Re: Riflescopes for 1000 yd competition
At just 200 yards with my NF on 22x, I have a seriously hard time seeing holes in those blue colored targets, sometimes it's downright impossible. This blue happen to be the same exact color as those that are used in 1k BR.
I can see hits on white paper way out there, not sure how far exactly but, it's probably 5 times as far. It's not a BR target but, I see hits on the white steel plates at an easy 1000 yards for the first few shots, then they start to get mixed up with each other... the impacts spots are quite a bit larger than actual holes would be though, that's with 22x, not 42x...
I've switched to white targets I make with just a broad enough black outlined diamond to make it out at the distance I'm practicing at. The diamond helps with POA consistancy and the narrow black outline of it doesn't conceal the bullet holes either. The heavy shaded/colored/lined targets are a thing of the past for me.
Just so happens, my "off eye" is the only one with 20/10 vision the scope eye is at least 20/20 and works. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
