^^^ This right here.

I mounted an EGW 20 MOA scope base on my 10/22. The thick part is to the rear. Mounting it this way (the only was possible when you look at the thing) gives you 20 MOA of additional headroom to dial you scope in for long-range shots.

My 10/22 reaches out to 200 yards and, IIRC, I dial in about 43 MOA to do it. If the scope was mounted on a flat rail, there wouldn't be enough adjustment in the scope to dial me in at 200 yards.

Yes and several others have also, stayed far away from those. Had issues with holding zeros.

Good thread. I learned something.

Mama was wrong about me.

I am looking for a scope for my RPR rimfire to reach out to 200. What are you using? What is your zero range?

I've got a Vortex Viper 2.5-10X on m 10/22. I think it's zeroed at 50 yards.

The ER Shaw bull barrel and Volquartsen trigger, plus the right ammo, get me 5mm accuracy at 50 yards, and 12mm accuracy at 100. She's a real tack-driver

INCORRECT. Taller part to the rear, just like using iron sights at distance, must raise front sight/barrel to upward angle to line up with higher position of rear sight.

Taller part in front you’ll be shooting below line of sight, barrel pointing downward.

^^^This was my point in my comment. I was not trying to be snarky.

I had no idea so many shooters were confused on this.

Occam's award winning picture displays it best

Seconded. I mean, there's opinions and there's physics...you can argue one, but not the other.
