    Most have 2.5inch - 3 inches on average that gives 10 to 12 1/8th clicks between 50-55yards 8.4g 775fps , You can go higher but close targets can't be dailed plus cant is a bigger issue IMO:)

    Yes seen the light :D

    its all a matter of preferance I have shot with just a set of high sportsmatch anda the steyr rail

    on the rail it flatens out the longer ranges but the 8 yarders are a pain I had to dial up 60 clicks which is 1 full turn so must reset the zero after shoting this target before the next one, some poeple do this as a matter of course I normally leave it till the next target and just dial the range
    Thats why the 8 yarders are hated as you mis dial the next target which are normal around 50 yds

    I'm about 3/4" higher again, 3 full turns for my 8yrd setting:eek::eek:
    There is a mathematical way to calculate everything out to obtain the MAGIC angle, flattest trajectory, and less clicks between 50 and 55yrds. Having done so I am getting a new rail machined up at the min!:cool:
    A mil-dot or multi line reticle helps with close ones if you are affraid to dial.

    ft again

    chris if the scope is heigher from 40 -55 yards, there are less clicks ...down side more clicks at closer ranges
    its more important to have top ranges close together,rather than the close ones. just remember you are dialing now. :)
