These are fearsome assets for an optical sight, but what I wanted to know was, how well could I shoot with one on a rifle? To find out, I needed a rifle with an actual history of scores shot, and as it turned out I had one--a Savage Model BTVLSS .22 rimfire. Offhand, with a scope set at 4X, shooting at an NRA 50-yard slowfire pistol target at 100 yards, I regularly get scores of around 84x100. So I pulled the conventional scope, installed the Aimpoint, and found, once I got used to the lack of magnification, I could actually shoot better with the Aimpoint, averaging 88. Kneeling, with a military sling, I could score in the mid-90s.
