  • Recommend scope size for a .22, target shooting mainly and some rabbits.

    After advice on what size scope is going to be best for majority of target shooting out to 100m and some rabbit shooting,
    What do you recommend to be be a good all round size to cover both?

    Will be on a bolt action .22.

    3-9x40 will meet your needs best i think

      3-9x40 is hard to beat.... 4-6x for hunting, 9x will give you a clear target at 50m.

      Anything bigger is really just adding unnecessary weight.

    3-9x40 is pretty much what you need as a few have previously mentioned.

    I have this setup on my 22WMR and one .22LR which I leave the 3-9x40 set to 5 x or 6x for hunting.

    I find 9x is too much for hunting with a .22lr or WMR as I shoot mainly offhand, but at 50m you can really see those holes in the paper when sighting in a rest.

    I have a 2-7x32 on another .22lr that's only used for hunting and it stays set on 5x.

    Shot most of the rabbits in my time with a 4x40 fixed.

      Go for the biggest mag you want, you will still be able to hunt fine if you have a 6x at your lowest setting
