    the only way to get better is to have more days like this...

    I personally shoot the .22s about twice a year heavily, and once a month casually.

    Casually is maybe a couple hundred rounds.
    Heavily is a case or two at a time.

    The wife and I burned 1000 rounds of fed auto match shooting marlin 60s aganst each other just a few weeks ago. It was fun.

    Get you someone to compete against. it helps with the skill development

    now that is a lot of shooting-now if i shoot #4 on scope at 50 yds and move scope to #8 at 100yds i still have to shoot above target bullseye to allow for the distance right

    Nice shooting Beth. Is your range close by? I have to drive 30 miles to shoot.:( You should post your thread in the .22 rimfire forum.

    Edit: Duh! I thought I was still in the off topic forum!

    No prob.

    If your scope is sighted dead center at 50 yds, aim 5 inches high at 100 yds to shoot dead center...

    With a 3-9 power scope set on 9 power and a standard DUPLEX reticle you will be aiming with the base of the fine line below the crosshair...

    Beth this may be clear as mud. What I am trying to show is what JLA was telling you. With your scope zeroed at 50 yards you are placing the cross hairs on the center of your target. When you move to 100 yards you don't use the cross of the reticle but the tip of the lower vertical hair where it fattens out. At 100 yards put the tip of that fat portion of the lower vertical hair at the same place you put the cross hairs when shooting at 50 yards. That should give you those five inches of elevation you are needing. Clear as mud right?

    Very clear george. Thanks!

    Beth,
    Your magnification has to be all the way up (im assuming you have a 3-9X scope) if you have it set at a lesser magnification the distance you will be holding high while using this aiming point will be greater.

    Heres one more way.... I have ballistcs charts made up for the federal auto match you are using.

    Make sure your scope is dialed in dead center at 50 yds and simply dial your elevation turret (top one) UP exactly 5.7 MOA for 100 yds, if you have a 1/4 MOA scope that is 4 clicks per MOA or EXACTLY 23 clicks up from its 50 yd setting. That way you can use the center of the reticle at 100 the same as you do at 50... capeesh?
