    Now that we're all on digital cameras, what can you use instead of old negatives?
    I gave the same advice to one of my nephews and he's like, whaaat?

    We need a modern substitute, I think the last bunch of film was given to my sister who was going to get them digitalized.

    Use an Ally drink can "Coke" they are approx 0.003" these can be cut with domestic scissors, take care and do not shim too much 2 or 3 should be ok, you will hear all sorts of horror stories about bending the scope providing you keep to 2 or 3 and don't tighten the rings like a gorilla on steroids it will be ok

    Which way ? high or low.

    9m is extremely close to try & zero, but you might get a secondary zero at 9 if you stretch your primary zero

    if you have Hawke Chairgun you can play with zero ranges to work out where the pellet trajectory first crosses the line of sight.

    You might also get more replies if the thread was in general and not the review section

    You should be able to get a phone version here; https://uk.hawkeoptics.com/chairgun-...d-of-life.html

    I downloaded fresh copies for a new PC (win 11) earlier this year, just because Hawke no longer support it doesn't change how the older versions work.
