Depends on what glass you are using,and holding steady for a few seconds after the shot,and "not" trying to see the impact but being aware of the pellet movement(the eye is very good at picking up movement like this).
I generally see the impact point, with pneumatic or springer.

Sloppy head positioning could lead to it though I suppose.

On the plus side there is also increased chance of seeing heat haze / foliage movement in between you and the target (instead of behind it)

I shoot on 30 mag and tend to see i would say 85 percent as i try to follow every shot, in dark light i.e target at 50-55 yards through a tunnel of bushes i would see around 40-50 percent

Light ? ... you're obviously in for a nasty surprise here boyo ... all i can say is fill up carrotts Simon
You need two things in life - WD40 & duct tape. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If it should and it don't, use the WD40.
