If the scope is the older "made in Japan" they are a good scope. I used one for silhouette shooting for a number of years, I kept waiting for it to fail tracking or otherwise break but it never did. If there is a downside to them it is that the optics are not up to todays scopes but they are certainly good enough for varminting or punching paper.
I sold it to a friend in the early 90's and he is still using it, but it is now on his Sako Varminter.

223 Rem, my favorite cartridge - you can't argue with truckloads of dead PD's and gophers.

Gotta get my retro old school rifles up to snuff. This gun is a bit different than what I am used to. Long pencil thin little barrel. Gonna be fun to play with it.


ya did good pilgrim!

revel in that for a while and enjoy..

I have one that likes 40 gr Varmageddons and LT-30. It shoots other combinations ok but likes that one the best.

I'm surprised that Don/Savage99 hasn't jumped in to tell you how bad Remington 722s are.

Regarding a period scope, I've always thought that a Lyman All-American 8x40 AO mounted via Leupold Detacho-Mount rings/bases looked good and worked well on 722 varmint rifles.

My home grown 700 222 with 24" sporter barrel likes Benchmark behind 52gr SMK's and RL7 behind 40gr Vmax


The place smells like whores and gun oil.

My favorite load for 222 is 20 to 21 grains of 4198 with a 50 gr bullet. My gun really likes Nosler 50 gr BT.

My 722 shoots really well with 21 grains H322 and a 50 grain SP. It is the later version with the 24 inch barrel.
