Picked up a Mueller 8-36 target scope refurbished from ebay for about have price. Figured the extra magnification would be nice for test loads and shooting groups but crap don't figure it would be THIS long crazy

A longer barrel makes the scope look shorter. 20" barrel.

I always liked the looks of a long scope. I grew up shooting a 22 bolt gun my Dad had worked over, and the scope looked long on it. It was a skinny tube on that scope. But was 3/4s the length of the barrel. He had cut the barrel down and changed the angle of the bolt, refinished the stock and checkered 3/4s of the stock.

Watching your heartbeat change your POA now is going to drive you nuts, and make you even more focused on your breathing.
