Response to Re: Bob, I agree with your first statement.
And my experience is there is essentially no serious gain in scores to be had from added ranging ability when going from 12X to 16X. The tiny incremental gain adds a few yards, but its in the area where nearly all rigs are in their "point blank" distance ... they can shoot with centered crosshair and hit with no effort with 12X, so increased ranging in THIS area isnt imprtant. WHERE better ranging is needede in hunter class is in the 35 yard and farther distances.
I find one needs at LEAST 20X to see better focus ranging to 40yds, and 24X out to 55yds.
That said, I would appreciate 16X over 12X because I can sight in on paper better without a spotting scope and I can see hits on faceplates slightly better to help judge wind.
But there is little chance the open class guys need worry about Hunter guys "moving up" if its just to 16X.
