    Hi all I have a hawke sidewinder and was just wondering if anyone makes a bigger side wheel so I can have a bigger distance on 45 to 55 yards because they are really close

    Won't happen, couple of people make 100mm but the gaps will still be very tight. Wrong scope for FT.

    Mine is a 100 mm as standard was wondering maybe a 150 one would solve it

    Not really, the gaps may get a little bigger on lower ranges but the mag isn't high enough to recognise the increments.

    He does a 180mm shark fin but it won't help with a Sidewinder.

    I thought Barry made a wheel specifically for the Sidewinder. I've got the old Sidewinder and it ranges pretty well. Not a on par with some 50 mag scopes but still usable.

    Draw it out

    If you use a compass and draw a circle 100 mm across and transfer your marks to it , then draw a line from the centre through your marks .
    Then do another circle from the same centre 150mm across you will see what effect it will have on your gaps!
