Hawke SportOptics is expanding the Sport HD IR family with a scope specifically designed toimprove downrange accuracy with your rimfire rifle.

Deliveringout-of-the-box 200-yard accuracy, the Hawke Sport HD IR Rimfire scope marriesthe most popular rifle in the world with innovative yet simple reticle design. When sighted in at 50 yards the Sport HD IRRimfire provides 25-yard aim points from 50 to 200 yards, giving the user downrangeaccuracy never expected from a .22 rifle. As a bonus, there is no need to memorize aim points, as the yardages areetched directly onto the glass of the reticle. Designed to be accurate at 9X magnification for ammunition shooting ator near 1300 fps, the 3-9x40 chassis design is easy to use and reliable. By decreasing the magnification it is alsopossible to calibrate the scope to subsonic ammunition.

KevinMichalowski, Executive Editor of Concealed Carry Magazine was one of thefirst to try the latest Hawke scope. “The Sport HD IR Rimfire is amazing. It is simple, accurate, andunbelievably fun. With its clear and easy-to-use bullet drop compensatorright in the reticle we had no trouble hitting squirrel-sized targets at 200yards. Just sight-in the scope at 50 yards and use the BDC all the way out to200. When was the last time you hit anything on your first shot at200 yards with a .22 rifle? Hawke makes it happen.”
