Title pretty much say's it. I'm having a heck of a time picking a scope. For right now, the only place I have to shoot is at a 25 yard indoor range. But I deffinatly need the magnification. I just don't know when I will be able to shoot farther, but want a scope that will do it when the time comes. I'm worried that I won't be able to use that powerfull of a scope at 25 yard's. There's alot more to this, but I'll spare you guy's for now.

Too powerful? No
Unfair advantage? Yes

Just realize that battle zero at 25 yards is not battle zero for 50 or 100 yards.

What I'm more worried about is will I be able to focus it properly.

I have no problem with my scopes.. I guess that depends on your scope. I would assume most likely. Can't you point your scope at something outside at 25 yards to see?

higher magnification means smaller field of view.

tunnel vision


Get an AIMPOINT for 25yrds.


I prefer 1-4x over 3-9 for just about anything AR, including coyote hunting.

if you need magnification at 25 yrds, you need an eye doctor or a teacher.

Well I guess I need an eye doctor. Because the target is just a blur.

Dont take this as 100% correct, but 3x @ 25 yards = 25/3 seems like 8.33 yards so that equals 12x at 100 yards. 9x at 25 yards seems like 2.78 yarsd or is like 36x @ 100 yards

How big of a target are you looking at? I cant see writing and stuff at a distance too, but only at 25 yards!! Are you using a target that is supposed to seem like 100 yards, when placed at 25 yards?

Guys.. I think he means that he has only access at this moment to 25 yards.. which is to assume it's a indoor range.

He wants to be able to shoot further out with magnification but at this time it's not available or he hasn't found a long range range.

Most good 3x9 scopes should give you a clear picture at 25 yards on 3x, but if the target is a blur at that distance you need to see an optometrist.

If you're using irons, the target should be a blur. Works a lot farther than you would think.
