I think it’s because the army shoots at completely different sized targets. They shoot at human sized targets, we shoot at a 3cm circle. It also makes a difference whether you’re hunting or target shooting with your airgun. During a hunt, hitting anywhere within the 3cm is ok. During benchrest, hitting in the exact middle of the circle is key. In order to see the exact middle of the circle you need magnification.
 


isn’t 1″ circle pasted on elephant bigger than 1″ circle pasted on squirrel? 1 moa rifle will send 3 bullets inside 1″ at 100 yards be it elephant or squirrel. Thats moa accuracy by definition. Accuracy is attribute of hardware, not operator.

10x scope is good to do single .224 hole at 100 yards There always 4-5 well equpeed guys at any local range doing it every evening. Given good hardware – no super skills required for that.

To my knowledge Leupod, Zeiss, Leica, Swardowski – none is making anything more than 30x.

What makes 40x scope used at 25yards with air gun such a nessesaty?
