    If a 4x28 scope has a "60 yard parallax correction distance setting" will it be useable at 15-25yds too?

    It's a Leupold FX-I 4x28mm Rimfire scope I was thinking of mounting on a .22 I use for plinking.

    You can shoot up to 25yds at the range I go to. It's used mostly by pistol shooters but they allow rifle shooting to.

    Will there be any ill effects due to the 60yd setting?

    Thanks,

    mick

    If your after one hole groups, the parallax can be a big factor. If your really consistant, and line up the same each shot, you'll be ok. I just sent my Leupold in to have the parallax set to 50yrds, and it still hits good at 100:)

    Yes it will be usable.

    As JDGRAY noted, if you put your eye in the same place behind the scope every shot, parallax is mostly meaningless anyway.

    Especially at 15-25 yards, and especially for plinking.

    If the 60 yard setting Leupold uses on rim-fire scopes was not suitable, they wouldn't be doing it.
