Hi all, I'm going to be sending my Leupold FX-II 4x33 fixed power scope to USA Leupold tomorrow to have a duel erector spring installed and I asked them if I should get it re-parallexed while it is in there hands, unfortunately the Leupold agent did not have the answer but says she will let me know by tomorrow, but I'd appreciate it if you guys could advise me on the pro's and con's of re-parallexing a scope, and indeed weather or not I even need it re-parallexed?
Bearing in mind the only shooting I do is rabbit/squirrel/bird air rifle hunting and I usually engage the critters at 25-35 meters, but if conditions are ok I sometimes take shots up to 50 meters.
At the moment the sight picture looks perfectly clear and blur-free at anything beyond 10 meters so it's not so much a matter of me needing greater image clarity at short ranges becuase I rarely if ever shoot things at under 10 meters anyway, but would a re-parallex reduce the marksmanship effort and concentration I currently need to give to ensure that the crosshair is indeed pointing at that rabbits head and not just a parallex illusion? If so, what range would you experienced guys reccomend that I ask Leupold to re-parallex my scope to?
