Response to I've pretty much gotten away from S/F scopes. For hunting, I simply
but AO is more precise. In fact I've learned that unless you have a GOOD scope, even changing magnification can change POI. I at this point wish I had all simple fixed 4x 40mm with 1/2 mils, AMX or Horus type reticles. Only time I ever use higher mag is to see strikes on paper at longer distances. It then gets turned right back down clockwise all the way to try to get it precisely where it was zeroed. In fact I'd rather set it and forget it and use binoculars to see the target; but they'll come eventually.
One thing I'm a bit torn on are my 2 Japanese Bushnells, a Trophy & a Banner both in excellent to mint condition. Too bad they don't even have simple Mil-dots. I've been considering selling as I have one on each Discovery and those rifles & myself would definitely benefit from Hawkes with AMX.
