I wish you hadn't said that!!!
I am very much like that.
Interestingly for me... Yesterday was overcast. I took my scope and some targets to a very large empty parking lot. I taped some targets to a dumpster. I had no problem seeing the holes I had made with a small pointed stick, at 211 yards.
So, when I shoot at the range... the last few times it has been hot and really bright. Earlier posts were talking about mirage.
