That sounds like the problem then. If known ranges are shifting, then, that's got to be a major factor.

I got mine to range nicely, but I never had a chance to use it all year around as I kept going back to my fisher price one.

I looked through rich's and got 45 at 50... but then those white boards threw mine forward by 2.5 yds and I only got them on the money when I went off the stumps they were nailed to. I also had fun and games with the strings, as many had lost their frays, and I really need to have something in the order of a single strand or a spider's web to be sure, else I can be 2.5yds out, at least.

I wasn't used to rich's scope to say whether it was out or just the way i was using it.
