Okay, now that I have my Tikka 30-06 sighted in I'm running with the bug and thinking maybe I should get a scope for the 22. Before I continue, I want to extend all the thanks I can to Urimaginaryfrnd for his help with my Tikka. I'll be posting my target just as soon as I can get a picture of it, but in the mean time let me say he was incredibly knowledgeable and I knew within five minutes of watching him work that what I was about to learn would have taken me weeks if I was going it on my own. More on that when I post the target.
So, I had a guy tell me that the 22 wouldn't kill the coyote unless the round was well placed, but it would definitely put a little hurt on it and might keep him digging in the next field instead. Anyone want to weigh in on that?
Next, I'm wondering what all is involved with mounting a scope on a 22 that doesn't currently have a place for rings (holes drilled or a rail), or if it's even possible. Finally, what economical scope(s) should I keep my radar up for when the funds become available?
Now that I have my time in with Urimaginaryfrnd, I have a pretty good idea of sighting it in and am pumped to be one cog smarter than I was a couple of days ago. I might never be a Jedi or god, but knowing one is a pretty awesome thing.
