Scope mag and zero

    Recommended Posts

    Hi guys, i used to do alot of air rifle hunting and would like to think I was very successful with it. For a long time now i have only had shotguns so may be out of touch with it...

    Anyway I have recently seen a forsale on here for a scope woth a 22lr rectical and it says something like to zero at 50yards use x12 or for metric use 10.5mag...

    So does the POI move with magnification??

    Thanks

    I guess  the seller is referring to the hold over dots on the scope and if shooting imperial yards and zeroed at 50 yds the dots on 12 x mag work out at every 10 yd increments .

    As a meter is longer than a yard the spacings on the ret  would have to be greater so 10.5 x mag works out better .

    And no the zero is the zero .changing the mag shouldnt change that .

    Only the hold over dots.

    I'm glad you confirmed that  I was thinking I was risking looking very stupid asking this question!

    Nothing is a stupid question. Btw i saw that scope myself yesterday and am now going to consider getting one for my brno. Ive always guessed holdover as i never really shoot beyond 100yards but this might help to see where im missing further on 🙈

    Some reticules are specifically marked up for calibres.

    I must have missed something because there are many types of ammo in most calibres, many types of barrels and barrels lengths, many different scope heights, many different moderators, etc etc etc and I just can't get my head around how a scope markings by calibre can work for all those variations!
