It is all flannel mate . smoke and mirrors .experts ,sexperts . all you need is a decent scope and experience and practice . you will not do any better with a three grand scope than you would with a three hundred pound scope . don't put the scope next to the barrel for FT . that is for HFT .get some risers and lift the scope ( and the cheek piece ) three and a half inches from the barrel . line of sight to line of flight . this will flatten the trajectory further out where you need it most . admittedly it makes it a bit harder close in . but easily sorted . then just practice . i have not missed a target for range in years . ???
