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.

    On air rifles, I currently have 7 :eek:

    I have a Nikon BDC, a Hawke SR6 and a couple of mil dot scopes on other air rifles, but I have 7 plain cross hair ret scopes, of which 5 of them are Bushnell Multi-X

    Folks have gone nuts over multiple aim points. How many do you need really ?

    Without going off on a rant a .177 sub 12 FPE air rifle is no more than half an inch up or down from about 11 - 42 yards and a .22 is the same between about 8 and 33 yards, so unless you are looking for true precision you need precisely no aim points between those ranges.

    IIRC my last .177 shot dead on at 55 yards on the first mil dot - that begs why I'd want the other five or six...

    The first mark below the centre cross on a 4b ret Meopta scope is dead on at 300 yards on my Browning .270 so, again, why do I need the other aim points ?

    Anyhoo, yes, I have a few and I like them lots :)

    If you really want precison you can vertically dial your shots in using a Multi-X ret:

    one of my .22 rifles takes 10 clicks to be bang on at 20 yards, 10 clicks the other way at 35 yards, 21 clicks (from zero) at 40 yards, and so on.

    I usually just leave it alone and confine my shots to the 8 - 33 yard ranges where I know I'm no more than 1/2 an inch up or down.

    Easy :)

    Does one vote with 7 Multi-X scopes = 7 responses ?

    ;)

    you are indeed right you don't need all those aim points for .177 and that's why I'm going to sell my mamba lite and buy a bushnell 3-9x40 multi x.what what magnifications are your multi x scopes

    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 1.75-5x32 on my old HW95

    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 1.75-5x32 on a HW99s

    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 1.75-5x32 on a Theoben Sirocco

    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 3-9x40 on a HW80

    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 3-9x50 on a HW95k

    All Multi-X

    Although not strictly speaking a Multi-X, I have a Simmons Whitetail Classic 3.5-10x40 and 3.5-10x50, Simmons AETEC 3.8-12x44, two Leupold VX3 3-9x50, Schmidt & Bender 6x42, a couple of Meopta's, Nikon Prostaff, Nikon Monarch, some others...

    They are all standard cross hair rets, the same as Multi-X.

    I like plain ret scopes :)

    Saying that, I also get along well with the Nikon Prostaff BDC ret, Edgar Brothers 10x42 Sniper (mil dot), Hawke SR6 (one of the very best air rifles rets IMHO), MAP6 etc

    I still like plain ret scopes though :)

    I've got a plain V plex ret on my Vortex Diamondback and find it perfect. No clutter, aim a wee bit higher or lower if I need to with no problem.

    Most of my scopes are multi x reticle but I call then a 30-30 reticle I have a few mill dots but I just ignore the dots as I learned to shoot by hold over and i'm to set in my ways to change now.The good thing with the milldot ect craze is some really good scopes can be picked up cheap as some seem to think they are outdated.
