If the reticle appears to actually move around on the target itself when moving head, it is parallax problem, that means the parallax is adjusted incorrect for that distance. Most factories adjust scopes meant to be mounted on centerfire rifles to be parallax free at 100-150 yards, whereas rimfire scopes are adjusted at factory to be parallax free at 50 yards. Buying a scope featuring adjustable objective or side focus will eliminate this problem as it can then be user adjusted to be parallax free at different distances-even though the methods are actually different.
ok but you cant adjust the parallax by adjusting the occular lens am i correct?
