    Yes.

    How much holdover, or holdunder, gain be found by looking at ballistic charts online. And, of course, trial and error.

    You are very close. From a steady rest.[ sand bags work well]. set the rifle with the scope cross hairs centered on the target. set up the sand bags in a way that the rifle will support itself. fire one shot. Now reset the rifle with the cross hairs back on the original point of aim. [ now we get to the tricky part]. Without letting the rifle move, using the scope adjustments move the cross hairs to the bullet hole. This should have you on target at that distance. I would try this at no more than 25 yds.

    Your choice of scope is a good entry level scope. I have 2 I use on hunting and plinking rimfires. Both have held up well in average conditions for more than a couple of years now. DR

    Yes, your gun will be dead on for that range, give or take a few yards. Do you know about bullet trajectory?

    I have one, it's a decent scope for the money. As others have said, there are better scopes out there, but for your intended purpose, I think it will be fine.

    Unless you're going to be changing scopes out on your rifle a lot or getting a lot of rifles to put scopes on, personally I would just have my LGS bore sight it for me and spend the money on something else. JMO.

    I have the exact same scope on my 10/22 and it has been good. Now I dont shoot more than 100yds with it but after all its a .22.

    who knew a 10/22 could feel heavy?

    the scope really does at to the weight. I have to buy a sling.

    but yes, the scope seems to be very good. the crosshairs are a nice size, the eyepiece is a good size, so far I can't find anything seriously wrong with it. :)
