    I've never heard of any centre fire rifle 'scopes that have had anything other than horizontal and vertical adjustments.
    I have used several makes of 'scope over the years and never had a need for any other adjustment either.
    I'm surprised this 'scope is still for sale at this price.

    Well you obviously dont do alot of shooting at varying distances then. the third wheel is a side focus paralax adjustment, without it the scope is useless at less then 75m since the picture is all blured, cheaper scopes have fixed paralax and the more expensive ones have adjustable for this very reason

    These scopes are very forgiving, I had one and shot deer from 20yds to 400yds. No need for a paralax.
    For target shooting there might be better scopes out there. For hunting this scope is great.

    Adjustable parallax is nothing but a pain in the ass IMO,i have it on my Luepy and leave it set around 100yds which is ok till the bloody thing somehow gets moved then your shooting all over the place,not got anything to do with focus and by the time you **** around playing with it for every shot at different ranges if your shoting deer it will probably have legged it,waste of space on a stalking rifle,probably useful on gophers JMHO.

    Laughing all the way with that comment, I'd say EMcC has shot 1000's of deer amongst other things, he also shoots Boar on the Continent, so I think your right, he aint shot much, especially those driven Boar, which he uses a scoped rifle for, that run past you at arms distance...........

    Now, where is my Parallax?

    oh my goodness.

    he does not shoot much, more than likley to have shot more than you will in a life time. like myself i have put more rounds down range in a day than most will ever shoot in the same life time,

    i hope you read the replies to that statement as it may make you think twice before replying the next time sir,

    bob.

    hat off to Eddie for not replying with a harsh sharp comment.
