If I zero at say 25m @ 12 x zoom does my POI shift if I change zoom to say 4 -5 @ the same distance - for hunting etc? I realize that the holdover probably changes as the mildots are a fixed distance apart etc
Thanks Allan - I've got a new Hawke 3-12x50 IR.. the zoom ring is also stiff... so what you seem to be saying is that it is not the accepted norm that the POI should shift with different levels of zoom - so the cross hairs on the x at 12 times SHOULD be the same as on @ 4 times? Any 44 times zoom FT guys care to comment? :bowdown
I have a slight astigmatism in my right eye so while i can shoot a grouping of say 10mm @ 25m I can't tell if a shift is me or the scope from a rest :;pat
only at the distance you have zeroed your gun at will it stay the same when you change your mag, your mildots will change when you change your mag eg.... on 30 mag you use 4 dots at 50 yards then when you change your mag to 25 you will use approx 3 dots at 50 yards.
hope that makes sense :blueyes
