Response to Appreciate that but I'm really interested in why there there is a bias...

I have used some other peoples high-dollar scopes turned down to 12X in HFT. The image was a little sharper and brighter than the low dollar 4-12X scopes (Bushnell Banner, Leapers, etc).

The slightly sharper and brighter image made it significantly easier to determine where the target was actually in focus. ie: There was a 5-10 yard range that all appeared equally in focus when using the cheaper scopes, but only a 2-5 yard range that appeared equally in focus when using the high-dollar scopes. Ranging was both more precise AND a whole lot faster / easier (less back and forth to find the middle of the sharp range).

On the other hand, this was only a big benefit for the 40-55 yard shots --- And there aren't that many of them happy.gif
