Until recently, my 22 Anschutz had a 8x56 Nikko Sterling on the top, which was accurate, but failed at night when I lost the crosshairs when the background was dark.
So I bought a Nikko Stirling Diamond variable with an illuminated reticule. I zeroed it at 12x which worked fine, but when I backed it off to 8x, it wasn't a case of it moving the point of impact slightly, the shot completely missed the rabbit! I appreciate that variables are known for moving at different mags, but this much cant be right
I've been on the lookout for a fixed power scope 8,9 or 10x with an illuminated reticule, but it appears that fixed power scopes don't generally come with IR. Is there anybody out there who has got a scope of this description to point me in the right direction
