    Hi Pete

    I was going to PM this question but perhaps you could share your infinate knowledge with other board members on the following scope ?

    I know you used a Bushnell 10x40 3200 and that you liked it but now that you have moved on ( do walther make top end scopes . LOL ) what were the short-comings of the 10x40 ? IIRC you PX'd yours at 25 yards and zero'd at 35 yards - what points were out of focus ?

    Like I say , I have always been a fan of the scopes and px'd mine to 25yards with a 25 yard zero - clear at 13 yards but also clear at 45 which offers little or no rangefinding help .

    many thanks

    Dave

    Hi Dave

    too be honest i never used the scope in a comp but Jane did for a few years, but it was well capable of doing the job, but personally i don't like scopes without an adjustable parallax as very hard to fine tune and like you with the 3200 couldn't get a good balance.

    But try altering the focus to.

    Pete

    Thanks Pete , much appreciated

    Perhaps now is the time to change set - up as I have just housed my MPR in a custom stock , I may aswell start as I mean to go on . I always find a problem getting a happy medium between focus between a sharp reticule and/or target .

    many thanks

    Dave
