Default Advice of Scope settings for HFT

Hi all,
Fairly new to HFT (only shot 3 courses but have caught the bug) and have soon discovered it is not quite as straight forward as you would think. I was using a Hawke 6-24 SR12 zeroed at 30yrds @ 10mag & 25yrd paralax but was really struggling with the shorter ranges due to focus. Treated myself to an MTC Viper today after having a shot and was impressed by the optics, can anyone out there suggest a good mag and paralax combo with this scope. Any tips or advice would also be gratefully accepted, using a .177 AA S400. Cheers guys.

I've got 2 10x44 vipers, both set on 25m/yds for paralax.
Long ones are slightly blurred, anything less that 13 is also blurred, especially 8yds....
