I shoot at max power almost exclusively. I did shoot an Extreme Silhouette match last weekend that had a Squirrel class which required a factory rifle with the scope power no higher than 9X. I was still able to make fairly consistent hits on the turkeys at 177 and the rams at 200, but it was really difficult to see impacts on the steel plates for sighter rounds.What power are most of you shooting at?
Double damn! Do you co-witness a red dot as a target finder? I was looking at that for a DTA HTI and settled on a USO 5-25 instead... I've just never been one to like much magnification but I do like a large FOV.March 5 - 40 FFP. Not only to annoy people but to see the bullet holes at 300m.
No need - find the target at 15 - 20 power and zoom until comfortable!Double damn! Do you co-witness a red dot as a target finder? I was looking at that for a DTA HTI and settled on a USO 5-25 instead... I've just never been one to like much magnification but I do like a large FOV.
I also have the SWFA SS 3-15x42 and this weekend I could actually see the bullet coming down from it's arc shooting at a target 150 yards out. I thought I was seeing things but others said they can sometimes see their subsonic .22 rounds. Now I'm sure it wasn't 100% because of the scope, but I will say it has pretty good clarity and resolves .22 cal bullet holes at 200 yards without too much difficulty if the mirage isn't bad. I do think it's a little sharper at 15 power than my Gen 1 PST 4-16x50 is at 16 power, but the eye-box is very unforgiving at 15 power, more so than the PST at 16 power. But I shot this scope in a PRS style .22 match and I was running it anywhere from 6 to 12 power and it worked great. Paralax was nice also, easily focuses at the advertised 6m and beyond.My old Smack the Smiley rifle wears a 3-15x42 SS SWFA, parallax can be adjusted as close as 6 meters. Glass is good enough to watch the bullet arch in on white paper targets or when hunting in snow.
