Much the same with click value--with many manufacturers having a +/- 2% tolerance, if a guy says all of his many (especially lower end) scopes are exactly right on, it means he isn't measuring accurately.
In better news, don't worry about the guys on the SERT team. They should never be shooting at ranges where any of this matters. This stuff becomes meaningful at long range when large elevation inputs are required.
I got it, and yeah, I know scopes have tolerances. Thanks Cpt Obvious. My scopes aren't low quality, and the show no significant canting. Not even the 1 VX-II I have which I have never shot over 500 yards. Its on a stock tikka I have that I rarely shoot anyway. I will recheck my Mk4s just for you though since you are so concerned with my scopes. Thanks for that.
And no, I still won't buy sightron.
Apparently you are the scope guy. I get that. But you have no clue about SERT capabilities and tactics. I actually do. I was never a shooter, I was a military officer, I don't get to do the shooting. I do have experience in urban and rural tactical situations and the training my men receive. I also know that SERT sharpshooters train in the same tactics, just with higher consequences than military. My cousin for example has been in drug interdictions requiring shots over 1000 meters. They use ERT Mk4s
