Had a few questions for you on temperature sensitivity and mag power.

to find three scopes that perform exactly alike. I wanted to have the same type of scope on all my FT rigs and I found it in the Sightron III. With a small adjustment to the objective lens, I have them all focusing down to just under 10yds. They repeat consistently and so far I have not seen any negative effects from temperature or light. As Mr.TX 200 wrote, I cleared an away from home course last week-end with a Sightron III and my newly acquired USFT #28. Here is a link to that performance:http://www.home.earthlink.net/~desotoai ... /id168.htm

I am happy with them and based on how they perform for me I would not hesitate to recommend a Sightron III as being a very good scope for the job.

I also attribute some of that performance to "beginners" luck. A new gun brings out the best in all of us....we are excited and very careful to follow all the core principles that we have learnt. It's like dating a new girl...we do everything right to impress her. Once we get her we take her for granted and then wonder why she no longer performs

How did you get around the near focus at 40ft ? Again, great shooting. It's always amazing to me when someone cleans a course. So much can happen at anytime. Great stuff man.

to sub 10yds, set the side wheel to its lowest objective, then you remove the objective lens locking ring and rotate the objective lens until an object placed at 10 yds is in focus...then I continue to rotate a little beyond that. I don't remember the direction of rotation (never made notes) but you will easily see if you target is getting sharper or fuzzier. Lastly carefully replace the locking ring.
