You just need to spend the time finding which mag setting and PX setting suits you over the 8-45 yards that you need. Then learn your aim points.
I cant seem to get the thing low enough! The rifle it sits on only has a small dovtail section at the front so i am limited to how far forward i can get it.. At the minute i am using bkl single strap mounts to get the correct eye relief (the front ring touches the turret section) but the problem is they only come in 24mm high for the 30mm tube.
I have considered reach mounts but as the turret section of the scope is very bulky i would still have to use high ones to clear the clamping section of the mount..
