I thought I knew this, but then someone said something so I am questioning my assumptions.

Having either fixed parallax-free setting adjusted to a shorter distance than "centerfire" scopes (ex: 50 yds / meters), or having parallax adjustment with a minimum focusing distance equal to or less than the min distance you plan to shoot.

Additionally most center fire rifle scopes will have preset parallax settings at 100-150 yards. I.E. Leupold 3-9X40 VX-2 is preset at 150 yards. That's not ideal for rimfire use.
