I am very interested to find out a bit more about FT, and have been reading up on the local sites as well as a few international ones.
The thing of particular interest to me in the optics involved.
I have seen that most of the guys seem to use scopes with a magnification between 8X - 50X.
Why is there a need for such a large amount of magnification, besides for ranging and the ability to have the target fill ones field of view?
I am currently using an AGS 4-16X 56mm Scope (beautiful scope) would this be sufficient for FT?
If not, what is the ideal and minimul sort of magnification for FT?
Also what are some of the better brand scope manufacturers in the larger magnification arena. I would be looking for quality optics, but also not looking to break the bank. Say, no more than R6000 as a maximum I would be willing to spend.
Any advise and comments would be appreciated.
