Re: Range vs Scope Magnification

I use mine, whatever the scope is, at max power for the shot. The moose I took with the 416 year before last at 30-40 feet away, the scope never left ten power, helped me pick the spot right behind the ear better. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I've only had to turn the 22x NF down because of mirage twice I think, and I really didn't have to but it was clearer.

My 3-9 sucks at over 500 yards, 10 power works to about 600 well, beyond that I really find myself wanting a higher power unit. All depends on what size critter you're shooting at too. Mine will all be 20 power minimum from now on....

Re: Range vs Scope Magnification

Mirage.....

You know, Burris put a daylight twilight apperature on thier Signature series scopes. If you turn it to daylight, you are looking through about 20% of the lens, only the center of course. Well, you are also looking at 20% of the AIR. AIR causes mirage... Apperature the scope, and you have less mirage.
