I've owned a Henry 22 since 2001. I just purchased a Steel Big Boy .357. I topped it with an old Burris Full Field 2 3/4 compact scope I had on a slug gun. ( 61 yr. old eyes). Dailed it in at 50 yard zero with Federal 158 g. JSP. 3 shot 1 1/2 inch group off a rest. Really impressed! Love shooting this BB!
