who has one set up at the mo on a 17 hmr,
me and a shooting bud on here (steve) have set his up and im just waiting for mine to get here,
we set steves up at 35 yards (as i use this range when setting up a 17 with a normal scope)and we had a cracking small group that we where happy with, found this a bit tricky with the doubler on it and the ir was a bit overpowering at 35 yards
We then went out to 100 yards and found that it was shooting about 2" right and 2" high, we re-zerod it and have been happy to take on bunnies out to 120 yards and a wee bit more.
what i am asking is this,
is there a best/better range to zero at that will then let you shoot out to say 150 yards etc. I think trying to hit a 1" white square at 100 yards with the unit could be a bit tricky for me.I am looking at a range no more than 150 max.
kit i will have is this
photon 5 x 42 MK1
1.7 mag doubler and adaptor
mark610 T20 ir torch
last but not least Steve said the daytime image is very good with the lens cap on etc ,I have not looked through it in daylight as yet ? have you used it in the day time to shoot/zero etc, and if so how did you and it perform.
if you zero at night or day time did the POI change when used in the opposite hunting mode; ie zero in day light and you where off when shooting in nv mod at night and viseversa...if you know what i mean,
