Just curious...has anyone tried the Super Sniper scopes (probably in 16X or 20X) for smallbore position shooting?...

I have not, though I can't see any reason not to. Try it and let us know how it works for you.

He stated smallbore so probably 22.  How close will they focus?

Normally a higher powered scope is used for prone though, at least from what I have seen.

"tykemp" & "cheaptrick",
Both of you are correct...smallbore discipline is shot with .22LR or air rifle.  Indoor matches are shot at 50 ft. with .22LR, 10 meters with air rifle.  I talked to Chris and I know the scopes will focus down to 10 meters...my greater concern is the degree of accuracy to which they're "guaranteed".  Don't want to get in a situation like some competitive centerfire benchrest shooters have gotten into where they tried lower priced scopes, rifle wouldn't agg what they would with more expensive scopes, they returned them to be checked out, only to be told they're "within spec" or "they're not made for that kind of accuracy".  Just curious if anyone had tried them in the smallbore discipline...

i know that the supersniper is QUITE repeatable downrange - it's interesting to think that they would be awesome on a 22LR target rifle.
 
guys, if it'll focus at 10m, wouldn't it be just as good as it is at 100+ yrds?

I would prefer a very fine crosshair for competition.

Hey, guys.
 
I just posted regarding using the 10X SS on my Remington 511 (.22LR) for practice target use.
 
The SS scopes are VERY reliable. When offered with the Tasco name, these were issued to the US military for Remington 700 Sniper rifle kits.
 
The zero repeats. You can dial in tons of windage and/or elevation, shoot, bring them back to zero and they work. No flash, no fanfare. Excellent 'bang for the buck' optic.
 
My question was asking about mounting options on that receiver. Does anyone have any advice? (Please see myother post for pending SWFA order)

I know of 4 of us winter indoor 50 foot prone small bore shooters that use either 16X or 20X Super snipers for the any sight part of the match program on the A-36 target.  The reticle is a little thick but the SS's work just fine and they will focus down to 33 feet.  In the Summer we put them back on our highpower rifles or use them for 200 yd scoped .22 rimfire matches.
For the money they are a very good scope.

As much as I'm a fan of the scopes your're looking at, for your application I would want something with a finer reticle.  Or go the way I would go, aperture sights.  You would be so suprised how accurate on a bull target you can be with them, for example, http://www.opticstalk.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=12706 
 
Let us know how it turns out for you if you get one of the SS scopes, I'm interested in this.

The SS scope reticle is a bit coarse for the 50 foot A 36 target but really not too bad.  For 50 yards on out to 200 the reticle is just fine.  And the 20x SS is on my back up Gilkes Ross F tr Class rifle and it works fine there too out to 1000 yds.  My main scope is a Night Force NSX 5.5 x 22 x 56 on my Tubb 2000 set up for F tr it is a lot brighter than the SS as it should be for the premium price.  But it will not focus down less than 50 yards, really more like 100 yards is the minimum  Useless for indoor .22 winter practice.

Yep, Aperature sights are great, shot them for many years but as you get older the eyes don't work so good.  So the scope keeps us greybeards shooting.  Use to shoot Across the course matches with an M1 and M1A, shot Palma with irons too.

The scope should work fine for your application IMHO.
 
I have the 16X mounted on one of my pcp benchguns and it does just nearly as well
as my Leupold EFR with target dot. I shoot with regularity moa at 100 yards and have
one very proud 1/2 moa 5shot group at 100yards along with dozens of sub moa groups..
 
I feel the scope is equal in everyway but for the thicker crosshairs when aiming for such small precision. Nonetheless I just sold another elite 4200 to be replaced with a second SS
this one in 20X.

I have a super sniper 10x42m and pound for pound & dollar for dollar they ARE the best scope on the market. You cant go wrong with the purchase of one of theses scopes. They are very clear from 10-1000 metersand will work for your application, if the the scope design your looking for.

My CZ452LH .22Lr with a SS 10X scope put 10 shots into 4 1/2" @ 200 yards. Last week I had it sighted in at 365 yards. The wind died, I put 5 rounds of Federal Gold Medal downrange. I was really suprised to see a vertical string 4 7/8" long!
