    Re: Parallax vs Focus

    This is simple...

    Paralex is the adj on the front of the scope, turning the lens turrent untill it focuses perfectly - but never..pay attention to the
    distance marks there.. They will always be wrong..

    Focus - is simply that the scope maker moved the paralex adj to the side of the scope on a turrent knob ... Same thing same principal, turn till focused perfectly....

    Bottom line ... You cant shoot what you cant seen when paralex causes the target to be out of focus ...

    Both fix that...
