    A round over effect with sand paper would be an easy way to go rather than a sharp 45. If you don't like it you can still use a router.

    For offhand shooting, I like the BSA Sweet 22 line for my 22 silhouette shooting. These are good scopes for the money and you can quickly adjust for distance.
