    Had a t1x and now a Sako rimfire

    Rabbits at 200 are no problem with a VX5 and subs

    What ammo are you using, match or hunting ammo?
    What sort of accuracy are you getting at 200m?

    I don't think any scope would help a ruger 10/22 shoot rabbits reliably @200 yards, they are just too inaccurate.

    I whacked a Vortex viper on my T1X, found some data on web for CCI Standards and went and had a play at my mates range. Was intending on doing a comp down south. Quite surprising how accurate they are further out. Plenty of wind that day as well.

    @7mm Rem Mag I agree. I call my 10/22 my 50 metre rifle, for close proximity shooting, and sure I hit them (sometimes) out to 120m.
    But my Weihrauch HW60J are true long range rabbit rifles: Winchester 42g sub 162m, Browning BPR HV 192m, 222 Remington 242 metres.
    Still looking for a super accurate Hornet projectile/powder load combination.....
