Is redical power specific ??

I have a Ziess conquest 6.5 x 20 z-1000 redical and have on the bench zeroed in at 500 yards. Does the point of impact change on this scope with the power setting??

I think that scope is a second focal plane scope , so yes it is going to change with different power settings . Jim

Does'nt matter what the RETICLE is , the point of impact or the zero/zero position should stay the same thru-out the Power Range .

NO. It doesn't. It has nothing to do with ffp or sfp.

He asked if the poi changes. It doesn't. Zero is zero. Now if he had asked about the reticle graduations changing, that is what you are talking about. Maybe you are reading into what he's asking. I am just answering what he asked. "Does poi change?" Not meaning
to dump on anyone.
