In the shooting world what is considered close range, mid range and long range?
I had a Nikon 3.5x14x40 that I have on hold. Maybe I should reconsider that and stick with a fixed scope.
There is so much to learn. WOW!! But it is a good thing.
To me, it would be as follows:
Close range - 100 yards or less
Medium range - 100 - 500 yards
Long range - 500+ yards
I use a fixed magnification red-dot out to 100 yards. I can use it out to around 200 yards, but that is about the limit due to eyesight and age. Generally, I like a 1-4x24 or 1-6x24 scope for anything from 100 - 300 yards. For anything past that, I have to use a high magnification scope such as a 3.5-10x40mm and a 4.5-14x50mm. Both of these scopes are on precision ARs (Mk12 Mod 0 and a Mk11 Mod 0, respectively).
