Re: A dedicated higher scope for load development?

I've used higher power scopes for load development and then switched to a more "hunting friendly" magnification for actual use. It's worked great for me.

If you don't want to buy another scope just for load developing, you can always turn the power down when hunting, but this has other drawbacks if you want to use a mil or moa reticle while hunting, especially if said scope is 2nd FP.

Most 2nd FP scopes that I've handled are designed so the reticle works best on maximum power........If that's 12-16X that's ok, I can use 14 for just about anything, even close range usually. If that's 25X, different story.
Aim small = Miss small
