Re: More FOV
I hear ya. At 20 yards or less, 4X is too much. I have shot a few deer at less than ten yards and they were almost a blur in the scope.
I am waiting for someone to come out with a reasonably priced 2-6X variable in the first focal plane with hash marks. That way you can change the power without affecting your sight in ranges of the hash marks.
I like 3X as a compromise. My Hawkes are 3X and I believe my TenPoint with the spped dial is around 3X as well as I have it set up.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
