Re: Magnification for Shooting
My scope spends 99% of the time on 24x. Aim small miss small. You can shoot a 1000 yards at a 2' white board with a 3x9 but you can shoot a 4" dot on that wight board with a 6-24. Seeing you target better, aiming at a more specific point of you target allows better hits. It also allows the shooter to detect smaller movement in his platform which makes it easier to correct. The same is true at a 100 yards. I have a 4x dragunove scope that can target said wight board at 1200 meters but for any serious attempt to be accurate at that range, I want 20+ magnification.
