2. Allowing magnification up-to 24x, but no scopes capable of any more than 24x (i.e., can't turn a 10-50x down to a 24x marking) - to allow reasonable range-finding, with reasonably priced scopes, and while still using using "holdover" (no clicking).
for a while i thought you were a logical guy
turning down gives no advantage, period. it's not an opinion, it's a fact.
then you start on the 'reasonable,' and 'reasonably priced scopes' again. who defines who is reasonable? who is rich? who is poor? who is "gun poor" or "scope poor?" what if i find a schmidt&bender for 100 bucks? do i have to leave it home?
there are cheap high powered scopes. there are cheap large objective scopes. can't you just leave this part alone?
you forgot to rule out large objectives. they actually matter with respect to rangefinding. of course, they don't make objectives big enough to really matter very much, but it's a good prejudice anyway.
i would be fine with a 24x rule, and just using holdover, not clicking, but i really don't care if the other guy clicks, or swings a dead cat around his head in a graveyard.
this could not have been expressed with a mere digit. well, maybe....
