Re: Which scope?

Mach V, I don't understand what you mean in your reply. If the rifle is sighted in on 8X and you go to 12X does the point of impact change for the main crosshairs or the ballistic lines? I believe what you say I just don't understand the concept. Thank you for your reply.......Tony

Re: Which scope?

Its not you!After I reread it I didnt understand it either [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
It can be both depending on the scope.
Shoot a group at full power some time and then turn the power down to 1/2 of its value and shoot another group.The point of impact changes in some scopes and it dont take much of a change in power to change point of impact sometimes.
What I realy ment by it is this.Most of the scopes set thier rangeing reticles at full power but lets say you find out the reticle matches you load better turned down a couple of xs.All is good and fine till you turn the scope up to view something or down to cut the mirage a little better and forget to turn it back to its calibrated setting.Not a problem if your shooting a town full of prairie dogs but if you miss the only groundhog you've sean all day it becomes a problem.
Give me too many choices,buttons or setting and I'll screw it up as often as it helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: Which scope?

I understand what you mean. I think I'll stick with a fine plex and go from there. I'll try the target knobs. I might have a place to shoot out to 350 yards and I can try to figure the number of clicks to each yardage at the range. Thank you again for the reply. Tony
