Primarily for my 10/22T stainless LR build, but also move to other rifles eventually. The 4x20 was what I looked for but found this 5x25 instead.

Amazon link

Looks like the EGR 20 MOA pic rail will be under it. What rings should I use? The rings move with the scope so think tough precision movable rings.

I thought there was a bunch of long range experts around here.

I had that same scope, I think it would work great on the 22 and Iíve shot out to 800 with it no problem.

No experience with the scope but donít go cheap on the rings if youíre going to be moving it around from rifle to rifle. I like TPS rings. Theyíre ugly and heavy like me and not the least bit tactical. They are great rings though.

I prefer Seekins rings. They do not have any large bolt heads protruding from the rings.

Good scope, good turrets, good reticle, reliable tracking. Not the absolute best glass in the price range, but you have to sacrifice something at that price point.

Ok, with a whole lot of patience and guidance from Jason, I have ended up with this in my cart. Comments? Do I need anything else?

I am guessing on ring height, any body with experience mounting a 50mm objective on a 10/22 with an EGR 20 MOA please speak up.

Ultra high rings? You're gonna strain your neck. Also, Amazon? Should be cheaper elsewhere, call Doug or Skylar.

I have not mounted one on a 10/22, but mounted this exact same scope on this exact same rail with the Seekins 1.00 height rings on my 6.5CM with heavy barrel. Fits perfectly with a couple of mm under the objective bell.

Seekins has 4 different sizes 0.92, 1.00, 1.26, and 1.45 in that order I'd say low, medium, high, and ultra high. I think the rings you have in your cart will be way too high.

Looks like Badger Ordnance makes a 1.00 size and its just labeled as "Standard"

Yes, look else where for a better price. Plus that item title looks like a chinese bot wrote it. Should be Burris XTR II 34MM 5-25x50, not sure what a XTR Iix 40mm is.

Oh and just to save you guys some time, don't think Skylar works for SWFA anymore.

Looks good!

Now you'll just need a 20 MOA oic rail for your centerfire rifles and the scope can move around as needed.

SWFA has a 4-20 for $929 on the sample list, I bet they'd take a lot less.

If you don't mind used, I think Wade (BigPig) was thinking about selling the 5-25x I sold him. I was first owner and it was in perfect condition when I sold it to him. Think he has only had it out of the house 3-4 times since.

SWFA has some HD scopes on sale on sample. Much better than that Burris

Pass on those Barret Rings. I would go Seekins. Lows or mediums. I believe the SWFA scope is 30 mm

Call Skylar

Saw your edit..

I agree the SWFA 5-20HD Demos for 899 would be what I got, They come with sun shade, flip caps, and bubble level. Hell of a deal. I personally like the reticle in the Burris better than the SWFA, but the other pros out weigh the reticle.

Again, don't think Skylar works there anymore.

Those are Badger rings. Not the previously mentioned Barrett.

They are good enough for Jason so they are good enjoy for me.
