    i did a tracking test on 2 of those scopes. mine would move the POI about 23" when i turned the turrets 20 moa. both were about 10% off. traded it in for an HS and like it much better.

    Didn't notice mine movin with the gun strapped down(used a door knob as a "Target") knew the old scope was still dead on so before I took it off I put a cross of tape where the cross hairs were...mounted the new scope and just took some minor adjusting to get it " zeroed", reset the turrets to zero..cranked the magnification up n down, zero deviation from the " zero"...my old tasco would move 1.5" up at max magnification, none with this one....

    i was reffering to the amount the poi moves when you change the turrets. when you move 20 moa it should change the poi about 21". mine moved the poi 23"
