Fixed Parallax question Simmons WTC/ hunting
I've got a recently purchased Simmons WTC scope that is fixed parallax. For hunting I normally use chairgun and zero to the near zero e.g. 14yards to give 35yard zero. (.177)
I know the scope has not been adjusted for air gun ranges but when I last zeroed at 14 yards, I then went back to around 25 yards and my POI was consistently a couple of inches left and up. Would this be parallax error or something else ?
The odd thing is when I first took it out, I only did the near zero then took a squirrel cleanly at 30yards.
I've recently fitted one of this accucover thingies so not sure if this is mucking up the POI ?
Should I just get the scope re parallaxed as it can't cope with zeroing at such close range ?
Any thoughts appreciated.
Why not try the other way? zero at 35yds & see what it does closer in.
Chairgun is to give you a general idea, it's results are not mm perfect.
Tried it again this evening and it seemed fine, may have been trigger control.
I'm getting used to the TX so it could be that. I'm not sue how relevant parallax is to be honest.
The tradjectory of the pellet when zero'd at 14 or 35yds will have a high point between these distances this is probably why your pellet hit high at 25yds, this is more noticable with .22 calibre.
