I've noticed that nearly everyone shooting NLR22 is adding a 25 MOA scope base (or some variation) Is this even necessary with scopes having 60 MOA adjustment? If zeroed at 50 yards.

Absolutely necessary? Probably not, but maybe desirable because many of the clubs/matches have informal shoots that reach beyond the 100 yards that is the max range for the formal match.

Also, putting external elevation adjustment on the scope allows you to get closer to the middle of the lens when sighted in at the midpoint of the ranges you typically shoot. It also keeps you away from the extreme limits of the adjustment knobs when dialing for drop at longer range. I use the Burris rings to get 15 MOA of external adjustment on my silhouette rifles, for example, for those reasons.

Quit talking clicks. Please dial to the full MOA or Mil and adjust from there.
Use your reticle.
Since itís rim fire and not center fire
The 25yd or 50yd increments make quick math harder.
The very very best thing to do is.
Get a old door or a 10-12 hell a 16 foot tall board about 12Ē wide. Stand it up vertical and put a orange dot at the very top.
Sight your gun in where ever you want. You will run out of room at some point anyway.
You can buy moa built in rails or rings if you want to keep the gun as you LR gun.
Any way at different distances with your sight in distance shoot at that orange dot.
Go look at how far down that bullet dropped.
Measure the distance.
Well now we know how far to dial up.
Go back further. Shoot at that dot. Look how far your group dropped. Measure it. Now you know how much to dial up.
I like to spray paint the group and go back and look at it in the scope. Keep center x on the top orange dot and count down your moa or mil lines down to your group.
Thatís what you dial on your scope.
I like to make a DOPE card.
Data on personal equipment. So you can go to the range with that gun and that load and make hits on stuff no matter where itís at.
Cheers
