This is probably a dumb question to some of you - but help me out here.

 

I have a Sightron S2 3.5x10x42

 

If it is focused on 4x or 5x and clear should it be still fine on 10x power or is it normal that I have to re-focus the scope?

 

Even though in most of my hunting situations 5x is plenty - I wonder if the focus should remain the same through out all power ranges?

 

May be I don't have it focused as well as I thought I did.Loco

I'm posing a serious question here - at least to me anyway.

   hammer,set your scope to 10x and adjust the focus until your reticle(not image)is at it's sharpest.  You should then be good to go throughout the power range. Oh,m1947's just telling you he's going on break.
 
til later
