Re: Best 300 yd target \"visual\"??
A few comments about getting older.
About six years I missed a small buck at 10 yards with my bow because with my progressive lens bifocals I was trying to see through my peep, pins and the deer. I could not at ten yards make out the difference between the deer and the tree and see the sight pins in the failing light because my glasses were slightly slipped over and I was looking thorough the reading part of the lens. The same thing will occur with a scope and I will be unable to get a consistent sight picture because of where my glasses happen to be riding at the moment. My advice is to hunt with single lens glasses. You can set you gun in a cradle and look through the scope and with one hand move your bifocals around and see if you have the problem I had.
Secondly, you may need to ignore the parallax focus mark setting on your scope and just shoot what “looks” right.
Third, if you have changed prescription lately then go back and reset or recheck the eyepiece focus on your scopes.
Fourthly, I find that the larger the aiming target the larger my groups. Use the least size you can see.
Finally, if you should ever run upon the guy who said these were the “golden years”, please don’t shoot him. Tie him up and call me and we will torture him for a long time.
