The options weight wise as I see them realistically are:
Bushnell 8-32x40: great scope but, very tricky beyond 50yds
Leupold Comp: not sure I can shoot on 40x (esp. Positionals)
March 10-60: £££££££ but, is the temp shift predictable/manageable?
The FT discipline is rather underdeveloped here in France so difficult to garner much feedback.
All constructive inputs welcome and thanks in advance.
So far the only real shift i have found is in very cold weather . getting down towards zero , where it will go about three yards long . i just knock it down to the next range below . EG if it reads 47 , i dial up 45 . no probs really . but saying that you need to remember it . it caught me out sunday at a winter league comp . got to a lane with a long diagonal shot of to the left . in a clearing with a good wind coming through it . ah ha i thought , the course setters revenge here . anyway ranged it as 54 yards , dialled it up gave it two inches of wind , shot as it was dropping and DINK . it hit dead center but half inch high . grrrrr . i had forgotten to take it of . would have got it on 50 yards . oh well . good scopes . light strong and ED glass . the ret is quite thin , but i have never lost it .
