I agree 100%

One thing I would suggest to anyone struggling to see the pellet strike is to try moving your sidewheel a small amount before taking the shot. For example - if you range the target at 50 yards but alter the PA setting to 45 yards before taking the shot.

Depending on your mag - the target picture will still be fine (I could do this with a 45x Leup Comp).

I saw a lot more pellet in flight / strikes using this method.

The pellet enters the focus range earlier and stays in it through to the target - if you leave the focus set at the target distance then you only catch sight of the pellet in the last couple of yards.
