Is it a 1” main tube or 30 mm? If one inch, that is the issue. I think most of the 30mm scopes should give you plenty. From a 50 yard zero, you should be between 7 and 8 moa to get to 100. After that it gets a little crazy. My 200 yard dope is 25 moa and 250 is 36.Thank you.
Maybe something is wrong with the scope I used (vortex viper hs 2.5-10 x 44) it bottomed out trying to get a 50 yd zero. I bought the scope new last year from LA police gear.
After 4 months of waiting I received a zero moa rail from ruger, but already lost interest in the rifle. Will most likely grab a 10/22 this year and dump this one.
I have about half a dozen vortex scopes and never had a problem zeroing any of them so I figured it must be the rail, guess I need to try a different scope to see if this one might be off.
The ruger rep made it sound like I am the only person that doesn't shoot a .22 at 300 yards and that it was my fault I bought the wrong rifle for my shooting preference.
Maybe he was right. It was an impulse purchase that I didn't even know existed until I walked into the LGS one day to pick up a transfer I bought online and he said check this out and handed it to me, I told him to box it up. I went home ordered a scope and bi-pod for it and a week later is when the disappointment began.
My scope has 75 moa of travel, i can get 40 moa up from my 50 yard zero then have to back my scope off and use 5-6 moa reticle holdover to get to 300. That means with a 30 moa base I should still be above the bottom limit and be able to dial all the way to 300.
