    Anyone shoot 22LR at long range? 300 yards to 500 yards. Looking for recommendations for a long range scope, base and ring combination.

    Thanks!

    I've seen a lot of guys using crossbow scope mounts that have a dial elevator in the rear so you can dramatically increase the scope base MOA. It seems to work quite well for them.

    Also it will be highly unlikely that you would find a scope that has enough range of adjustment in either elevation or windage to use it at 300 to 500 yards even if you did use a crossbow scope base.

    Just looked at a ballistic calculator with rough settings. You are going to need 90+ moa of adjustment to get to 500 yards.

    We will figure it out. One guy here is already doing 500 yards. Have read about guys doing 1000 yards with special bases. Just one more thing to play with just to see what can be done on the cheap. Rimfire is cheap compared to centerfire long range.
