    Leupold mark 4 10 power

    I am shooting at 300 yards with a 308. Some of the guys use a higher power scope to make those tiny little groups. I set it up to copy more or less the typical sniper rifle with a 10 power scope I am able to make head shots at 300 yards Would it help to have a higher power to be more accurate I guess ? Then I to could make little groups

    At 300 yards (275 metres) I don't think you would gain much by more magnification, I think your load and shooting technique would give you better gains than increased scope power.

    Kiwi is right on.

    I'm not going tell you that more magnification cannot make it EASIER to shoot tiny knots on paper. What I will say is that it is not necessary. I have, shot a couple groups in the 5's with iron sights, with most load testing groups falling in the 7-9 range; there are a lot of people with my skill level, and quite a few around the country that are better.

    My point here is that 10 power is plenty at that range if you are not concerned with target identification/confirmation as part of the duty of the scope. Since you are a hole puncher, I will assume that is not your purpose.

    when you have more magnification you notice the little stuff more also. pulse rate is something that you will really notice. it will make it easier but that target won't have tight groups because you can see them better, your bullets will make a big difference.
