That is fine, its one most of us are used to but I would suggest that you will find your best shooting will be somewhere between 9X and 12X. beyond that unless you are tied down solid on a good bench you will have to much jitter in your scope for a good sight picture.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
