“wyshadow”I have shot a lot of cottontail rabbits at 15 yards or less. You can also get very close to pigeons closer then 15 yards inside barns when they are roosting. Most of my ground squirrels I got were less then 20 yards and I have shot several at 8 to 10 yards. At these close distances, I have my zoom at the lowest power setting


I second that-many of my rabbits are at 8-10 yards in heavy cover, it’s nice to clearly see the vital area. In the case of my .25 which is used for longer range stuff, it isn’t necessary.
