"rear focused". How in the world would this scope be used for hunter class field target shooting where "scope rangefinding" is a large part of the competition. LOL.....even for still hunting squirrels I would first set up with "bucket and sticks" and get a "scope rangefind" of all tree around at the "40 yard line" and wait till squirrels crossed the 40 yard barrier before aiming. I guess that a separate LRF could be used for the same purpose but then that's just another piece of equipment to mess with in the field. Even when stalking squirrels I would do a scope rangefind to determine the proper holdover if the squirrel "stayed put" long enough.

Anywhoo......the "rear focus ring" is a negative issue for my airgun shooting where the pellet can drop an inch between my 30 yard zero and 45 yards as this target shows.......
