You might get a better answer to your question if you made it easier to answer for a shooter or hunter rather than a politician.
Thanks to you and the others for your thoughtful replies. I'm definitely not lawyer / tree hugger material ;-)
I also was thinking from my glasses assisted POV.
What started my thought stream was I intend in the near future to purchase a .22-250 and a .308 for hunting purposes. Now, when I look at scope prices, prices generally go up with scope power. Now, I tend to try to purchase from companies with good reputation / products e.g. Leupold and that can often attract a price premium too. So, I was wondering of there was a way to judge the required scope power based on distance. I realise it will not be totally accurate but at least a starting point.
