36X is a lot of Power for Pdogs ....
and you will probably only be able to use it early in the morning and towards evening when the heat waves are minimal , and you will need a rock solid bench set-up . There may also be other rare weather conditions when you can use 36X . However , most guys go Pdogging in June-Aug , and it is plenty HOT ! The Weaver is a bargain at that price and tracks great . Some BenchResters use it in Competition . Even 24X is unusable most of the time if you're Varmint Hunting in the NorthEast . In S. Dakota , Montana , Wyoming etc . for most of the day , my experience has been that anything over 20X or thereabouts is iffy .
