8.5-25 too much for 1000yd target shooting?
Between the 6.5-20 and the 8.5-25 LR, would the 8.5 yield too much mirage on the higher magnifications for use on 1000yd paper? Would I be better served to save some money and go with a 20x maximum? I want to use it to hunt also, but the hunting this rifle does is NO LESS than 100yds, and most of the time, much more. My closest crop damage shot is usually 300yds+/-, so a minimum of 8.5 is no issue.
You try to get closer to the target,..and I keep trying to get further away.
