Quick question. I use a 4 -12 x 50 scope on my 25.06 that is set at 8 times magnification permenantly and 1 inch high at 100yds. Pretty standard stuff.
On the reds yesterday and was settled in to take a long shot ( using a bi-pod for stadility ) and the guy I was with said why din't I turn up the mag to 12. Never tried that magnification before but his reasoning made sense...........and I missed. Nothing wrong with the zero, rifle, scope as I went onto take 5 hinds cleanly, including one at 300yds. All at 8x magnification.
So there's the question. Does the point of impact change if you increase the magnification ? Hope so as thats my only excuse for the first......effort !
