Maybe it's about time a few of us could come up with a set of criteria for HFT scopes then carry out some tests of our own & publish them on here, it might help new shooters avoid making expensive mistakes by believing the magazines.
That's why I liked Tim's articles on HFT scopes, he could back things up with measurements. I'd certainly be up for donating scopes to be tested independently, I don't have the knowledge, kit or way with words to do any myself - It'd help if a decent shot with no ties or loyalties did them as well.

As a starter, would these be any good?

Measured PX error at ranges 13, 30, 45y.

Clarity (or is it resolution?) - Std camera tests, there's loads available.

Does poi shift when px adjusted - How much?
