    Banner model #71-3944 is a 3-9x40mm variable power scope specifically described as a black powder rifle and shotgun scope. Again, this is presumably due to its short range (50 yard) parallax correction
    I like to know what if this scope is used on a long range rifle cal.7MM-08
    as far as the parallax is set at 50 yards and how will it effect long range shooting out to 200 yards????
    I see no specific mention of parallax correction is made in the Bushnell literature or specification sheet on there other scopes they sell

    It will make it extremely difficult out a 100yds and north. Distortion will replace clarity. I speak from experience.

    When you shoot that six-point buck at 200 yards and arrive at the scene, you'll find you shot the farmer's cow.:cuss:

    Or, mebee when you touch the rifle off, part of the scope will fly over your shoulder (which isn't a bad thing as you can then use the half-scope to quickly dig the cow grave befoe the farmer sees it)!

    That's all.:uhoh:
