At longer distances targets will often "seem" to drift or wobble against their background making locking on them very difficult. This effect is known as parallax. If accurate shots at distance are important to you - small prey head shots, target shooting comps etc then being able to get rid of this problem is critical to your success.
Scopes such as this have Parallax adjustment which basically means you are able to adjust the scope using the AO lens to factor it out of the equation and give you rock solid target lock at any distance.
The effect varies in intensity and effect at different ranges so the scope features a range of adjustment settings. Adjust while looking through and you will find your ideal focus.
- Parallax yard settings: 15, 20, 50, 100, 200, infinity.
- Adjusted by the front lens objective i..e., it is an AO "Adjustable Objective" scope.
Range Estimating Mil-Dot Reticle explained
The Mil-Dot Reticle was developed by US Marine snipers in the 70s to improve range estimation. It is now the standard across for professional armies worldwide.
Wide field of view and edge to edge lens clarity makes this a true hunting scope, you'll be able to pick up quarry on the peripheral edge of the sight picture.
Half Mil Dot
Half Mil dot is basically a mil dot with smaller bars in-between at half mil in order to offer finer range estimation and holdover calculations. A mil dot range chart is included.
