Re: Is 16X REALLY the max usable magnification?

Wind mirage prevents you from using more... the guru's say, and I guess I believe them.
But jeepers man, things is itty bitty out past 1000 yards.
I am thinking 8x25 loopie with mildot.
Please talk me out of it in a way I can believe, cuz I think maybe the 16x max is probably true, but I can't convince my brain to truly believe it!
Thanks for any replies.

I use a 20-50x leup at 1000yds--havent come down from 50x in about 10 matches from 500M-1000yds
I also know about 2 handfuls of other guys that shoot 1kBR who dont come off 50X--and they are in the top 10 in the aggs at williamsport.
though 16 will easily get you to 1K (though that would be tough on P-Dogs) it is nowhere near max usable magnification.
