That's what in Kaintucky Windage - hold it about 4.5 inches high above the target?

You just died.:p

A typical AR hold is "about" 4-5 or even 9 inches high at 300 yards. Not a .22LR, though.

Is that for standard velocity .22LR (1060 fps), high velocity.22LR (1260 fps) or,
hyper velocity .22LR (1760 fps) like Viper ammo?

Standard velocity since it is the standard 20.3 moa or 63.8" for high velocity 40gr .971 seconds of flight at 300 yards

So,
while using standard velocity .22LR ammo, to shoot the 300 yard target, one must aim between 5.66 feet to 6.33 feet above the target, windage not figured.

Yes 75.1", 6.258' flight time of 1.060 with a 40gr bullet that left the barrel at 1070fps with a 200 yard zero

With a 25 yard zero.
So we can laugh even more.

WoW!

That's my height of holding above aimpoint!

Thanks for clearing this up!

eldar
No, that's how high your aim point must be, above point of impact. Wanna hit that 7' guy in the toe? Aim at his face.

I recall reading an article mentioning that a .22 rifle sighted in at fifty feet shooting standard velocity ammunition would hit the bullseye on a target set at 75 yards.

Purty good!

My inexpensive utility rifles would be the $60-$80 Marlin model 60. The $100 Argentine Mauser in 7.62x39. And the $150 SKS. And the $179 Saiga AK, still not converted to be a “real” civilian AK. Or maybe the $89 Mosin 91/30, the $150 Mosin M44, or the $125 sporterized Enfield No1 MkIII*.

I don’t know, it’s so hard to decide.
