This first part isn't exactly a suggestion, but it leads to one.

A couple of years ago I found a BSA rimfire scope, 2.5x20, in the back of my closet. Parallax was set to 50 yards, but it was...

1. Be honest with yourself about the kind of shooting you will do. That's not easy if you are suggestible, like me. What kind a reticle would work for you? How much magnification is too much or...

It's a comment on the difference between the way people work and things work.

I've referred to the BBTI table before too, but the accurate reloading thread has some methodological advantages and test ammunition we might be more likely to use. I'd call much of the ammunition...

I think you could test that with just a 10/22 long barreled rifle and a charger. The barrels don't need to be similar to illustrate an influence on the spread of MV.
