1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    If you have your air rifle set up using a mildot scope which has a true mildot at 10x mag and zero'd at 35 yards and you have worked out your aim points for holdover/holdunder will the point of impact of your aim points change should you lower or higher your scopes magnification

    Yes it will unless it's reticle is in the first focal plane like the lightstreams. I usually 1/2 the magnification and 1/2 the number of mildots holdover, if that makes sense?:eek:

    It'll change the aimpoints.

    Lowering your magnification will bring your aim points closer together

    Yes your holdover points will change if you alter the magnification on a 2nd focal plane scope.
    mk2 is right, using this method allows you to use a mildot scope at 2 or 3 different magnifications.
    I use x10 mag for my holdover when shooting from a rest/bipod. If I shoot off hand/unsupported I use x5 mag and each mildot counts as 2 mildots), I can also go to x2.5 mag for close range plinking (each mildot counts as 4 mildots).
    Mildot scopes are great for air rifles because of the amount of holdover they need from 6 to 14 yards and then 30 to 55 yards but it takes some thinking about to get the most out of them but allows multiple uses from one rifle/scope combo.

    I use 6 x mag for all quarry at all ranges.Test the gun on 6x at different ranges to see what 1 point measures at, for instance 20, 30 and 40 yards. Then all you have to do is estimate your distance well. Interestingly, are there any 50mm objective parallax mildot scopes out there with fixed mag, preferably 6x? I expect without the zoom facility the picture would be clearer and brighter..
