I suspect there are many here who can't explain that even for iron sights much less an optic.

You should be assessing your target right up to the moment you fire. A lot can change between setting down the spotting scope and moving to the gun. An optic and magnification is your last chance to decide for/against pulling the trigger, as well as to assess the situation downrange immediately after. As a civilian, I want every ounce of Intel I can get before shooting.

Are you saying you trued your gun/ammo to the bdc, making a new bdc, or are you saying you try to dial an ACOG?
