Default How will 50 yd. Parralex effect 200-300 yard shooting

I just accidentally purchased a 2-7 rifle scope with a 50 fixed parralex, the more I think most of the deer i want to shoot will be under 100 yards, although there maybe longer shots available to me.

So how will this setting effect shot at 200-300 yards?

It could mean the difference between a clean kill shot and a gut shot really. It may be enough to miss completely, but who knows.

It won't people have been hunting with fixed parallax scopes for years. I prefer fixed parallax, there is less to fart with. 2-10x to 4-12 with a simple bullet drop reticle. But the only way to prove it is to get out to the range and punch holes in paper.

I forget to add parallax is a problem on close range stuff and high magnification. With a 2-7X you will be fine.

It won't matter much on 2-7x

Every scope I’ve ever seen with a 50 yard parallax was a rimfire scope or a shotgun scope. I haven’t seen a shotgun scope with a 50 hard parallax in a long long time though. All of the shotgun scopes I see now have a 75 yard parallax. If your rifle is in a very light recoiling cartridge like .223 and the scope is a rimfire you will be okay. If you have a rimfire scope and your rifle is a heavier recoiling cartridge then the scope might fail.

As far as shootability I’m with the others. A 50 yard parallax scope in 2-7 is fine on 200-300 yard shots.

I agree with the "wont matter much" people.

There is a reason you don't see parallax adjustment on a lot of scopes until you get into that 10x + range...

It's not that parallax error it's there, but its not as pronounced unit you get into higher magnification ranges especially on closer targets.

Good form can help combat the amount of error... a good consistent cheek weld can go a long way for shot to shot consistency.
