Re: parallax adjustment

bkite ... The simple way to adjust a scope is to adjust the occular lense to focus the reticle to your eyes and the parallax knob to focus the target. The crosshair adjustment should only need adjustment when you mount the scope on the rifle. The parallax may need adjustment multiple times due to target locations/distance changing. It is far more technical than this, but simple works best for me! A quality scope should not change POI with power or parallax adjustments. Good luck ... Mike

Re: parallax adjustment

To use the parallax adjustment effectively, move your head right and left, up and down,while adjusting the parallax knob, there will be a point that the crosshairs stop moving on the target. This may or may not be at the sharpest target picture setting focuswise, but it is where you need to be.
And how does parallax setting change POI? If done incorrectly, you will miss alot.
