    I just got home from the range where I setup my new Discovery VTZ 4-16×44 scope. This is what I learned.

    The reticle is thinner than any of my other scopes. That had me a little worried with my old eyes. I did the setup method that was posted last week that was created by the A-team field target group. After the setup, I absolutely love this scope. The glass is super clear and crisp. I was surprised at how clear and well defined the the mil dots were. I have another cheap 6-24-50 that has decent glass (for a cheap scope) and the biggest thing I noticed with the Discovery is that the parallax focus is perfect in the 18~25 yard range that I shoot. Not only matching the marks on the focus wheel, but the error with a slight head bob is Zero. All of my other $100 scopes have always had a tiny shift, even when in focus. It was nice being able to not only hit the bullseye, but be able to fine tune my shots inside the bullseye. All of my new guns will get Discovery scopes.

    I can't say how problems are dealt with at Airgun Optics Plus, because I had no problems other than ordering a model that was out of stock. I got an email from Charlie with good options almost immediately. So I'm going to call that great service. I have seen him post on the forums, so I assume he is better than most, given that he is one of us.

    Eddie can you post a link to the a-team setup please. I love my discovery too but the crosshairs are too thin for me and hard to see

    Crittahitta, I think what helped the most with the reticle size was getting the eye piece backed out a little more than half the adjustment range. The A-team method should reflect that.

    Definitely order from Airgun Optics Plus. I ordered a Discovery scope on Amazon only because I had a couple of gift cards. Took about 3 weeks to arrive from China, and if I have any issues with it, I'm not sure what kind of service I'll get. I have ONLY heard good things about Charlie at Airgun Optics Plus.

    As mentioned on your other thread, the Discovery HS 4-14×44 FFP is a great hunting scope imo. The reticle is easy to see and it's very clear for a 44mm scope.

    I sell these as well at airgunarcheryfun.ca, and take care of warranty issues myself so no need to send to China, as I'm sure Charlie does as well. Not trying to take his business, sounds like he's a great guy and you won't go wrong buying from him. These are great scopes for the money for sure!

    Cheers

    I own two Discovery scopes now. I might sound like a broken record, but I cannot emphasize how good the build-quality and glass is for the price.

    As far as under 10 yards, I find that subjective. I have good vision, but to my eyes when the parallax is adjusted to 10 yards on the scope, it rings true to the eye. Neither scope will "over-travel" mechanically underand that, and there is some noticeable blur that happens below 10 yards.

    However, the blur is not bad at close distances, it is still a far better image than most scopes. I will admit that I have not tested shooting/POI at such close distances yet, but I would be shocked if any of that changed much. For the money you can't go wrong with Discovery. These scopes deliver some serious quality.
