    Hi , on the March official site, it states that the 8--80 rangefinds from 10 yards.I have looked through mine and it focuses down to 7,1/2 yards and ranges down at 7,3/4 yards.I was wondering if this is the norm or standard scope focus setting? So I would be interested what other fellow March scope users find there scope ranging from. Cheers Andy.

    Not sure how close my 10-60 will come down but it's less than 8 yards.

    Every single 80 I've tried is the same with regard to this.

    From what I’ve been told, in winter temps are generally lower.

    Not sure if that works south of equator.
