Default Magnification

I have been out on the Sywell outdoor FT course this afternoon and ranged (at 50 mag) from 10yds to 55yds at 5yd intervals. Once focused at any of those ranges at 50 mag, turning the mag down sequentially as far as 10 mag doesn't affect the focus. Which is excellent. I have been generally advised to shoot at 20/25/30 mag in the interests of gaining a more comprehensive view of the details surrounding the target; so I'm going to start at 30 mag. If I find that inadvisable because of my inability I can drop the mag a little.

It's trial & error, in my case.
But I don't just want to follow a set of instructions - whose instructions do I follow ???
I want to gain knowledge and understanding, so that ultimately, I can make my own decisions from the knowledge I have received. Otherwise I'll be blaming someone else when I miss targets.
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
