Question

Ruger 10/22

Just ordered the Ruger 10/22 Take Down Rifle. Most reviews say it's hard to fine a scope to keep mounted when packing it in the bag it comes with. At 8.1 inches this looks like it should do the trick. Does anybody know what size rings I would need to mount on the Ruger 10/22?

The Nikon P-223 Riflescope, IK-713807, will work on any rifle. However the reticle is set up for a .223, being that the .204 is a much flatter shooting cartridge the Ballistic Drop Reticle will not be calibrated for the intended ranges at the given marks.

It would work as in a scope work, the reticules specific to .223 ballistics will be different due to bullet weight and powder charge. You may get lucky and the co efficients of the two are similar enough.

Varies... there is a program Nikon has that let's you calculate the various range reticles and at which power. They have a smartphone app but it costs a few $. I have setup and adjusted my scope for use to 700m and had to zero my loads on the first diamond at 25m to get it tobe set at 697m on the bottom point of the lowest diamond. As you zoom in the ranges between points will narrow greatly. At 3x my lowest it holding near 1000m... so zero according to a particular load, log it on a pad or phone for magnification desired, and repeat forloads you plan to shoot. As far as accuracy of markings even a 5kt wind with lighter or non BTHP bullets will throw you short a good ways at 500m but for a very nonscientific test using graphing paper it was dead close at 200m I would only use it for larger still targets or emergency situations/quick fire only... I still adjust for precise untimed shots but if SHTF I know I can handle a square foot +/- target from PBR to ~700m quickly enough to get the job done.

Terry, There are a number of dovetail scope rings you can buy for this rifle or add a tactical base for picatinny style mount. You can find a number of dovetail rings under Mounts and bases on the cabela's web site.I would suggest medium rings so that if you add flip up scope covers you will have clearance. Make sure you check out Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program to optimize your BDC scope's accuracy too.

Norseman78, You will be just fine putting the Nikon P-223 3-9 BDC 600 on your bolt action rifle. I have done this using the M-Series Scopes and have had great success shooting out to 600 yards. Make sure you check out Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program to further dial in your Rifle,Scope and ammo combination. I think you will be very pleased with your results.

To answer your question,Yes, a red dot scope can be mounted on top of your P-223 3-9. This will take a special mount not that I would suggest talking to a gunsmith to get the right 1 inch mount and rings that will allow you to mount the red dot on top of the P-223 3-9. Another thought might be a co-witness side mount red dot which would have you canting the rifle 45 deg. to make an accurate shot. Again, talking to a gunsmith who can help make sure you get exactly what you want the first time is what I would suggest.

The two-piece, reversible integrated base and ring are for use with the Nikon P-223 Riflescope, item # IK-IK-713807.

I like to zero my .223/5.56 rifles for 100 yards. That way if you are using 55 gr. bullets at 3240 fps you'll be just an inch low at 100 yards. You can check out Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program and optimize your zero with the ammo you are using. Spot On will also give you the greatest accuracy if you choose a BDC reticle.
