From our recent "sucker match" - we shoot dum dum lolipops at 25 and 50 yards, Here they are at 50 yards (a dum dum is 3/4") thru my Simmons WTC 6.5-20x50 scope set on 20x, with the AO set to 50 yards.

I need 5 hands to get the rifle lined up, hold the iPhone (just held lens to scope), aim properly, and fire, but I want to get a movie of a 'pop busting.

I hear that.

I was wondering what a hit on one of those lolly pops would look like.

Anyway... this was recently posted in the other thread... I may have to get one of these.

March BR 10-60x52 at 50 yards. This is at about 45x power.

Thanks for posting.

Any trickier taking a pic through it at a higher magnification like 45x or even 60x?... as compared to say 36x?


Here's a 1/4 dot reticle at approx. 50 yards on 16x from a Weaver V16.


...and another dot this one 3/4 at the same distance from a Weaver T16 which I foolishly sold... these are hard to find anymore.



Keep em' coming folks!

This is a pic at approximately 100 yards or a little more through an older Simmons 3x9x40 Prohunter scope set on 9x. It is a phillipine made model. It sits atop my 10-22.



This is the same view through my Vortex Diamondback 2x7x35 scope set on 7x. It sits atop my 9422 WMR.



Both pics are from inside my house. I opened up my window but this is still through the screen.

The smaller the exit pupil, the tougher the shot. It was actually easier to get a photo with the March at 45x52mm than the Leupold at 36x40mm (their EPs are very close at those settings), but when I cranked the March up to 60x indoors it was almost impossible. It also helps to have lots of sunlight right on that bright white target.

It usually takes me three or four tries to get those photos just right... my strategy is to try a couple different settings, without any zoom or flash, and then take several photos and hope one turns out.

Thanks.

Yeah the 2.5x and 4x scopes were a lot easier than the 16x and 24x scopes and I figured that 45x would be a little tougher, just didn't know by how much. I guess that my question is kind of silly in a sense as I imagine that it's one of those things you'd have to try yourself to get a feel of how much more difficult it really is.

I'm in the same boat on the tries and it usually takes me several to get a good pic.

Mueller 8.5-25x Tactical indoors at 50 yards, aimed at two 8.5x11 sheets of paper stapled together (with 50 .22 bullet holes in them).

At 8.5x



25x



Not the best clarity or focus, but I did shoot some extremely small groups with that scope today.

It's 10x, I believe.

Correct, at least with that particular Mueller scope.

I know that it is 10x for the Mueller Tactical, not sure for others.

It's going to vary per scope.

Most manufacturers choose to have the mil-dots to be spaced correctly at max power, but some like Mueller, Bushnell, and Clearidge choose a mid power.

Mil-dots correctly sized at higher powers can be rather larger and some folks don't like that, but that's not necessarily their reason for doing so.

Here's a pic that I modified from SWFA to roughly show what a mil-dot reticle would look like sized correctly at 10x/14x/25x (the original was from a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x).


Most 9x scopes with mil-dots are going to be correct at 9x or not correct at all, which can be sometimes be seen with cheap scopes where they might have used a reticle that was correct for 10x (which is the power that the original mil-dot was based on if I recall) or they were not concerned with it being correct, just how cheap they could make it. Not referring to the Mueller.
