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.
It's better to be smarter than you look...than to look smarter than you are.

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.
We shouldn't have to press 1 for English. Ever.
