Desert Fox, now I know why I don't spend time on that board. That was hilarious especially coming from a bunch of pro Luppy owners (scopes that can really have some fun tracking).
As far I am concerned as a hunter, I only one to take ONE shot at my target. I rarely desire to dial up then force my self to shoot my game 5 times in order to kill it. I guess they are going for really, really dead
If that first shot doesn't go where I dialed, who cares about the next 4 or forty?
As I mentioned in the article on the home page, a scope has to work right THE FIRST TIME EVERYTIME. If you dial up 3 MOA and you get 3 MOA, then your scope is dead on.
The fact that it might actually measure 3.23568298589" WHO GIVES A RIP. That is why we calibrate our drop charts to our rifles to our optics.
I loved it when they said "if the scope doesn't move up exactly 1/4" per click, you will miss based off your ballistics program" OMG. You mean to say that a ballistics program is always right? That's hillarious.
Obviously, these guys are pretty anal about only doing things one way. They don't seem to see that as long as the goal is met with confidence, just doesn't matter. As much testing as they may do, their procedure doesn't leave much imagination to account for different results that may still be positive.
I was orig taken that the scope was way off in its adjustments until I reread the distance was longer then 100yds and that the clicks was more then 1/4" but a true 1/4 MIN.
Looks like you have a good scope. If you have interest, you can read how I test my scope. A bit more involved then your box test and will show if there is any drift or stickiness in the mechanicals.
That is one very nice shooting rig as your final two shots show. I can't believe that someone actually said that your rezero of two shots (shot 6)overlapping may not be an accurate representation of zeroing performance.
This from guys that think 1/2 MOA is a good thing and doing the luppy two step normal... Kills me.
To make a test target, just get a piece of white/tan paper and put a normal target in the middle. Aim dead center and dial around the target. Measure the target afterwards. Just put plumb lines on the target so you can see any vertical or horizontal dispersion.
