I was once told that the main failing of a variable scope where price is concerned is that with a lesser expensive scope such as the 4.5-14 Nikon Buckmaster, if you change power, you lose the zero. If you're at 6 power and zoom into 12 power, you lose the zero. If you turn it back to 6 power, you still lose the zero you had at 6 power, and need to resight the scope all over again.
No.... That is simply not true.
Cheap scopes don't hold zero as well, but you generally have to go well below a Buckmaster. Even on a low end scope, changing the power won't throw them totally out of whack.
