I'm wanting to have a dabble(not seriously) at FT but don't fancy having to keep changing scopes for HFT and so would be willing to compromise between the two if the set up would work.
Over to you guys what are your thoughts ?

I've tried it and failed miserably!

You could set the parallax but you either just see a complete blob from 7-15yrds or 35-45yrds depending on how you set it. If you want to shoot both FT and HFT you need a dedicated scope for each discipline.
