John Kloehr Posted March 27 Share Posted March 27 (edited) I won a Ruger 10/22 Tactical rifle at the Friends of the NRA dinner this weekend. It has no optics, and no dovetails for iron sights, so needing optics. Primary purpose for this gun is varmint control on my property, Groundhogs and skunks. 50 yards to the barn, About 100 yards to the property line. Secondary use would be steel challenge -- if, and only if -- the rifle can serve both purposes. I do have a couple red dots I am looking at (one has a 3x magnifier) and a couple of scopes. But I have no practical knowledge of either kind of optics, just learned about MOA. Really, I am an optics idiot. Figure some of you have a better handle on varmint guns than I do, also welcome input on such items as the ammo for a varmint application (stingers?). I run CCI FMJ mini-mags for steel challenge in my other 10/22 iron sight rifle. I'll happily post what products I am looking at, but first would like to hear opinions on my ideas.
