most important part:


find 22 shells

most 22 are accurate with a particular brand, even if you could find enough 22 shells brands to screen them, getting a large enough supply of that accurate in rifle brand, would be a project by itself.

This looks like a nice new option for a rimfire:


Spendy, but nice feature set.  There aren't too many SF tweener scopes available.

Ted I know you like the Minox so I'm giving you a heads up.I put the new made in Germany 3-15x56 with a side focus down to 50mm on one of my 22's the glass is up at the Alpha range.The new ZEi scopes are heads above all there other scopes.FYI they are coming out with a new tactical line[EITHER PE or PV]designation but will be very expensive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info, Ernie! In general, I'm not too enthusiastic about 56mm objective scopes, but I'm definitely anxious to see what kind of improvements Minox makes in their scope lines.

Have a couple of 10/22s and put a Sightron SII 1.5-6x42 1 inch tube and a Nikon Buckmasters 4x40 on them.  They work great for what they are used for.  I will be picking up a LH CZ 452 Lux in the next week or so and have a Kahles Helia C 2-7x36 MultiZero with the #4 reticle waiting for it.  The plan is to set it up for varying distances from 25 to 100 yards.  If it shoots like everyone says, I'll probably look to unload a 10/22 or the scopes for them.

what about ffp riflescope. do we need it?
whether it would be easier to determine where the bullet hit the target?
shoot a small target / bird at a distance of 100 yards

Welcome to OT.

FFP riflescope on a rimfire.  Interesting concept. I have FFP scopes on my long range rifles when its ranging capabilities are necessary. I have an SWFA 3-15x on my CZ455 but it is more about the side focus than the FFP design.  I'm typically shooting known ranges with this rifle.

Don't see where FFP will hep or hinder your ability to see where the strike of the round would be but would recommend a mil-dot/MRAD reticle to simplify your adjustments.

Not sure what you mean by high end, but you may consider the SWFA 3-15x or 5-20x scopes.  They are big and may be a little odd for a rimfire rifle, but excellent optics and side focus will help with the typical rimfire ranges.  I'm setting up my CZ455 to be a precision trainer, so the scope works fine with my setup.

I like good quality glass on a rimfire even it's not entirely necessary.

My most liked .22LR is my 1959 Brno 581 auto. It is near mint and was in storage for many decades. I stripped it down the other day, which can be done without a screw driver and gave it a good clean. The only plastic part is the butt plate. Anyway, I recently mounted an old Zeiss Diatal-C 4x32 on the rifle which is great for bunnies in the dusk. Previously had a Leupold 4x Compact mounted which is a good scope but not as good in the twilight as the Zeiss.

Nailed seventeen fat spring rabbits a couple of weeks back.
