    Normally it's the better optics that give you less to play with blur wise....my partners scope is...well not the clearest!!...if he can see the target...it's between 20 to 30....if he can only make out a distant blur it's 45!!

    Can anyone explain what makes some scopes apparently more susceptible to Parallax, I am pretty inexperienced presently and find my 3-9x40 very critical when it comes to head position.

    I have heard several people say that they seem to get parallax issues with some scopes while not others, I don't really understand why

    I think due to different lens coatings and internal arrangements some scopes can be more sensitive to it than others. It all depends on the user as well, I had a lightstream before which is a scope that many people say suffers from parallax issues, and yet I found it absolutely fine. Likewise I used to have one of the old mtc viper scopes ages ago and I found it really bad for parallax error. There could also be something to be said for the fact that experience has made me better at maintaining a consistent head position therefore reducing parallax problems.
