Mr Atlas, how about a picture of your rifle with your new scope.  I think we would all like to see it.  :)



Well, I would be happy to post a couple of ugly pictures from my cell phone, but as a mere Grasshopper I currently do not have the rights to do so.

So just doing a really really good job of imagining will have to do for now. :-)

OK I put one up there and may do a few more, but it sure does seem kinda silly overall...and it’s still gonna take a while to get to the magic 50 post level. So no breath holding should be done...

Sadly, a few things are kinda hectic here and thus it may be a few more days before I can actually shoot the rifle the scope is on.  For now, some dry fire snap shots on 2.5x will have to do. 

As noted, I can carry it like a lunch box using the scope as a handle, but it would be easier with another 1/8” of clearance.  Thus 0.875” to 1” would be easier (with a resulting 1.4” to 1.5” centerline height, which is about standard).

But it sure does feel nice carrying it around by the handle..... :-)

Also FWIW, while I imagine the parallax setting might be problematic, at a quick glance at a ballistics table the current BDC might be reasonable useful for .22lr shooting from about 40 yards out to 100 yards or so.  The “3” line is close to 60 yards, 4 close to 80, 5 close to 100. All this at 10X, hence at 5X the “5” line would be good for about 150 yards, etc.

Of course an eventual .22lr specific BDC or mil-quad would be nice, but I imagine that might be years out - or maybe never. Hence just academic drivel for now.

Atlas, I'll be happy to post a photo for you until you reach the magic 50 posts if you wish. PM me for details.

The reason behind the "50 post rule" is to help discourage spammers from bombarding the board with ads.

Oh I totally get the reason for the requirement, I just personally feel kinda silly posting twaddle just to increase a post count....

Thank you for the offer - PM outbound in a bit.

Thank you for posting the picture, RifleDude!

The Burris XTR rings are placed in such a way as to maximize the inter-ring distance, which is still minimal for “lunch box carry” use. 

It works for me and is IMHO a great proof of concept, though 

For a more generic implementation, high/extra high rings yielding a 1.5” sight line height are probably best. There is one taller version of these rings which would work, but the TPS TSR extra high probably are better, as they are more narrow and this give a greater inter-ring distance. 

Baby steps forward...
