Should not change point of impact. But I always set scopes on the highest power.

I do this, too. I have to lower it at 50 to see the reticle. Once I get out to 100, I crank it all the way up. I figure it's MY best chance at accuracy.

The higher dollar scopes usually won't do this. But the lower priced scopes are bad for a lot of things. I've always heard its a lot harder to make a cheap variable than a cheap fixed power scope. More parts to someday screw up. I really don't recommend buying cheap scopes. But, I have bought a few cheap 4x scopes. They will a lot of times be ok.
