scope ? for RPRf owners



Log in to see fewer ads
I am thinking of getting a RPR, and am looking at scopes. I would like to know how much total elevation adjustment I would need for ammo with a 1060 fps. m.v. sighted in at 50 yds, and then going to 300 for shooting steel. Never shot a .22 at that distance before, but I hear it can be done so I would like to give it a try. Thanks for any info!

Check out the Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24X50 FFP. It really is great value and a fine scope for such an application. I chose it and really like the reticle and the parallax that goes down to 10 yds. Great glass and great warranty. I picked up on for just over $300 (for a scope that should have a price point way more).

Another good choice is the Hawke Vantage SF. 6-24X44, mil dots and can be had for $230 or sometimes less online. Have been using it in NRL since I got it last May without issue.

I just bought one of these 3 weeks ago and WOW! Same recticle as my Vortex Viper in that same power at less than half the cost.

Glass is not as good, but it is a fine, fine scope at the under $375 price point.

I also used the Vortex Pro Series High Rings (PR-30H) that include 2 additional T-25 Torx screws and wrench and measure from the rail to the center of the scope 1.26 inches (32.0 mm). This keeps the scope low - about 3/8" above the forearm tube. https://vortexoptics.com/vortex-pro-...ng_height=1188

The rings were $54.99 at Cabelas store.

I agree with Straight Shooter. I purchased a Vortex Diamondback Tactical in 4-16 x 44. It has first focal plane and has 85 MOA for max elevation adjustment. For $300 range it cannot be beat...in my opinion at least!

With the 30 MOA rail your gonna need a lot of adjustment. Basically 30 inches high at 100 yards ,

sighted at 50 and shooting to 300, there will be about 154" of drop. That would be 154/3=51.333 MOA's or 154/10.8=14.25 MIL's of adjustment, I believe. Not shot mine yet at that distance. I have a Bushnell AR optic 4.5-18 on mine. Mine is set at 50 and at 100 I raise it 1.9 MIL's and it's dead on at 100.

Actively shooting a Ruger PRF out to 300-yards. I have my rifle sighted in at 100-yards and it takes between 37.5 MOA to 38.5 MOA depending on barometric pressure and temp. From my 100-yard zero i have 75 MOA of elevation available (Nightforce scope).

We have about six to eight shooters show up to shoot every Thursday evening to battle the ever-present Idaho winds. Biggest challenge is affordable ammo with an acceptable extreme spread...

Good luck & good shooting!
