What kind of competitions are in the 22 world? What kind of gun scope combo is needed?

I need to buy a 22 but might buy a nicer one if there is a reason.

Not interested in a big benchrest gun

Thinking of making my own match, but would like to see what comes up, as well. I plan to put a pic rail on my bolt action .22 lr and move over one of my center-fire Mil/ Mil scopes, when needed.

I would love to see a long range shooting competition for .22 lr. Long range for that round, anyway.

There is a range in Davis Oklahoma that has a small bore match once a month. It is 50 and 100 yard match. Some shoot palma style and some shoot with bipod. They have some that shoot peep sites and you would be surprised at how good some of these guys are with peep sites. I shot it one time and still have my match 22 but I didn't like shooting palma style because when you get in the sling like your supposed to your hand that is in the sling will be purple and numb in a short time. I still have a bunch of the 50 and 100 yard targets if Jason wants to have a match. There is some place that they go to that shoots small bore out to 200 yards.

.22 RF poker chip matches look like fun.

I'd be interested in that as well. I bought a tacsol x-ring last week and can't wait to get it dialed in with the right ammo up

I had an Anschutz 164 Sporter 22 that was lights out. Just one big hole at 50 yards with Wolf Match ammo. Sub-MOA at 100. I had a Weaver Grand Slam 4-12 on it. It was a $500 scope that I got on clearance at Natchez for $199. You can spend a lot on a 22, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to beat a $450 Anschutz for price and top-level performance.

I have an Anschutz 54 in a hunting style stock, can shoot 0.11 groups at 50 yards with it. I'm a believer in them.

It seems as though the Arlington Sportsman's Club has 22 matches you can contact them for more info. But that's the closest I know of.

I really wish there was a know your limits .22 match nearby. This video made me really want to start putting together my .22 trainer.
