I use 10 mag, parallax at about 22 yds zero at 30 yds. Blurry from 8-14 clear to 45.
I use a 4-12 x 40 scope set @ 6 mag and 20 parallax zeroed at 25 yards, cant hit a thing
Nikon Prostaff 5 - 2.5-10x40 BDC.
Set at 10x mag, with parallex adjusted to get the best balance between 10 and 45yds. This is where the paralex number is un-important, as scopes differ on the depth of field, it dosnt matter in the slightest what the parallex is set to, its important to be able to see 10 and 45yds, and to make a compromise on which is more blurred focus wise.
I would suggest having a slightly better image on the 10yds, as once its been shot a few times, those little close reducers are VERY difficult to see grey on grey... But with this, you need perfect head position on the longer shots. The Nikon has a perfect edge to the lens, and a very clear black ring around it which are very easy to line up to ensure your looking thru the middle of the scope.
I zero at 35yds, then the mid distance are only bottom of kill, but longer don't require too much hold over, plus 10yds is perfectly on zero.
Connect with 9 mag and parallax at about 28yrds and like most others I use the lack of focus at 40yrds plus as range guide, also clear to 14yrds then go with blur again for range down to 8yrds.
Connect 24 on 8x mag parallaxed and zero'd at 25yds
I use a delta optical titanium 4.5-14x44 ao FFP scope on my main HFT rigs, but both use different parallax markings....
1 on 10x mag & parallaxed at 30yards, zero 35yds
Other 1 on 10x mag & parallaxed at 15yards, zero 35yds
Both a tad blurry from 8-14 clear to 45.
