    I have an semi-auto .22 long rifle with a 3x9 bushnell scope mounted on the rifle. What is the proper distance for sighting in this rifle for squirrel hunting in patches of hardwoods?

    50 yards

      i would say that you should at lest sight it in for 50 yards or less, because there will probley be a couple of times where you will get out to a opening where you'll have to take i nice longer range shot.

        whether it be a .22,17HMR,or a .308 I sight them in the same. Start sighting in at 25 yds. Make sure you are on paper, and grouping. Then make any adjustments you need to. Once your satisfied with your shots at 25 yds, move it out to 50 yds. You can then fine tune your scope and rifle according to your ammo and shooting conditions.

          Will agree with all of the above if you have a gun capable of headshots at 50 yards.I have been shooting old long barrell Remingtons from 510 ,513T and 550-1 ,All old but tackdrivers.

            60 yards. If you sight in at 60 yards then you will also be zero at 20 yards. That means that from zero out to 70 yards your bullet will never be more than a half inch high or low. This way you can aim dead on out to about 70-75 yards never worrying about drop.

                50 yards dead on, but make sure to test out your bullet drop over 25 yards vs 50 vs 70. depending on ammo choice you can have mixed results. but dead on at 50 you should be with in a half inch or so of center between 25 and 70.

                  i always like to sight mine in to shoot an inch high at 20yds then you can hold right on and not have to worry about drop out to like 70yds.
