Ask Kirsten Weiss: Dealing with Scope Parallax Error

Uncommonsense asks the next Annie Oakley (Kirsten Weiss above) about something technical to do with rifles and scopes and stuff.

I recently purchased a laser bore sighter. While experimenting, I was stunned at how much parallax error I could see in my rifle scopes when looking at a target just 15 yards away. What do you do to mitigate parallax error?

Ms. Weiss replies “Uncommon Sense, I don’t want to assume. Do you have a knob on your scope for Parallax adjustment? [ED: really?] If your scope doesn’t have one there’s an easy fix. In fact, a lot of times I use this method even when my scope DOES have parallax adjustment . . .”
