hey on this past sat. my middle son and i went to the rifle range and i finaly shot both rimfires. i had bought a new scope back in feb for the .22 but needed new rings for it. then i aquired a .17 hmr but needed a scope for it too. ok i did slap a small cheapie on it when i first got it together to see if it would shoot but that don't count. well last thurs my new rings for both rifles got delivered by Ruger and i put the 6x 42AO sightron bechrest on the .22, i put the 4x12x40 AO elite on the .17hmr and i took them out for a spin. got it zeroed at 25 yds and it went very well but when we moved out to 50 yrds a storm came rolling in and we had to call it quits. first impression on the 6x is wow. the elite i have shot for a couple of years on top of my 7mm mag so i knew what i was getting there. i hope it will hold up to the pounding the .17hmr will give it.:rotfl: i'm headed down to S Bar F scout camp on thurs to join my son so it'll be another two weeks before i finish tweaking them. oh, i still need to mount the new scope on top of the 7mm. but that'll happen soon.
