Mueller Target Dot 8-32x44

I decided to go with a variable power scope for closer varmint hunting, currently I shoot with fixed power scopes in 12X, 16X, 24X, 36X. Any field experience with the Mueller Target Dot, side focus 8-32x44? clarity, tracking, P.O.I. shift with increased power.


Thanks

Re: Mueller Target Dot 8-32x44

I've done a fair amount of ground squirrel hunting with Meuller's 8-32 Target and found that the field of view even on 8x is pretty small making it difficult to locate your targets. This is not a dig on Meuller's scopes as I'm very impressed with them, great glass for the money, clarity is excellent, turrets track accurately, I've noticed no POI shift with power changes. I prefer their 4.5-14 Tactical for shooting varmints. Better field of view for the task, adequate power, mil dots make it easy to make hits at extended ranges with your rimfire as you can quickly measure/range the target and use the appropriate dot for hold over.

One feature of the Meuller scopes that I've found very interesting is the parallax adjusts to from 15' to infinity. This can literally allow you to shoot flies at close range with your rimfires. The 8-32 Target really shines for punching paper. All in all they are exceptional scopes for the money. A friend of mine has one on his .50BMG and it has stood up to that test.

Re: Mueller Target Dot 8-32x44

I love my Mueller but for close in yote hunting its the wrong scope. The field of view is way to small in close great for long shots. I'm taking mine off of my AR and going with something in the 2-8 class i was looking today but haven't found any thing yet.

the Mueller multishot should be a good fit for you, unless you are strictly a crosshair kinda guy
