I socket asked What is the best method for sighting in a scope on a rifle?

I have an old Marlin .22 rifle. It is a semi-automatic. I recently bought a scope for the rifle. I have always used open sights when I went shooting with my dad as a kid and have never used a scope. I want to start going to the range and shoot again but I would like to know how to sight in my scope before going. I have seen new laser products on the market that fit into the barrel and shines on the target so you can adjusts your scope accordingly. However, when I have talked to a few sportsmen, they indicated not to use these products. What is your recommendation?

And got the following answer:

How To Sight In Your Rifle Scope

Rifles are like people and have individual characteristics. Two identical rifles made by the same manufacturer, although alike may shoot differently. Every rifle will fire different ammunition brands and different ammunition grains with varying degrees of accuracy. The following procedure takes these factors into account as you should if you wish to be accurate in your shooting.

Tools You Will Need
• The rifle and scope you will be shooting

• No less than two different types of ammo from different manufacturers and with different loads. (We suggest you try at least three.)

• Several paper or cardboard targets.

• A bore sighter. (Available at gun shops and sporting goods stores, an inexpensive item.)

• A pair of good binoculars or viewing scope.
See Link For Choices Binoculars or Spotting Scopes

• Tools for adjusting your scope. (See the instructions that came with your scope.)

• A felt marker to identify groupings on the target.

• Appropriate safety equipment such as ear plugs or other hearing protection, and safety glasses or other eye protection

Having located an appropriate location to fire your rifle, you need to set up a target at a distance of 100 yards* from your shooting location . You should use a comfortable gun rest to eliminate as much human error as possible.

Making certain the rifle is empty with no cartridge in the chamber and the breech open , follow the instructions that came with your bore sighter and install the bore sighter in the muzzle of your rifle lining it up with the scope as close as possible.

Now, sighting through the scope as though you were going to shoot you should see two sets of cross hairs. One set is a plain cross hair (this is the one in the scope itself) and another set which is graduated or on a grid (this is the one in the bore sighter). These cross hairs should line up with each other vertically, horizontally and in complete alignment. If the vertical and horizontal cross hairs are not parallel with each other, adjust the bore sighter whatever direction it needs to turn in order to achieve this.

Next you need to get the cross hairs to cross or meet at precisely the same location. If they do not do that you will need to adjust your scope so they do. There are two adjustments on any scope. One for elevation (usually on top) and another for windage (usually on the side). Follow the directions that came with your scope for how to access these adjustments and what tool to use (i.e.. screwdriver, etc.) to make this adjustment. Proceed to adjust your scope right, left, up, or down until the cross hairs match. Remove the bore sighter from the muzzle! Make sure you have removed the bore sighter from the end of the muzzle!! Load one cartridge into the chamber and close the breech. Take aim at the target bulls eye and squeeze off one round. Open the breech and be certain the rifle is not loaded then go check your target close up. If the one round you fired hit anywhere on the target you have done well. Don’t be concerned that it was not on the bulls eye. That will come later. You have now completed the first step.
*If you are not hitting the paper target at all in step one, move the target closer in 25 yard increments until you do consistently hit somewhere on the target. You cannot make any scope adjustments if you do not know which direction to make it. Once you initially hit the target sheet you can make adjustments and then gradually move the target back out to the 100 yard mark.

The next step is to test ammunition . As was mentioned in the introduction, no two ammunitions will behave in the same manner when fired from the same rifle. This may be one of the most important steps in sighting in any firearm and is the one that is most frequently omitted. Do not bypass this step.

Select one type of ammo and fire three separate shots at the target with that ammo. Using your binoculars or spotting scope, locate the pattern for those three shots. (If you do not have field glasses or prefer to walk out to the target to check close up, always leave your rifle empty with the breech open and carry it with you to insure against accidental discharge.) Hopefully, there will be a tight pattern of bullet holes in one particular area of the target. Use the marker to label this grouping. Again, it is not terribly important if the pattern is in the bulls eye or not, but keep in mind the bulls eye is what you are aiming for.

Repeat this procedure with the other brands of ammo you are testing. Always fire three shots or more to get an accurate grouping. Two shots are simply not enough to determine anything. When you have finished with all the ammo you care to test, you will have marked and identified each grouping and its relationship to the center of the bulls eye.

Now you can select the type of ammunition which produced the tightest grouping closest to the center bulls eye. This is the ammunition you should use with this rifle. This does not indicate that the other brands and grains of ammunition are not any good, they simply are not the ammunition best suited for this particular rifle. You have now completed step two.

In step three you will use the ammunition you have selected as the best for that rifle and make adjustments in the elevation and windage of your scope based upon the pattern you are shooting. The elevation needs to be adjusted to provide the most accurate shot possible even though the distance from you to your target in the field can range any where from 50 to 500 yards, depending on your scope and rifle. To accomplish this set your elevation so the pattern hits the target about three inches above the bulls eye. This will not alter closer shots significantly and will compensate for the longer shots. The windage adjustment should remain dead on center. Continue to fire no less than three shots to locate your pattern then make the necessary adjustments to your scope to achieve the three inch high dead on center pattern. When you are confident you have accomplished this you have completed step three.

The final step in the procedure is to be sure the rifle is not loaded, no cartridge in the chamber, and the breech open. Reinsert the bore sighter lining it up by eye just like in the first step. Now, get in the shooting position and record on a piece of paper exactly where the scope’s cross hairs are in relation to the bore sight cross hairs. This is a little insurance in case you should bump or drop your rifle while in the field. This kind of jarring can throw off the accuracy of the scope. You can use the bore sighter to check the accuracy of the scope. By referring to this record you made when sighting in your rifle, you will be able to readjust the scope and be reasonably comfortable that it is somewhat accurate. This completes step four and the complete procedure.

kwelch3930 asked How to add a scope to a rifle?

I’ve never dealt with a scope before and was interested in using one.

I have a Marlin 60w .22 rifle.
I want to keep to use a lesser expensive scope for just general use and plinking.

Are there mounts I need to get that attach to my rifle?
I saw that there are “rings” too. What are those?
How do I know what scopes are compatible with my rifle?

Honestly, I know pretty much nothing about this subject!

And got the following answer:

The groove scope mount has been covered so my two cents on scope. I’d suggest a Weaver R4(RK4?) or a Nikon rimfire 4×32. If $100-130 is simply out of order then a Simmons 22 mag will be one of the better cheap scopes.

Bill Spry asked How much brighter is a 22 rifle scope with a 32mm lens than one with a 20mm lens?

I’m talking cheap 22 scopes under $50. At only 100 to 150 yards would it matter?

And got the following answer:

In building a scope – about 90% of the cost is in the coatings of the lens. These metalic coatings act like a handful of straws and allows the light to come back to your eye and not get scattered in the lens.

Two identical modles – yes – you can expect the larger lens to be 2x brighter at dawn and dusk.

If you compair a $18 32mm and a 49.99$ 20mm you would expect better coatings on the more expensive scope and that would be the brighter scope to own.

That, the best 22 scope on the market today, for the money, is the BSA ‘Sweet 22’ because it has a BDC that once calibrated allows you to instantly change the crosshair zero from 25 feet to 400 feet with just a simple turn of the top turret. It costs around $80 or so and you can see it at www.midwayusa.com and Cabellas.com. I have several spare $400+ Leupolds in my safe – but – this is the scope I have on my suppressed 10/22 I use for grouse and bunnies in Alaska. Not because the lens are great – because it is fun to use and lets me quickly dial in the bullet drop for a clean kill.

You will not be disapointed with this scope.

~*~ Aidan’s Mommy ~*~ asked What is the best target rifle for a beginner?

I just started going to the range – and I’m addicted! A lady at the range had a ruger 22 rifle with a scope on it, and I would like to buy something similar. But, when I checked prices for that particular rifle they started at about $600. Are there any other rifles that are similar, or is there a different one that you would recommend for a beginner? Thanks! :o)

And got the following answer:

I am a certified rifle and pistol instructor. If you want to become a good marksman – start with a 22lr in a bolt action model. Preferably one without a magazine or tube feed. Learning to make each shot count is key to learning how to shoot well.

Yes, you could buy a Ruger 10/22 – I own about 4 of them – use them for hunting. When I go to the range and set up 10 targets mine twice as far away and are down in 10 rounds…….. when I see others with their 10/22 they still have 4 or 5 up and their 10rd mag is empty. You need to learn to walk before you run……… and learning on a bolt action single shot will teach you best, and, convserve ammo.

Victor asked What is a good beginner rifle for an inexperienced shooter?

I am planning on going to a Gun Show pretty soon and was wondering what are some good rifles to keep an eye out for! Something cheap,reliable, and easy to maintain because this would be my first gun! Ive shot a .22 rifle multiple times and really like them alot! Are their any specific brands or types to keep an eye out for? Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated! This rifle will be strictly for the range so no Hunting or anything else!
Sorry about that, my price range is around $350.
Also a good looking rifle wouldnt hurt!

And got the following answer:

CF has my vote on the Marlin 60. The Wal-Mart deal is a bench mark to beat. I would usually go for a bolt-action, and I like the Marlin.
Quite possibly the greatest deuce-deuce Marlin 60

Cannot beat the 22LR for ammo costs and fun shooting targets.

jdfuente2006 asked When sighting a .22 cal rifle, how far is the ideal distance of the target assuming i use a scope?

I am trying to bore sight my .22 rifle scope. I was just wondering the effective range of the bullet and how far should i set my target.

And got the following answer:

Depends on the range that you intend to shoot. Usually 50-75 yards.

Are you “bore sighting” or “sighting-in”? Bore sighting is literally looking down the bore of your gun at a target and adjusting the scope to that it is centered on the target. Bore sighting can also be done with a mechanical device or laser. Due to the ballistics of the bullet, it will still be rough, but enough to get you “on paper”. You must still “sight-in” with some test shots to get your scope zeroed perfectly.

Wade Howard asked What is a good and affordable .22 rifle for target shooting?

I am looking at getting a .22 rifle for target shooting. Nothing fancy, just something to have some fun with. I have a price in my head, but am open to hear the opinions of others.
I occasionally go varmint hunting, so a gun with a scope is a plus.

And got the following answer:

A Savage 64F generally costs about $150, often with a scope included. Savage is pretty famous for excellent accuracy these days, so that would be my choice.

I’d stay away from the Mossberg 702 Plinkster if I were you. The Marlin 60 or 795 are both good guns, in the $150-$200 range, and the Ruger 10/22 will cost between $200-$250 most of the time.

If you’re willing to consider a bolt action rifle, the Savage Mk II is about $200-$250 as well, and quite accurate.

The most you should ever pay for a plinking and small game .22LR is about $250, $300 on the outside. Any more than that, and I’m of the opinion that you’re getting ripped off.

The ONLY potential .22LR rifle that might cost more and be worth it would be a lever-action, and you can probably find a nice used one for $250 or less.

EDIT: Gun shop, good. Pawn shop, bad. Most pawn shops have ridiculously high prices on their guns, knowing that suckers walk into pawn shops. Gun shops are usually far more reasonable, and what’s more, they actually know about guns. Not all pawn shops do.
