Reply To: What scope are you using for competition BR?
With a top quality lenses for a scope you don’t need more than 10 X up to 100 yards.
Army snipers are trained to use fixed 10 X at MOA targets.
They don’t train to shoot body size targets.
They train to shoot in very specific POI on the body size target. (an eye for example) at 200 yards and a head at 1000 yards.
If your scope don’t have top quality lenses of course you need more magnification.
Just compare a Smith & Bender scope side by side with a Zeiss both set with 10 X at a 100 target you will understand.
