    This is what I spent my morning doing after discovering WalMart sold all the
    $98 Toshiba HD-DVD players before they were supposed to :(

    I'm curious as to why folks go with those fixed power scopes. What's the reason behind this? Better clarity? Is this a paper puncher for one set distance? Genuinly curious to know. I would think an adjustable power would be more versatile.

    Pimp ass gun though. I have one of those on my 'list'.

    Some say that a mil-dot reticle is useless on a variable power scope. Some say
    fixed magnification leaves less parts to break (I sort of agree with this).

    I usually shoot with the scope on my AR at 9x anyway, I rarely change it. The
    10x should be good for any logical distances I'll be shooting.

    Mainly I wanted the SuperSniper because I've talked to people who have
    used it to kill people in wartime and others who have used them a lot on
    animals and deer who love them. Supposedly decent quality glass and
    very tough.

    For me, it was a question of cost. My 16X SS is a stop-gap until I:

    1) Learn to shoot longer distances (600yd+)
    2) Have the money to spend on a variable power piece of glass made by US Optics or S&B

    Explain 'parallax' to me. Wikipedia just confused me.

    Difference between point of aim and point of impact due to the scope not being on the same plane as the barrel. Another example is a camera. Looking through the viewfinder what the aperture is aimed at.

    Time to dork this up!

    Parallax error for a riflescope has to do with centerline of your scope not being colinear with the bore. The problem becomes greater as the distance between centerlines increases. Increasing the distance to the target begins to negate the effects of increased centerline-to-senterline distance, but there's a reason that scopes tend to be mounted as low as possible on a rifle (example: when outfitting an AR with a scope, flat-top receivers are preferred over carrying handle mounts). The closer the optic centerline to the bore, less adjustment should be necessary to accomodate varying target distances.

    Example:
    [​IMG]

    (distance units are arbitrary, and yes that's one odd-looking rifle)

    An instamatic camera with an independent optical viewfinder has the same problem. A SLR camera does not.

    Planar parallax errors most commonly occur with things like clocks and speedometers where the dial moves in a different plane parallel to the scale. The greater your angle off the dial axis, the greater the error as the axis/dial sweep plane diverges from your viewpoint. Error also increases as the distance from the dial to the scale surface increases.

    (Hour hand exhibits less "error" than minute hand)

    The packaging for the base/rings seems to have disappeared. They're Leupold,
    rings are medium height, I forget what the base is, should be the standard
    1pc set-up that Leupold shows in the catalog for the Savage 10FP.


    I usually don't toss the packaging....I'll try to find it and get model numbers
    later.
