling range isn't that bad. 300 yards with 22lr = ~1000 yards hi-power.

closer to 11-12ft. Hard to tell at that distance though.

22 is GOOD for up to 300 yards from a 10" SUPPRESSED AR.
LMAO:rolleyes:

Look up "Gunkid".

Updates:

Checked the wind forecast last night. 7MPH. Arrived at 200yd range today. Tried 20 rounds of PMC Moderator Subsonic first. It dialed in nicely after one mag. For the second 10rd mag, after the 1-inch three shot group, I started rapid-firing(working the bolt as fast as possible), thus pulled the last shot low.

From 100yd zero, it is 82 clicks up (1/4 MOA turret)
It is 35 clicks up for CCI Blazer.

I only shoot subsonic ammo so the trajectory of my shots resembles a rainbow!

Adding a 20MOA base has really helped with my longer shots - as well as using a scope with a fair amount of elevation adjustment. Without resorting to hold-over, I'm limited to about 425 yards with subsonic 40gr ammo on a 60* day, and that's dialing in +75MOA of elevation from a 50 yard -0-.

It's difficult to spend any time shooting at 50 yards once you get into stretching it out a bit. A .22LR at 50 yards is about as dull as a .308 at 200 yards: you can stack 'em on top of each other.

As a rule of thumb, I zero my .22's at 50 yards. Hits a little high at 100 yards and back at zero for 200 yards.

We're talkling about .22 LR here. A .22LR zeroed at 50 yards is going to be 6 or so MOA low at 100 yards. It takes 25 or so MOA to get to 200 yards with a 50 yard zero. It sounds like your talking about .223 perhaps?As a rule of thumb, I zero my .22's at 50 yards. Hits a little high at 100 yards and back at zero for 200 yards.
