Just wondering, has anyone else out their experienced their scope causing an illusion in which the BB rises, but actually isn't? I'll take a shot while looking through my scope, and the BB will rise out of the FoV a little bit. The next shot I will level out the rifle and shoot. The BB then appears to float strait for a solid hundred to a hundred and twenty five feet or so. The reason I think it may be causing this phenomenom is due to the small objective lense of 32mm and the 4x magnificationf the scope amplifying the effects. Any input or am I crazy?

Yep, you lost it, your completely insane ::). It maybe possible, it could be like a curved glass effect but on the scope. The objective lens may be to much of a oval shape.

This happened to me back in the day when I used my UTG m324 (generation three). The hop up would be all set, bbs shooting on a flat projectory, and all was good. However, when I attached the scope, and looked through it (to zero it in), the shots would appear to go up, as if the hop up was set too high. Simply had to adjust the scope (turn notch to left--meaning "down") and took another shot from the rifle. If it was still appearing high, I would simply turn the notch again.

Not sure if this is the case for you though. Did you try to adjust the scope yet?

Like silent said, if you upgrade your scope you will probably not have that issue anymore. Im not sure if Leapers has mildots, but if you did get another scope its mightly helpful to get one with mildots.

No one has asked yet as to what range this scope is zeroed at... ?

If you have it set for a considerable amount of range or if your bb/power/hop combination just results in a heavy drop then you have the point of aim (poa) set low, what you are seeing is the BB actually aligning with the poa twice.

Take this picture for example. (Ignore the actual numeral figures.)


Say the yards are feet and this graph is to the extreme, if you have your scope zeroed in to match the poa with the point of impact (poi) at 250ft then you are actually going to have two areas where the poa matches the poi. Thus giving the illusion of a flat shooting rifle to have the illusion of over hop through optics.

This could be causing it, because I have nowhere to zero in the scope. Thus I am left to just looking at how far it goes or using identifable landmarks on google earth for distance...

sigh... I have nowhere except during the actual games where I can set my scope properly. The sites I go to only have ranges that are 10m long

And yes.. I think its my crappy scope... I bought it used, but when I look through it in bright daylight, I can see swirls on the glass. >.<

I had been wondering in general about what this 'phenomenon' exactly is as well; Wonko and fatcat helped me understand I think but let me get this all strait.

So what we are seeing through our scope is our bb raising up then eventually dropping; this is actually the round firing strait but because of the offset of the scope and the barrel, the bb is fired lower and when we sight in our rifle for a long distance we are essentially pointing the scope down so now we have our POA intersecting the bb's flight path at an angle then due to a limited FOV the bb enters that FOV, from the bottom of course, and leaves the FOV at the top while still on a flat trajectory just because it was going strait forward but the scope is viewing at a different angle simply losing track of the bb? ???

I am getting the feeling that I am in one of those situations where I am either right, or sooo dead wrong and have no clue what I am talking about lol. ::)
