reticle magnification

OK rookie question here. Just wondering how magnifacation effects the reticle say on a nightforce 5.5-22 npr-1 . If I have it on 10 power and I am aiming with the sixth hash down will I have the same poi as exact same aim point on the sixth hash on 22 power? thanks

The Nightforce is a secound focal plane scope, this means that the reticle is affected by the power settings. The hash marks will be 1 MOA apart on 22 power which is where the reticle is caliberated.A FFP plane scope will allow the calibration of the reticle to remain the same on any power..
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
