First off, if my question has been asked before, I am sorry; I am new to these forums, and my search attempts couldn't find anything relevant to what I was attempting to ask.
I recently bought a scope for my also recently bought Ruger 10/22. I noticed when I look through my scope at a non-busy image (for example, a blank portion of a target or a wall, etc), that I can see the scope reticles sharply and crisply.
However, when I look at a target (the range I go to provides red/white 10 point targets) I noticed that my crosshairs get blurry; I can still make them out, but I thought this was strange. I tried adjusting the focus, but, at best, I either didn't change anything or took it even MORE out of focus.
Now, if I move it back onto a solid object (blank portion of a target), it shifts almost immediately back into crisp focus.
I've never used a scope before, I've only used iron sights; is this normal?
I was able to pull off quarter-sized groupings at 75 yards, and it was hitting where I was aiming when I finally had it zeroed in, and I can SEE the cross-hairs, they're just blurry.
Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant or not: Due to surgery I needed on my eyes when I was younger, I am left-eye dominant, but sight through my right eye, and only have 5% of normal depth perception according to my eye doctor.
Also, Here is the scope.
(I got the $80.00 silver one)
