I mentioned this in another thread and I'm anticipating taking a Leupold VX2 2-7x33 and sending it to have them install the CBR crossbow reticle in it and reduce the parallax setting. Their regular Crossbones scope is on a VX1 platform with a 40 yard parallax setting.  I'm hoping to improve the overall quality of the image/brightness with the VX2.

Leupold's normal instructions is to use a 20 yard zero and the adjust the mag ring until the 4 subtends for 30-40-50-60 yards align.  I intend to use a 30 yard zero and use the subtends for 40-50-60-70 yards.  The scope will probably fall in between 5x and 4x magnification, and I was thinking of having the parallax changed to 50 yards.


I would think shooting 40 - 60 yards would be fine with that setting, but how big an issue is there shooting the more likely 20 - 30 yards distances? Or is it going to be a moot point for those distances providing I stay centered in the eye box?  Thanks.

Zero it at 30 yds and know how much drop you have at 40 and hold over.  use marker tape tie off one color at 20 a second color at 30 and a third color at 40.  Those hail marry shots past that likely need as much wind drift calculation as anything.
